Connections of impressive young colt State Of Wealth are looking towards a start in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas for their horse after his spectacular win at Eagle Farm Racecourse yesterday.
The Ad Valorem colt won the Noel Wilson Memorial Three-Years-Old Maiden Plate ahead of second-place getter Sweet And Vicious and third place-getter In Taipei yesterday.
“He’s got to prove himself in a three-year-old open race on a Saturday first but he’s been nominated for the Caulfield Guineas,” trainer Brian Smith said.
“He’s a very classy animal.”
State Of Wealth was purchased by Grahame Pollock from the Magic Millions Yearling Sales.
Pollock’s son now owns the colts along with Glenn Buckland and Money And Chicks syndicate.
“His grandmother, Ruffles, won a (Group One) Newmarket Handicap,” Pollock said.
“I go to all the yearling sales and I picked him out as one of the best at the sales.
“I thought he would be in my price range of $50,000 but I ran into a trainer at the sales who told me he expected him to fetch around $100,000.
“I wasn’t too happy so I went back into the ring and still made a bid.
“I couldn’t believe it when no-one else wanted him and when he was knocked down to us I was shaking all over.”
State Of Wealth’s connections are now hopeful that the talented youngster will continue to prove himself on his way to the $1 million Caulfield Guineas in Melbourne on October 8, 2011.
