Belmont Bloodstock purchases dead-heat in 2YO race

Saturday’s Adelaide meeting at Morphettville saw a thrilling finish to the two year-old race, with an Artie Schiller gelding and a Not A Single Doubt filly battling out a nail-gripping finish in which the judge was not able to separate.

Ironically, both of these youngsters were bought at auction by Belmont Bloodstock. Moving Money (Artie Schiller – Subsequential by Second Empire) was a $60,000 purchases at the 2010 Inglis Premier Sale, offered by leading South Australian nursery Mill Park. Trained by Leon MacDonald, Moving Money has won two races from five starts and is one of seven winners for promising first season sire Artie Schiller.

Comearoundsundown (Not A Sinlge Doubt – Voltara by More Than Ready) was passed in for $15,000 as a weanling at the 2009 Inglis Weanling & Bloodstock Sale and a deal was then negotiated to purchase her from vendor/breeders Rob & Maureen McBryde of Summerset Park.

Comearoundsundown is trained at Strathalbyn by Brian Mueller and like Moving Money, is now a winner of two races. Her sire Not A Single Doubt continues to do a great job at stud from a relatively low fee and already has the ‘full book’ sign up at Arrowfield Stud this season.
