Change of Environment for Smart Kiwi Colt
The connections of talented Kiwi colt Lincoln Blue (Savabeel-Prickle, by Pins) are considering transferring him to a stable in Australia, reports NZ racing Desk. The stakes-winning son of Savabeel blotted his copybook when he finished well back in the Gr1 New Zealand Derby after bucking out of the gates. "It was very disappointing and we don't know what caused that, we're still guessing," trainer Lisa Latta said. "We're looking at Sydney for him and he may transfer to another stable, we're looking at all the options at the moment." A winner of the Gr3 Wellington Stakes and the Listed 3YO Salver earlier in the season, Lincoln Blue is a brother to Gr1 Queensland Derby winner Brambles and a direct descendant of stakes-winning mare Lady Aloof, dam of champion filly Slight Chance (Centaine).
