Tim Butt isn’t one to rest on his laurels.
Fresh from his Grand Circuit triumph last weekend at Albion Park with Let It Ride stamping himself as a genuine star of the future following his easy victory in the Gr.1 $200,540, UBET Blacks A Fake Queensland Championship, the champion trainer is already plotting his next move.
And it could mean a return trip to Brisbane next year.
Butt and stable clients have negotiated a deal to secure unbeaten Riverina two-year-old Whereyabinboppin from the stables of Steven Harris for a six figure sum.
Whereyabinboppin is a son of first season sire A Rocknroll Dance from the Modern Art mare Whereyawheeliebin, a winner of 5 races.
He is the first foal to race from the mare.
The speedy gelding has looked ultra-impressive in both victories at Wagga with the latest coming on July 17 when scoring by over 34m in a time of 1:56.5 for the 1755m.
The current track record at Wagga belongs to Untitled at 1:55.6 set back in May this year.
Whereyabinboppin will start this Sunday at Bathurst in the consolation of the Alabar NSW Regional Breeders Challenge.
He will start from the outside of the second-line, gate 11 in the 1730m event.
With Butt heading to Victoria next week with his talented three-year-old trotter Majestic Courtney who will tackle the Gr.1 $75,000 Seelite Windows & Doors Victoria Derby at Maryborough (August 5), he will pick-up his latest acquisition on the way south.
And Butt is already looking at the Derby classics next season.
Who knows, he might be aiming at claiming the Blacks A Fake and Queensland Derby double next year.
And given how good his Group One record is, it’s hard to doubt him.
