Boomer on a Promise in Silk Stocking

With A Promise looks a cheap buy for owner Mike Crooks in light of her Listed victory in the Silk Stocking (1200m) at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

The 3yo daughter of I Am Invincible also increased her residual value with black-type for Crooks and his wife Patty who race their horses under the Mishani Enterprises banner.

Boomer Bloodstock (FBAA) agent Craig Rounsefell bought her on behalf of the Beaudesert couple for $26,000 at the 2015 Gold Coast Magic Millions.  The Silk Stocking improved her record to 5 wins in 11 starts for over $140,000 in prizemoney.

With A Promise led throughout to hold off late closer Nancy by a short half-head.  “She’s been flying on the track and is so tough and genuine,” trainer Ben Currie declared.  “They got to her two or three times in the straight but she just tries her guts out.”

Her dam Danrese (Hurricane Sky) won three race up to a mile in Sydney for Gwenda Markwell and she is a half-sister to Adelaide stakes winner Vignor (Flying Spur).

Rounsefell followed up with a pair of 3yo winners for trainer Lindsey Smith at Northam on Sunday.

He purchased Paris Texas (Hinchinbrook) for $60,000 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions and the filly won first-up in the Avon Valley for part-owners Chris Wells and Tony Patrizi.

Prize Catch (Zoffany) was a $42,000 Inglis yearling and he started a short-priced favourite for a syndicate headed by former Carlton premiership player Ross Ditchburn.
