Four-year-old trotter Scooting Around, a winner at Shepparton and Cranbourne recently, is proving a handy meal ticket for trainer Dylan Stratford and a group of well known Cranbourne identities.
The syndicate comprising David Scott, Robert Blanche, Duncan McPherson, John Murdoch, Bill Hutchison and Rob Molloy outlaid $17,000 for the chestnut Bacardi Lindy gelding at the 2018 Australasian Premier Trotting Sale.
He has netted $35,845 from five wins and nine placings 32 starts so far.
Eight APTS sale graduates have tasted success in the past fortnight including two Group winners in Aldebaran Zeus and Banglez - both graduates of the 2019 sale - who won their respective Group 1 $50,000 APTS 3YO Finals at Kilmore.
Banglez, who was bought for $14,000, has now banked $94,940 including two Group 1s, while Aldebaran Zeus, who failed to reach his reserve, boasts a bankroll of $75,910.
Doubletap and Aldebaran Selena, who were both knocked down at the 2019 APTS sale, finished first and third respectively in a heat of the Springboard Series at Albion Park.
Other recent winners from APTS sales have been Constantinople, a winner at Ballarat and Maryborough, Cover Of Darkness (Bendigo), Aldebaran Stevie (Melton) and Im Daddy Warbucks (Maryborough). All were graduates of the 2018 APTS sale.
