“I am absolutely wrapped and thrilled to have secured two outstanding stayers from the powerful Llyod Williams stable. Mark and I enjoyed our time inspecting a number of horses at Macedon Lodge yesterday and am delighted to confirm that we secured both Our Century and Goathland privately. Both Our Century and Goathland will be aimed at Group and Listed staying events during the Brisbane winter Carnival culminating in the Brisbane Cup. I originally headed to Macedon Lodge with the intension of purchasing one stayer following the recommendation from Lloyd whom is a close friend of Mark’s however after inspections I fell in love with both Our Century and Goathland and decided to buy both for $145,000 each. I’m extremely excited to have them both heading to Wyong with the prospect of winning a big staying race in the coming months” added Kim.
