Soho Standardbreds produced another young winner in Justbritell (Courage Under Fire x Soho Artemis) on Friday night at Melton in the Shakamaker Classic for 2 year olds. With a powerful finishing burst Justbritell ran down exciting young colt Padrisimo who had already won 5 of his 6 lifetime starts. The flat tyre made the effort even more impressive by Justbritell. He was sold by Robert Watson and Soho Standardbreds at the APG Sales in Melbourne for $10,000 in 2012. The first prize in the Shakamaker of $13,000 is making the investment look good at this stage. We would like to thank the owners A J Young and T F Cahill for investing in a Soho Yearling and wish them well in the future with their young gelding Justbritell.
