Impressive Invercargill winner Forsure looks set to head to Australia where he’ll be trained by Tim Butt.

The Art Major three year who’s out of eighteen win Washington VC mare Foreal is owned by Shona and Syd Brown of Mosgiel and is trained by Branxholme horseman Kirk Larsen.

“He’s always had a bit of ability but we’ve looked after him and he’s started to click now,” Larsen said after Forsure ran home strongly down the middle of the track to beat favourite Under Wraps by a neck.

“Beckie (Allan Beck driving Tartan Trilogy) gave me a cart into the race and that was the makings of the win for me.”

The Browns race Forsure’s full brother My Field Marshal out of Butt’s stable. My Field Marshal has won twenty nine races and banked nearly 1.5 million dollars in stakes.

Larsen says although he’s sad to see Forsure leaving the stable the move makes sense.

“He’s paid up for a series in Australia. He’s going to Tim’s at Menagle and the horse will love the fast mile racing. Syd’s got plenty of young ones at home by Betting Line and Captaintreachous so there’s plenty coming on.”
