No Return Returns
21 August 2015
No Return is expected to realise his full potential over middle distances, but in the meantime he gave a sneak preview of what’s to come at Newcastle on Tuesday. The New Zealand-raced son of Pins opened his account over 1600 metres at his fifth appearance.
Prepared by champion trainer Chris Waller and ridden by Blake Shinn, the four-year-old was originally bought out of WS’s 2013 Select Sale draft at Karaka for $120,000. He was purchased by Go Racing’s Albert Bosma with Black Caps cricket captain Brendon McCullum also involved in the ownership.
“A very promising stayer who will get better over ground,” Bosma tweeted following the victory.
No Return was a trial winner at Cambridge in January under Stephen Marsh’s guidance before he was sent to Sydney. He is out of the Centaine mare Rich Return, who is a half-sister to the Gr 2 Wellington Cup winner Megapins with the former top-class sprinter-miler Shifnal Prince also featuring in the pedigree.
