WA trainer Steve Wolfe and local agent Noel Carter celebrated their best ever result on Saturday when Lordhelpmerun won the G3 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Ascot.
“I’ve got stables in Albany and Perth and spend a lot of time on the road,” Wolfe said when interviewed after the victory. “It’s an 800km round trip so having good staff is essential. The girls do all the work at home and Noel is a good client, good mate and was a bloody good footy player.”
Carter won premierships with Richmond and South Fremantle before launching Commercial Bloodstock Services (FBAA). Among his recent city winners for Wolfe have been Three Secrets (So Secret), My Greek Boy (Myboycharlie), You’re A Rum’in (Starcraft) and Trichologist (War Pass) who was also runner-up in a G2 Karrakatta Plate.
“Noel and I paid $25,000 for Lordhelpmerun at the Perth Magic Millions last year,” Wolfe told Aushorse. “He’s by Playing God who was a very good horse in Perth and he was Group 1 placed in Melbourne.
“We also bought another Playing God at the sale and Lordhelpmerun was actually supposed to be called What About Moses, but we had a clerical stuff up in the office. Anyway, the other one is called What About Moses and he’s trialling well.”
Wolfe indicated Lordhelpmerun will attempt to emulate his sire in the G2 WA Guineas (1600m) at the Ascot summer carnivals. Playing God won the 2010 WA Guineas and then defeated all-comers for the first of two Group 1 victories in the Kingston Town Classic.
