Clients associated with their yard purchased Bustling, previously trained by , for $2 million.

Bustling has had an impressive career so far, with five starts yielding four wins and a second place.

His recent victories include the Listed Perth Stakes (1100m), Group 2 Karrakatta Plate (1200m), and Group 3 (1400m).

The new owners aim to secure a spot for him in The Everest.

Kent Jnr shared his enthusiasm, saying, “It's been a to deal with Dan Morton and Neville and Susan Duncan and Carol Morton and Mr McDonald.

“We have acquired the horse with some of our stable clients to come across here. It's very exciting and he looks a real, real talent.”

He added, “Dan's staying in for a small piece and that's a massive positive.

“The Everest is the obvious race to think of if you have a nice sprinter on your hands.

“That race has been good to three-year-olds, and it appears to be a changing of the guard at the moment in Australia with the sprinting ranks.

“I think there is a spot there for a bright young prospect. It will be nice to have a slot secured early in the piece.”

In another update from their stable, the unbeaten three-year-old Sure, a gelded son of So You Think, will be sent to the paddock for a spell.

Sure has won both of his starts to date, making a debut over 1600m at on April 18 and following it up with a dominant 2.5-length victory at , despite starting from the widest barrier.

Price reflected on Sure's performance, saying, “We had to ride him cold because he drew barrier ten, but I thought to loop them and sustain an effort from the 600 [metres], 400, 200 was a .

“He was shin sore … so I think you'll find he'll go to the paddock and get ready for his life as a four-year-old. He has surpassed expectations.

“You never know until race day sometimes … they are the test and I thought he's come through with flying colours twice.”

Price concluded, “I don't think he is a staying So You Think. I think he's a mile horse.

“He will definitely improve, he will put on weight, he'll grow, he'll get a good tough pair of front legs on him … he's got a lot of options in front of him that horse.”
