Gollan joined many other Australian owners and trainers heading to the Karaka sale in Auckland where he bought smart filly Epaumada last year.
“She was the only horse I got last year and she has won both her starts. I was a bit behind with her otherwise she would have run in the Karaka Million,” Gollan said.
“I have had a bit of luck with the sale as we picked up Amex (a stakes winning stayer) here a few years back.”
Gollan's stars are out spelling or just back in work with a big winter in mind.
Unbeaten Zoustyle has been spelling but using the water walker and will be back in Gollan's stables within a fortnight.
He is likely to resume in mid April with the major winter three-year-old sprints his aim.
“I am looking at putting blinkers on her. My big decision is whether to stick with the three-year-old races or head to the fillies and mares stakes races with her.”
Top colt EF Troop is back in Gollan's stables and he is also being set for the winter.
