T&T owners eyeing Come Dance With Me

CASH Pot Trophy winner COME DANCE WITH ME is reportedly being eyed by Trinidadian owners attached to Anthony Nunes' barn.
Howard Hamilton, who owns the speedy Blue Pepsi Lodge-Soca Dancer filly, said he will sell if the price is right.
Trinidadians Stephan Narinesingh and Christian Gokool last month acquired Pick-3 Super Challenge winner ALACRANN on the eve of the Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes, which he duly won.
Hamilton, president of Jamaica's Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association, confirmed on Thursday that he has been made offers, but declined to say from whom.
"Up to this morning, I got an email. Everybody is interested in her," he said, describing the speedy chestnut filly as "a nice horse".
"I will sell anything, as long as I get the right price," he added, though not disclosing the price offered. He did, however, give a hint of his assessment of her worth.
"She has the 1000 Guineas to win and the Oaks. Those are big purses. If they are $5m races, for COME DANCE WITH ME, that would be worth close to US$50,000.
"If she has those races to win, that's a guideline as to the value to put on her," he pointed out.
