    HEADING to the yearling sales, Colin Holloway was given strict instructions from his wife, Heather…”no more horses”!

    Failing to adhere to the boss’ warning, Holloway purchased a trotting filly and then did his best to hide the evidence.

    “Our granddaughter Demi wanted to go to the sale, so Colin said they could go for the day out but I said no more horses,” Heather explained.

    “Then Bruce Edwards saw a horse and liked it, so Colin put his hand up and bought it.

    “He even put it on Brucve’s account to try and hide it from me, but on the way home Demi rang and told me all about it.

    “It took her all of five minutes to give him up and Colin said he could see the fumes coming out of the phone.

    “I was home alone that day, so the doors were locked, and that’s how they stayed for a little while when he first got home!”

    Aptly-named No Telling Heather, the two-year-old gave Holloway’s defiance some justification by capturing last night’s Haras Des Trotteurs-sponsored Nutrien Sale Final in Bendigo.

    With Brett Holloway in the sulky, No Telling Heather led throughout from barrier five to account for Maoris Mac and The Priestess.

    Breaking her maiden at her third start – having been among the placings during her two previous outings – No Telling Heather took her earnings to $33,550.

    “I wouldn’t say all is forgotten, but watching her win has reduced the anger,” Heather joked. “Let’s just say it’s turned out well so far, but Colin won’t get away with it so easily if he tries it again.”
