A BARGAIN buy from Melbourne looks set to build the bank balance of Brighton trainer John Luttrell after his four-year-old mare Savvy Princess scored an impressive win in the navy Week Class One handicap over 1100 metres at Tattersall’s Park today.
Savvy Princess (Peter Mertens) led then shared the lead to the home turn before bursting clear.
The Savabeel mare then staved off determined challenges from placegetters Bazanne and Miss No Socks.
Luttrell purchased a few horses at a sale in Melbourne last year and Savvy Princess is one of four that he brought back to Tasmania.
The mare won at her third race start and after another preparation was placed on the market for $7000.
