Hardline back in style
14 Sep 2015Hallmark Stud's star performer Hardline has made a victorious return to racing with a stroll to victory at the Sunshine Coast.
The Listed Karaka Million winner had an easy time of it when resuming and cruised home under a hold.
Eagle Farm trainer Liam Birchley said he would probably give Hardline another start in Queensland before considering loftier options interstate.
"I'm just glad to see him do what I thought he would," he said.
"I'm happy to stay up here with him for one more run and then we can look at going south."
The son of Showcasing was purchased out of Hallmark's 2014 Select Sale line-up at Karaka by Birchley for $130,000.
His dam Midnight Breaker, a multiple winner, is from the family of Perlin (Gr 1 Underwood Stakes, Gr 1 Doomben Cup).
