FLEMINGTON trainer Saab Hasan has lost talented stayer Shoreham.

“It is hurtful not because the owners wanted to sell him, but because we weren’t given the opportunity, as promised, to buy him,” Hasan said.

Saab bought the now five-year-old for $60,000 and he has earned almost $500,000.

“I could have syndicated him in 10 minutes because I had owners lined up,” Hasan said. “But before I could make a bid on Monday as arranged, a float arrived and he’s now gone.”
