DOUG Harrison may reconsider a trip to Adelaide next Saturday with Search Squad, winner of today’s New Zealand Bloodstock Handicap at Sportingbet Park.

Harrison said he’d planned to take Search Squad to the Group 2 Sportingbet Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville before the gelding flopped at Caulfield last week.

While he did not know if Search Squad would back up for a third consecutive Saturday he said it would be something to consider over the coming days.

“I think he has the makings of quite a handy horse,” Harrison predicted.

“It took a little while to get him going, but he’s always shown a lot of ability. He has just kept improving.

“He can really ping off a high speed. You like them when they can do things like that.

“If he had won last week I was going to take him over to Adelaide, but know we’ll just have to see what we do with him.”

Harrison paid $85,000 for Search Squad, a son of Falkirk, at a ready to run sale in New Zealand.

He said he was looking for another Falkirk after he had previously bought Falcent and he landed up Search Squad.

Search Squad, an $11 chance, scored by a short neck from Self Sense, $13, with a half neck to Tankster, $18, third.

Darney Gib, the $5 favorite, finished a close up fifth.
