Sensational Winning Return for Supido Colt
Talented Supido colt What You Need kept his record to a perfect two from two when resuming from a spell to win at Flemington on Saturday.
Trained by Mick Price and Michael Kent Jr, What You Need won easily at Geelong last spring before heading to the paddock and was brilliant in the 1100m three year-old handicap, bolting away to win by more than three lengths for Ben Melham.
"How impressive was that!?"

“He went better than I thought he would and whatever he’s done here today, I believe there is improvement in him fitness wise,” said Mick Price, who revealed the $1million Group II ATC Arrowfield Sprint in Sydney is on April 8 is on the agenda..
“He’ll go to a $500,000 Listed race (Sunlight Classic) here in a couple of weeks time, 1100m down the straight and that should set him up nice for a possible trip to Sydney.”
A $180,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Widden Stud draft for his trainer, What You Need was bred by Widden in partnership and runs for a syndicate of stable clients with Widden Stud also retaining an interest.
He is a half-brother to Group III winner Runway Star and is the third winner from stakes-placed Commands mare Intuit, a daughter of Group I winner Wrap Around and half-sister to the dams of Champion 2YO Filly Fashions Afield and also this year’s Magic Millions 3YO Guineas winner Fashion Legend.
Intuit had a colt by Zousain last spring and was then covered by Portland Sky.
