Group One-placed mare Soft Sand has a new trainer after being purchased jointly by BC3 Thoroughbreds and Arrowfield Stud.
The mare had been trained by Colin Little at Caulfield and has won four of 12 starts including the Listed Kevin Hayes Stakes.
She will be prepared for her next campaign by Paul Messara.
The four-year-old was runner-up to Appearance in the Group One Myer Classic at Flemington last month before a spell.
Soft Sand will chase a Group One win during the autumn with an international campaign also possible.
Messara campaigned Ortensia overseas this year, winning Group One races in Dubai and England with the sprinter.
