PIERRO seven-year-old Bonaparte’s metropolitan win at Doomben was well-deserved.
“He’s had a very good prep so far,” said trainer Stuart Kendrick.
“He was unlucky last start,” he said, referring to a third placing in a NMW (1200m) at Doomben on a heavy track just under a month ago.
On Saturday, August 20, Brodie Loy, who has been on the horse’s back for his past three, made amends with a perfect ride.
He timed his run brilliantly, lifting Bonaparte ($7) to a win in the final bound in the CG&E Benchmark 75 (1200m).
“It was another win for the Archer Park colours and some other good clients,” Kendrick said.
“He has been very consistent and is another good purchase from the Inglis online auction,” he said.
Since transferring to Kendrick Racing from Michael Moroney in 2020 as a Class 1 horse, Bonaparte has scored five wins and a raft of placings from 20 starts.
He is fast closing in on $200,000 in prize money.
