Sunday was Northam’s popular Toodyay meeting, and the stable had two runners in the Radio West Northam Handicap over 1,350 metres – OUR BRUCIE BONUS and SEACHANGER, neither of which was fancied.

The early pace in the race was set by Lord Hatras and My Charader, with the stable’s two runners at the back. Before the turn chances of victory looked slim, but OUR BRUCIE BONUS moved through the field smoothly and set off after favourite Popacorka. He collared the leader 100 metres from home, and ran out an easy winner by 1 1/4 lengths under jockey Jason Whiting. SEACHANGER ran on to finish a promising 3rd.

A good win for OUR BRUCIE BONUS, only second up from a spell, which gave connections hope that he might stay further this prep.

Well done to Peter and Matt for getting the Spirit Of Bunbury homebred to gain his third victory. Hopefully there may be more to come!
