Boom Time drifted from $6.50 to start at $9 but was too strong for the more fancied Goldstream ($5) who pushed up along the fence by Craig Williams to run second with the winner’s stablemate and favourite Pilote D’Essai ($4.60) with Regan Bayliss in the saddle holding on for third after setting the pace.

Lindsay Park Co-trainer David Hayes said that Boom Time has now earned a chance to run in the Group 1 $1.5m Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington on March 11.

“We under rated him a little bit. He just failed at the Gold Coast. Going into the Gold Coast his form was impeccable,” Hayes said.

“His stablemate got a nice soft lead in front and with the benefit of a run I thought he would might be too sharp but obviously Boom Time is a pretty good horse on his day.”

“Maybe we’ll get a bit ambitious and go for the Australian Cup. He’s still an entire and he’s got a stallion’s pedigree.”

Boom Time scored a hat trick of wins with victory in a 2500m Handicap at Flemington December 17 before going to the Gold Coast to run fifth as favourite in the $1m Moet & Chandon Magic Millions Trophy (2200m) on January 14.

Winning jockey Mark Zahra gave Boom Time a soft run behind the leader Pilote D’Essai and when he pulled him out in the straight the Flying Spur stallion was in for the fight and knuckled down over the concluding stages to record a half a length win over Goldestream with  Pilote D’Essai another half a length away in third spot.

“I was in the right spot, they went quick enough and I came out when I wanted and he gave me something to catch that horse,” Zahra said.

“He was strong through the line.”

“There was a bit of a fight in the straight but he was too strong in the end.”

    What you composed was actually very reasonable. But, think on this, what if you were to write a killer post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write article headlines to grab people to open the links. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit more interesting.|
