in­struc­tions to per­fec­tion after be­ing called in to re­place Damian Browne on Fri­day, tak­ing his time to cross from the wide draw and con­trol­ling the tempo through the mid­dle stages.

“We would love for (Browne) to have rid­den him today and he rode the horse so well last start. We’re cer­tainly think­ing of him and we wish him well,” Munce said.

“I knew they wouldn’t get by him trav­el­ling as easy as he was at the 1200m.

“He trav­elled nice, Timmy rated him beau­ti­fully and he started to coax him up from the 600m and I’m just so thrilled.”

Clark said Bondi and Out­back Bar­bie both had their chances.

“Chris was pretty con­fi­dent. He told me yesterday he would PURE ELA­TION: (From left) Boom­sara edges out Bondi and Out­back Bar­bie in the Magic Mil­lions Guineas; (top) Chris Munce and Tim Clark with the tro­phies; and (above) Munce en­joys the mo­ment with his daugh­ter Caitlin. Pic­tures: Track­side Pho­tog­ra­phy win,” Clark said. “He was en­ti­tled to be con­fi­dent after his last win. It was a strong win last start and he just had to repli­cate some­thing sim­i­lar to that and he was go­ing to take a power of beat­ing.

“Once he gets to the front, he’s a hard horse to get past.”

Boom­sara con­tin­ues the bril­liant start to the stud ca­reer of Eureka Stud’s Spirit Of Boom, who is also the sire of Out­back Bar­bie.

He races in the colours of Eureka, who kept a share in Boom­sara after sell­ing him to Munce and stud prin­ci­pal Scott McAlpine rates it as close to his most ex­cit­ing mo­ment in racing.

“This prob­a­bly nearly takes it to the big­gest one. I know Sea Cabin won back in 1988, but this is ex­cit­ing stuff,” he said.
