Boom­ing day out for Munce and his gang

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING -

CHRIS Munce was tossed around from owner to owner like a ten­pin but he didn’t mind a bit af­ter Boom­sara landed a group of more than 20 own­ers a mem­o­rable Magic Mil­lions 3YO Guineas on the Gold Coast yes­ter­day.

“I was a bit crook be­fore the race but I’m all right now,” Munce said.

Boom­sara looked un­der siege at the 200m but fought off Syd­ney raider Bondi and the more fan­cied lo­cal Out- back Bar­bie to land a mon­ster pay­day for his own­ers, who shelled out just $45,000 for the son of Spirit Of Boom.

The Guineas was one of the few races to elude Munce as a jockey but he said yes­ter­day’s suc­cess eas­ily eclipsed the emo­tion of his three Magic Mil­lions 2YO vic­to­ries.

“No com­par­i­son, 100 per cent this is bet­ter,” he said. “You put a lot of hard work into them and for ev­ery­thing to come to fruition is just a great thrill.”

Tim Clark car­ried out 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 ex­pertly through the mid­dle stages.
