Booming day out for Munce and his gang
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.
