Filly Caps a Successful Day for Per Incanto

Saturday, 17 October 2020 20:13

Exciting filly Bonham (Per Incanto-Fortune’s Choice by Redoutes Choice) remains unbeaten following her success in the three-year-old fillies event at Hastings on Saturday.

A three- length winner on debut at Woodville last month, the LA bred filly was equally impressive at Hastings, quickening up around the home turn to gather in the leaders before drawing away from her rivals late.

Bonham was purchased from LA’s 2019 Karaka Book 1 draft by prominent owner Gary Harding for $160,000. 

Bookmakers reacted to Bonham’s latest win by shortening the Per Incanto filly into a $6 second favourite for next month’s Group 1 (1600m) Barneswood Farm New Zealand 1000 Guineas.

Per Incanto also sired the winner of the feature sprint at Saturday’s other domestic meeting at Ellerslie courtesy of his thoroughly genuine son Justacanta (Per Incanto-Just Casual by Casual Lies).

 

Good, sound, well educated horses
