Boom Time & Sin To Win Impress at Flemington

Last year's Caulfield Cup winner, Boom Time showed his style on Saturday, simply toying with his rivals, he took out the 2000-metre Poitrel Hall of Fame Trophy at Flemington, giving young apprentice Lachlan King the second leg of his first ever metropolitan double.

The son of Flying Spur who finished 12th in the Japan Cup, then close runner up at Flemington just two weeks ago on his racing return in Australia looks the goods to line up this year to defend his Cup title.

However, not long after Boom Time's runaway win, another stable Cups contender appeared.
New Zealand import Sin To Win (by Sir Percy (GB)) showed no fear over the 3200 metres to take the major race of the day, the Listed Andrew Ramsden Stakes under the guide of Andrew Mallyon.

Ironically both horses probably should have won at the last Flemington meeting. Apprentice Fred Kersley will not look back at his ride on Boom Time (when he finished second) as one of the finest moments in his fledgling career while Sin To Win got no chance to show what he could after clipping heels early in his race and unshipping jockey Corey Parish in the process.

''Today evertyhing went to plan. He Andrew Mallyon rode Sin To Win patiently into the straight and left the horse with a good kick. Now that he's a two-mile winner, it opens up a few doors for him.
I think he is still got improvement to come. said Tom Dabernig of the 5 year old gelding who was purchased by Mark Pilkington and races in Gary Lechte's fluro colours.

Ben Hayes, also at Flemington was all praise for Boom Time stating ''On that run he would be a good chance to defend that Caulfield Cup crown. The plan was always to give him one or two runs in the autumn to give him a nice base, now we will give him a little spell, bring him back and he will have good fitness on his side,"

He will follow a weight for age program all the way through. The Caulfield Cup will be the main target.
