Pizarro Scores At Rosehill With Peach Bowman Ride

Promising galloper Pizarro was able to give his owners an added bonus when winning at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday. Having his last start as a 3YO before the turn of the new season, Pizarro notched up an important victory which included a $22,500 BOBS Bonus on top of the first prize of $76,500. The son of All Too Hard has been building up to a Saturday win with two second placings this preparation. Stepping up to 1300m was key for the gelding as was the booking of champion hoop Hugh Bowman who stuck solid after partnering him at his two previous runs. 

 

Given an awkward draw, jumping from the widest gate in the field of 9 runners, Bowman settled Pizarro at the rear of the field and at the 1000m mark, he allowed him to stride forward in a 3 wide position with cover behind Bitcoin Baby. This allowed Bowman to take a closer sit and be in striking distance when rounding the home turn. He traveled up strongly and pulled away over the concluding stages to win stylishly by 0.71 of a length. 

 

"I ended up with a lovely run in transit and he settled beautifully" Bowman told connections after the race. "When the pressure started to build, he had plenty in the lockyer and it's an important win for him so he should continue to go up from here" 

 

Pizarro has been a model of consistency in his 6 career starts, never finishing out of the top two and notching over $200,000 in prize money to date. He was purchased from the Vinery Stud Draft at the Inglis Premier Yearling sale and is raced by Champion Thoroughbreds 1 syndicate, Greenwich Stud Pty Ltd, Mr D H Long, Mr G C Green, Mperezive Racing, Mr P A King, Mr P J Dunn, Mr D C Harrop, Mr Z H Davis, JackJ5 Racing, Mr D J Winnell, Mr A M S Lewis, Mr G Seto, 1 in 5 2020 Club, Mr J O'Mahoney, Tunbison Racing.
