Plenty happening at Hancox Bloodstock in recent weeks and we have been very happy with our July results.
The Hancox Racing No.7. Team were out in force at Flemington on 8 July to cheer on URBAN RULER who ran favourite in the Silver Bowl Final over 1600m. It was a gallant effort to run second, carrying topweight of 60kgs (giving 5.5kgs to the winner) - he was caught in the shadows of the post and the grey has now gone to the paddock for a well earned break having recorded 5 wins, a second and a third and $195,000 from 13 starts.
At Canberra last Friday TOKEN OF LOVE found her right form to lead all the way and win over 1750m on the Acton Track giving 4kg claimer Patrick Scorse his second win for the day. TOL is a bonny mare for her connections with 19 runs for 5 wins, three seconds and four thirds. She has banked over $110,000 a good return on her $8,000 purchase price.
FIRE AGATE and AMBASSADOR LAD both ran well at Geelong on Sunday and MOSSBELLE won over 1300m on the synthetic at Geelong on Tuesday 18th with Craig Newitt giving her a gun ride – another Hancox Racing no.7. member she has raced only 5 times for a win a second and two third placings.
On Wednesday at Doomben the well named JOHNNY WHITESOX was an impressive 2YO winner for trainer Chris Munce. At his only other start he was a solid second and made the necessary improvement this week to the delight of a big group of owners Australia wide.
“Johnny” was winner number 338 for Hancox Bloodstock P/L – and those horses have won 1182 races and over $18 million in prizemoney.
A quiet weekend.
AMBASSADOR LAD AND FIRE AGATE will run at Sandown on Wednesday.
