SO SI BON Gr3 Aurie’s Star WIN A Dynamic Result

13 Aug 19

SO SI BON had never won first up in five previous preparations, but the talented horse changed all that at Flemington last Saturday when powering clear to win the Group 3 VRC Aurie's Star Handicap over 1200 metres.

Fresh and ready to fire the Hayes-Dabernig combination, the 6yo settled well back in the run for jockey Luke Nolen and surged to the line to win by a length, taking his overall career to 38 starts: 3 wins, 11 placings prizemoney in excess of $716,000.

So Si Bon

So Si Bon had earned a “bad boy” reputation early-on but since being gelded and changing to the Lindsay Park stables, he's started to deliver on the promise he's always shown.

"He is starting to put together a profile fitting of a horse that he probably once promised to be” said Luke Nolen.

"Horses don't lose ability but you have got to find a way to get it out of them in different ways.

"I know he had a bit of a tag on him but he goes OK for me."

A $250,000 Inglis Easter purchase for trainer Robbie Laing from the Newgate Farm draft before being transferred to Hayes, So Si Bon is one of 2 winners from former smart stakes winning juvenile Black Minx.

The result has special interest for the team at Dynamic Syndications.
