Bonjour Wins NZ Merial Mile

Monday, 17th September 2007

In New Zealand, 7YO gelding Bonjour (Frenchpark-Buyers Dilemma, by Full On Aces) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the NZ$100,000 Gr3 Merial Metric Mile (1600m) at Awapuni. Bonjour (ridden by Chris Johnson for trainer Karen Zimmerman) scored by a neck from fast-finishing fellow 7YO gelding Floydeboy (Mellifont-Fleche D'Or, by Northerly Native) who won this race last year, with a further long-neck to Australian-bred 7YO gelding Spin Around (Spinning World-Be Yourself, by Noalcoholic). Bonjour now has 8 wins (7 on the Awapuni track) 7 placings (including January's Gr1 Thorndon Mile over 1600m at Trentham) from 26 starts.
