Dubawi Sniper picks them off at Grafton
Apr 03, 2018
Queensland-based Dubawi Sniper continued Team Grand's 2018 purple patch with a strong victory in the Vines @ 139 Handicap (Race 8-1106m) at Grafton today.
The Bruce Hill-trained three-year-old made a successful hit-and-run mission across the northern New South Wales border, holding up to lead at a genuine tempo from barrier one, and fighting off his rivals to pull clear in the straight and score by 1.7 lengths.
Dubawi Sniper, purchased for $8000 at the Adelaide Magic Millions Yearling Sale in 2015, began his career in NSW but has relished the climate change since arriving at the Gold Coast in April last year, winning two and recording six placings from his 16 starts for Bruce Hill. He has now chipped away and banked $54,150 in earnings for connections, with the promise of more to come.
