Bajan Lands A Plunge At Morphettville
Aug 05, 2018
They were screaming all around the country as the last at Morphettville produced a barnstorming last to first victory that filled the pockets of plenty of Team Grand owners and supporters.
With the affectionately known `Ragin`Bajan looking well placed by David Jolly, Grand Syndicates Racing Manager, Sam Lyons sent the `Grand Weekly Update` out on race morning, telling readers not once, but twice to make sure they were on. And `Barry`didn`t let them down, giving them a good old shellacking under a peach by Kayla Crowther.
Crunched in from as long as $6 to sSP at $3.40, the $9,000 son of Barbados took up his customary role a long last behind a good tempo, with Kayla keeping him out of trouble and then asking him to slowly improve from the 700m, stalking the group and looking the winner a long, long way out. As they straightened it was all over with Bajan dropping on them in a few strides and putting a gap on the field, proving far to good for his opposition.
It takes Team Grand`s first SA syndicated racehorse`s earnings past the $60,000 mark with plenty more to come it would seem.
