Bill The Boxer wins again
Another knockout blow was landed by Bill The Boxer at Morphettville on Friday, December 17.
The Tony & Calvin McEvoy-trained four-year-old remained unbeaten with his tough win in the Kerry Carn Memorial (1200m).
Bill The Boxer brought up a Morphettville double for the trainers, and also jockey Barend Vorster, having combined earlier to win with Race Against Time.
Sent out the $3.70 favourite, the gelding was caught wide but showed great heart to gather in the leader Tough Lassie ($10) to win by a length with Betta Eddie ($9.5), 1-1/2 lengths away third.
Named after the grandson of McEvoy Mitchell principal Wayne Mitchell, Bill The Boxer won on heavy ground at Dunkeld on debut and loved the good 4 rating at Morphettville.
Trainer Tony McEvoy was impressed with the win of Bill The Boxer.
“He was tough today and did a really good job,” McEvoy said.
“He was three deep, but gee, he chased hard.
“It was a fantastic win.
“We only paid about $22,000 for him but he has been really difficult with his soundness.
“His bones have been aching, so we have just had to wait with him.
“Wayne has been very patient but it was a good result today.
“He made a lot of mistakes when he won at Dunkeld on the heavy track on debut but did a really good job.
“He will continue to be a consistent Saturday galloper.”
