Nic boss at Flemington

Trainers Tony & Calvin McEvoy produced another black type Group winner when two-year-old Bossy Nic proved much too good for her rivals at Flemington on Saturday, March 25.

Bossy Nic ($8.50), ridden by Dean Holland, won the $200,000 Group 3 TBV Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m), eased down, by 2-1/2 lengths from Lovazou ($21) with Treasurway ($16) a head away third.

The McEvoys took the daughter of Nicconi to Adelaide for her debut on March 13 to contest the Listed Cinderella Stakes (1050m), and after a slow start, she flashed home to run second beaten a long neck.

Bossy Nic showed the benefit of that run jumping better at Flemington and always being in a prominent position down the straight 1200 metres.

Holland pushed the filly between runners approaching the 200-metre mark and she surged through to put a break on her rivals and win comfortably.

It was the first win for the McEvoy training partnership but Tony McEvoy won the race in 2003 and 2004 with Living Spirit and One World when in charge of the Lindsay Park training operation.

Trainer Calvin McEvoy revealed some late ownership additions were enjoying quick success.

“She actually was quite tough for us to syndicate,” McEvoy said.

“We held on to her for a bit longer than we like to before taking her to the races.

“That whole process put her back a touch.

“But she has matured all the way through, and she is only going to get better like the Nicconi’s do.

Bossy Nic cost $190,000 as a yearling at the Victorian Inglis Sales, and with today’s Group 3 victory it has made her a very valuable filly.

“She has been a filly that has been very professional,” McEvoy said.

“ She is a beautiful filly and always shown us she is a cut above average.

“She put the writing on the wall in Adelaide, and with a ;little bit more luck, she probably would have won there.

“Today she stamped herself as a nice filly.

“Dean (Holland) is under the impression she will love a bit further but I think at the moment 1200 metres is perfect.

“It is very exciting for all connections to win on a big day, and also a credit to the staff.”

Bossy Nic may now be aimed at stakes races during the May Adelaide carnival with races like the G3 SA Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) on May 13 and the G3 National Stakes (1200m) a week later, under consideration.
