Nic the boss again

Bossy Nic continues to build an impressive record overcoming a wide draw to score an excellent win at Caulfield on Saturday, June 29.

Despite being caught four wide in the run to the home turn, Bossy Nic sprinted strongly past the 200 metres to win the $150,000 Sportsbet Feed Handicap (1200m).

The three-year-old filly was perfectly placed by trainers Tony & Calvin McEvoy because apart from the excellent first prize of $82,500, she also collected $30,000 in VOBIS Silver bonuses.

Ridden by Damien Lane, Bossy Nic ($4.60) scored by a long neck from Enna’s Dream ($4.20 fav) with Patchouli Dream ($26), two lengths away third.

The filly now has three wins, the last two in a row, and three placings from just 11 starts and picked up $418,325 in stakes.

Bossy Nic began very well from his barrier 11 but Lane found his rivals kicking up inside and was forced to take his medicine and sit wide in the run to the home turn.

The filly established a break past the 200 metres which proved as winning move as she held on from the fast-finishing runner up.

Trainer Tony McEvoy is proud of Bossy Nic.

“She is a willing participant and a lovely filly to be around,” McEvoy said.

“I was very thrilled the owners allowed us to take her down a cog at her last run.

“She hadn’t won for a year and that victory at Mornington pepped her up.

“I think that played a big part in her confidence coming in to today.

“When the predicted wind didn’t arrive, we didn’t mind sitting wide without cover with only the one turn.

“She did a great job, she’s a good filly.”

McEvoy said the trainers would consider backing Bossy Nic up next week in the Listed Creswick Stakes.

“She’s already a Group 3 winner and there is not much else for her.

“I think she runs 1200 metres and that is it. She handles the straight so maybe we run again then give her a spell.”

Damien Lane was impressed by Bossy Nic.

“She was great,” Lane said.

“She stepped well and was able to race in a prominent position.

“We got caught a little wide without cover so she did a bit of work during the middle stages.

“Bossy Nic quickened up well with the big weight.

“Although the runner up got close, I never felt like it was going to catch me.

“A good tough run – she had a bit of class on her rivals.”
