Double for the Bond Camp
Leading trainers Greg and Skye Bond completed a double at Gloucester Park on Friday night when Ryan Warwick drove promising New Zealand-bred four-year-old Infatuation to an all-the-way victory in the 1730m Worldwide Printing Pace.
The Bonds had won earlier in the program with Rebel With a Grin, driven by Dylan Egerton-Green.
Warwick had to defy an early challenge for the lead from the $3.90 second favourite Cyclone Banner and then dictated terms in front, with Cyclone Banner working hard without cover. The final quarters whizzed by in 28.6sec. and 28.3sec. and Infatuation, the $1.30 favourite, rated a smart 1.54.5.
Infatuation raced four times in New Zealand for one win and three seconds and his WA record stands at 13 starts for nine wins and one placing.
