Smart MAJOR IN ART gelding Im The Boss lifted his stake tally over the $100,000 mark when he captured the Group 3 $30,000 Cobram Pacing Cup on Sunday (January 7).
The win comnpleted a siring double for MAJOR IN ART, who was earlier represented by Ismaha, a winner of a Vicbred Platinum Mares’ Sprint Championship heat in 1:57.4.
Im The Boss, who started from the pole, led in the early part before handing.
Tipped the outside on straightening, the six-year-old finished resolutely to nail the leader in the shadows of the post.
The mile rate for the gruelling 2678 metres was a slick 1:56.2.
He clocked 55.5 for the last 800.
Im The Boss has now won 15 races.
The gelding is out of a mare by Apache’s Fame.
