Starting the short priced favourite in the 1421m of the B & B Aluminium at Geelong on Thursday, the Heath Conners-trained, Blue Sky Bloodstock yearling purchase BOUNDARY jumped the gates and travelled forward for the in-form Damian Lane.
Restrained to settle behind the leading few, the four-year-old Manhattan Rain mare travelled sweetly in fourth and when the home corner was reached she had something to offer, but just needed to find a gap.
When one eventually appeared to her inside, the Magic Millions graduate darted through to quickly hit the lead.
Just as it looked as if she would win comfortably, the Daryl Brown-trained Caesar’s Revenge came out of the pack and the battle was on.
Not to be denied, Boundary took the win and elevated her earnings past the $100,000 from three wins and three placings from 12 starts, a great return on the $38,000 yearling purchase price from the draft of Millbrook at the 2013 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale.
