Mighty Boss takes out Guineas

Mighty Boss

Mighty Boss

Mighty Boss has scored a shock win in the A$2 million Gr.1 Caulfield Guineas. 

The Mick Price-trained colt was an emergency for Saturday's 1600m race and gained a start following the scratchings of Summer Passage and Eclair Sunshine.

Mighty Boss got up on the inside to score by a neck in front of Kementari, with the favourite Catchy a length further away in third.

Price parted with NZ$180,000 at New Zealand Bloodstock's 2016 Premier Yearling Sale, to secure the colt out of Curraghmore's draft and was able to keep 10 per cent of the ownership.

"If you look at the horse he's a bit blond and a bit flashy and I thought all the good judges won't be liking that," Price said.

Price always held Guineas ambitions for Mighty Boss right from when successful in a Sale maiden in July.

"He and Tulip were amongst the annual group of yearlings that we chose to bring over from Coolmore to offer in our draft at Karaka,” Curraghmore’s Gordon Cunningham said.

“He was a horse with plenty of natural strength and I was very happy to secure him for our draft.

“I'm delighted for Mick Price who has trained a number of horses from our farm with great success".

Price has trained seven stakes winners sourced from Curraghmore, including fellow Group One winner Velocitea and Alsiter Clark Stakes winner and VRC Derby placegetter Pre Eminence.  -AAP, NZ Racing Desk
