Barigan Boy Claims Miracle Morphettville Win Without Irons

Barigan Boy has proven he can win under just about any circumstance, after claiming victory at Morphettville despite rider Omer Ay losing his irons.

Ay lost one of his irons at the start and was forced to ride Barigan Boy bareback in the $35,000 Boag’s Draught Rating 86 Handicap in Adelaide.

With the jockey given no means to steady Barigan Boy, the galloper shot to the lead and was two lengths in front of the field at the home turn.

Omer Ay has led Barigan Boy to an impressive victory despite losing his irons at the beginnng of the race at Morphettville on Saturday.

Race favourite Money Bags fought on well down the outside and looked the winner, however, Barigan Boy fought off his competitor to win the race by a half neck margin.

The Secret Savings gelding was safe from disqualification after Ay weighed in 0.1kgs under his allotted weight of 56 kilograms, even without the extra iron.

Barigan Boy has won nine of his 46 race starts and has earned more than $185,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

The seven-year-old is trained at Murray Bridge by Grant Young and has had the majority of his runs at South Australia’s Morphettville Racecourse.
