The Bostonian Wins the 2019 Kingsford Smith Cup

Only a fortnight after winning the Doomben 10,000, four-year-old gelding The Bostonian has made it back-to-back Group 1 wins for trainer Tony Pike claiming Saturday’s Kingsford Smith Cup (1300m) at whopping double-digit odds.

As punters flocked towards the likes of Trekking ($5.50) and Dubious ($8.50), the now two-time Group 1 winner flew under the radar at $11.00 to keep his perfect 5/5 Queensland record intact.

Jockey Michael Cahill found himself with the inside position on Godolphin-trained three-year-old Encryption down the straight. The Bostonian moved up over the final furlong to fly home and win comfortably ahead of surprise second place-getter Princess Posh.

An elated Tony Pike said after the race that he fully intends to lineup in next fortnight’s $1.5 million Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on June 8, while the champion trainer also paid credit to Cahill for the gun ride.

“The horse has reached up out of the gates and he can put himself in the race which helps. He didn’t have to do a lot of work to get across either. Outstanding ride by Michael, they just seem to have a great association together” Cahill said after the race.

“Two weeks to the Stradbroke so we’ll just keep ticking him over now, very pleased. Also wrapped for the old horse Endless Drama, he’s run a ripper fifth or sixth.”

The pace was on early as The Bostonian settled nicely just behind the speed while third place-getter Trekking set himself up on the inside rail.

The pair currently head the Stradbroke Handicap as the only runners at single-digit odds.
