THE Warrnambool-trained Dodging Bullets took out an exciting $100,000 bet365 Kyneton Cup last Wednesday witnessed by a big crowd.
Trained by Symon Wilde, and well ridden by Daniel Moor, the $2.80 favourite grabbed the $4.20 second elect, Moonovermanhattan, on the line with the unlucky Grand Dreamer ($5) third.
It was back-to-back wins for the ultra-consistent six-year-old gelded son of Dash For Cash and Young Love who was an impressive winner at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate eve.
“The hard track and with them slowing the pace mid-race, I don’t think it suited him but he was too good on the day,” Wilde said.
“Maybe a race like the Ballarat Cup (November 25) might be ideal for him.
“He was a $50,000 horse at the Melbourne Premier sale and he is repaying his owners now, that is for sure,” he said.
Dodging Bullets has now won six races with 10 minor placings, earning $422,200 in prizemoney.
