BARGANNON brought up the stable’s first win of the 2022-23 racing season with a typically tough performance at Doomben.
A veteran of 37 starts, the 8YO proved that age is no barrier to success when he saluted by the narrowest of margins in the Benchmark 85 Handicap (1350m).
One of the most versatile horses in the stable, BARGANNON has raced over a wide range of distances and had been running well without getting his head in front, but registered the eighth win of his career under jockey Jag Guthmann-Chester.
In a blanket finish, the son of Elzaam got his head down right on the line to take his career prizemoney earnings past the $250,000 mark.
Congratulations to his owners: Mr S P Mayer, Mrs M M Mayer, Mr M D Keating, Mr S J Miller and Mr K Cleghorn.
