Benstud winner at Bathurst

Benstud winner at Bathurst


Promising mare Ichiba Newy, a product of Benstud Standardbreds, unwounded a barnstorming finish to post her fifth lifetime success at Bathurst on Wednesday night (July 3).


After being buried four deep on the marker line, the four-year-old finally saw daylight on the home turn and roared home to win by 3.6 metres.


The mile rate for the 1730 metres was 2:00.3 with the final 800 in 57.8.


Ichiba Newy is the fifth foal and fourth winner of the Albert Albert mare Nosotros.
