Bilt Leica breaks through

Dec 20, 2011

Bilt Leica recorded his first win on Saturday by taking out the Corestaff Mining Colts and Geldings Maiden Handicap over 1400m at the Gold Coast.

Having his tenth race start, the always consistent Latarmiss gelding was positioned up on the speed by apprentice Tegan Harrison before she made her move at the 600m mark slipping away from the field to beat home Skate On By by a length with third place getter Brave Palatinsk a further 5 1/2 lengths behind.

Trainer Bruce Hill will look for a suitable Class 1 event for the four year old's next start and is confident he will get over further ground in the future.
