Winning Accord breaks through
Sep 01, 2015
Winning Accord made a good impression in his Queensland debut on Sunday, with a solid win in the Colts, Gelding and Entires Maiden Plate over 1200m at the Gold Coast.
The former Adelaide galloper joined the Bruce Hill stable in April. Although he was a maiden he did have strong form, which included an unlucky forth in the Group 3 Sires Produce Stakes at Morphettville, at his last start before heading north.
He had trialled well leading into Sunday's race and started a short priced favourite. Jumping form barrier six, the three year old enjoyed a nice run siting just off the leader. On straightening jockey Matthew McGuren asked him for an effort and he proved too good, pulling away to score by just under a length.
Trainer Bruce Hill was thrilled with the result and will just see how the gelding comes through the run before deciding where he heads next.
