‘Bobby Benzine’ finally showed us the potential that he’s promised for so long when he demolished his opponents to win his first race at Northam last Thursday. Having just his 11th start in a race, he jumped smartly in the 2200m event and was never headed-eventually winning by a cushy 3 1/2 lengths.
It’s taken quite a while for the ‘penny to drop’ with Bobby, and to be fair to him, things didn’t really go his way early on his career, so for him to put it all together and reward us all with such an outstanding win (any win by 3 1/2 lengths is outstanding in my opinion!) was really something special.
There looks to be plenty of depth to this horse, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he were to take the next step and develop into a city class stayer..
