Two weeks ago Racing Victoria Stewards fined Glen Boss for his standing in the irons as they crossed the line when he won the Gr 1 Cox Plate on Sir Dragonet.

Boss defiantly defended his actions that day saying the sport needed something like this at this time in history, to cheer people up and cheer about.

“I will not stop showing my emotion when I win big races” he said. “To fine me was wrong to be frank.” And he didn’t hold back in the Gr 1 race today either.

So when he dashed BIVOUAC (Exceed And Excel-Dazzler) past Nature Strip with 150m to go, he looked left and right then stood high in his irons again.

It was a deliberate, and defiant thumbing his nose at the Stewards.

But his joy was palpable.

He patted the horse on the head prior to crossing the line when Bivouac was a mile clear in the Gr 1 Darley Classic over 1200m.

After crossing the line there were quite a few fist pumps as well. He wanted this win and he loved it.

Bossy came back to scale all smiles as he does when he lands a Gr 1 winner.

“I’ve ridden some of the best colts Australia has produced over the past 20 years, and this bloke is a dominant colt. He is out here to do a job and he’s doing it.

“He was the best horse in the race with the best form. He’s come here third up and it was very hard to ignore him,” he said.

When asked about the standing high as he and Bivouac neared the post…..

“My knee was cramping so I extended it as I crossed the line. But, seriously, these are very fond memories and when I look back in years to come I want to see that I was enjoying it and appreciative.

“The horse is what we should be marketing. They are great animals.”

Bossy is marketing the sport pretty efficiently too.

But we will see if the RV Stewards react to his defiance.
