Hugh Bowman took riding honours at Canterbury on Wednesday with a winning double.

Bowman’s two winners came via a beautifully-bred mare and a three-year-old filly which cost $1.1 million as a yearling.

He started the day teaming up with in-form trainer Anthony Cummings and Messenger in the Freeway Hotel Artarmon Handicap and the half-sister to Caulfield Guineas winner God’s Own started the punters day off on the right foot.

Well supported into a $2.20 favourite, Messenger proved too good for another blueblood, Seventh Reason, the half-brother to More Joyous which cost $2 million at the 2007 Magic Millions sale.

“We got a lovely run from the barrier [one] and she really dug deep when she needed to,” Bowman said.

Bowman the brought up his double with a patient ride aboard the impressive Jack Denham-trained Sunday’s Choice ($5.50).

The Fuller family which also owns the dual Group I winner Metal Bender race Sunday’s Choice, a daughter of Redoute’s Choice, and she defied a slowly run race to record a narrow but impressive victory.

“There is certainly a lot of upside to this horse,” Bowman said.

The other highlight of the day was the strong first-up win by Lucky Leak for the Gary Portelli stable.

Lucky Leak ($4.20 eq fav) had plenty of fans in betting and he didn’t disappoint his supporters, charging down the centre of the Canterbury straight to claim the Freeway Hot Fridays Handicap.
