The Bostonian will contest next week's Group Three Sunshine Coast Guineas after continuing his late winter carnival form

Tough New Zealand galloper The Bostonian will contest next week’s Group Three Sunshine Coast Guineas after continuing his late winter carnival form with another win on Saturday.

Trainer Tony Pike had high hopes for The Bostonian this winter but a series of setbacks meant he didn’t make his Queensland debut until two weeks ago when he won the Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes at Caloundra.

“He drew some bad barriers and then when we were ready to race about five weeks ago we found he had been bitten on the nose by a spider or green ant,” Pike said.

“His nose was up like a football and his temperature went up so we had to scratch him so we could treat him.”

The Bostonian ($3.30) showed his class when he led all he way to beat Chapter and Verse ($13) by 1-3/4 lengths.

Pike believes The Bostonian will have no trouble backing up at the 1600m of the Sunshine Coast Guineas.

“He has won at Caloundra and it was a strong effort today because they have been running the leaders down,” Pike said.

The Bostonian is closely related to multiple Group One winning gelding Mufhasa who raced as King Mufhasa in Australia.
