Lightning Thoroughbreds and the Kolivos Family are having a great run with their horses lately. Bob (Pierro/Bobine USA) followed the trend by taking out the HRC Motel Maiden Plate at Hawkesbury, Thursday 10 September 2020 over 1800m.

He jumped well but was eased back by his rider, taking it steady in the heavy going (Track Rated Heavy 9). He ‘bobbed’ along, just worse than mid-field until the turn, where he came wide, finding the better going. Bob then joined Overthink (So You Think/Holy Moly) contesting for the lead. It was a two-horse battle all the way down the long straight at Hawkesbury, with Bob eventually getting the job done on the line, all credit to vigorous urging by jockey Tommy Berry.

Congratulations to Greg, Donna, Alexander and of course, Bob.
