NOTEBOOK & BOWMAN ON THE BOARD
Feb 21, 2020
Four year old Written Tycoon mare, Notebook broke her Maiden at Warrnambool yesterday to give young gun trainer Daniel Bowman his first winner in ATB colours.
Starting $8, she was a convincing winner of the Middy's Data & Electrical Maiden Plate over 1400m, courtesy of a lovely Zac Spain ride.
For both the owners in the mare and Bowman the win was a welcome relief.
Notebook, who formerly raced as Tycoon Griffo under trainer Robbie Griffiths, has been knocking on the door with consistent efforts since relocating to Bowman's base at Wangoom near Warrnambool.
The drop back from 1700m to 1400m and a little freshen-up was the key to the win, it was a training plan well executed after Spain hinted after her last start fourth at Geelong.
Hopefully the mare can now continue to improve with the confidence gained from this win.
For Bowman and his hard working team who have trained a couple of 'slow' ATB gallopers in the past, we hope this is the first of many winners.
Congratulations to her owners ML Abell, JB Stokes, Diabolical, MJ Byrne, P Battersby, Mrs KL Dunstan, MJ Eastmure, JACL Racing, BJ De Jong, SCG Racing Pty Ltd, CE Crawford, Ms JM Mahoney, DJ Dunstan, Placidark Racing, Prosen Racing.
