Harness Racing: Bondi Lockdown strikes again

Aaron Dunn believes he has finally got a Grand Circuit horse on his hands after Bondi Lockdown showed his class at Tabcorp Park Melton at the weekend.

Bondi Lockdown won the third Group 1 of his career when taking out the DNR Logistics 4YO Bonanza in impressive style and Dunn is excited to see what the future holds.

All-the-way win

In his latest assignment Bondi Lockdown got away well from barrier six to quickly take the lead and there was no looking back from that point as he blew away his rivals to claim the Group 1 sprint.

Bondi Lockdown ran a mile rate of 1:51.6min with quarters of 27.8sec, 30.1sec, 27.6sec and 27.0sec to beat Beyond Delight by 2.4metres.

Kimble finished in third place with Rock N Roll Doo in fourth but the race belonged to Bondi Lockdown who is being touted as a Grand Circuit horse.

His other Group 1 wins include the VHRC Caduceus 3YO Classic and Vicbred Super Series 3YO Colts and Geldings Final and he has earned connections almost $300,000.

Targeting the top

"Once Mattie (Craven with Kimble) came off my back, he just knuckled down and he was home. I gave my first wave in a Group 1 win tonight," Dunn said after the win.

"I’ve never had a Grand Circuit horse. I had a horse Dee Dees Dream, who was a good little horse but just was that second tier. Hopefully he’s going to the top."

The win also means Bondi Lockdown can now head to the $250,000 Chariots Of Fire to be raced at Tabcorp Park Menangle on 19th February.
