BonnevalIt Keeps Getting Better

We had a number of nice horses step out during the past 12 months and we thought it was appropriate to do a little “round up” of the 2017-18 season from a Westbury perspective.

Best Stayer

Daytona Red

Went from winning his maiden to winning the NZ St Leger, can only get better this season.
Best Weight for Age Performer Bonneval Outstanding racemare and the only New Zealand trained horse to win a Group 1 in Australia in 2017-18.
Best 4YO Performer Bonneval Winner of the Dato Tan Chin Nam Gr.2 and Underwood Stakes Gr.1.
Best Miler Romancer Talented galloper who was unlucky in Concorde Handicap Gr.3 before running third in Easter Handicap Gr.2.
Best Sprinting Performer Julius One of the sprinting finds of last season winning both the Darley Plate & Concorde Handicap.
Best Three-Year-Old Win Beauty Win Posted a most impressive record in Hong Kong last season with 4 wins and 2 seconds from 7 starts.
Best Two-Year-Old Peaceful Stakes winning 2YO who can only get better this season.
Best Overseas Performance Bonneval Fantastic effort to defeat Hartnell, Gailo Chop, Single Gaze, & Black Heart Bart in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes.
