SEPTEMBER 24, 2016: Bowness Stud resident stallion Bon Hoffa further aligned himself with the Group 1 MRC Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) when Bon Aurum scored a brilliant victory in the 2016 version of the time honoured event — thus emulating his sire’s own victory in 2007.

One of the most coveted 1400-metre contests on the Australian racing calendar, Bon Aurum went in to the latest renewal of the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes as a heavily backed second favourite following an emphatic last start Flemington victory. And the striking chestnut 4-year-old didn’t disappoint.

Beautifully handled by big-race rider Kerrin McEvoy, Bon Aurum was positioned just off the pace throughout the early stages and then produced on the outside of the field when rounding the home turn.
