Indian Pacific became the latest stakes winner bred and sold by Bowness Stud when landing the Listed WATC RS Crawford Stakes (1000m) at Ascot in Western Australia.

A 4-year-old son of Zoustar trained by Neville Parnham, Indian Pacific was having his first start since July and enhanced a brilliant winning strike rate which now reads six wins and two thirds from just eight starts.

Indian Pacific was a member of Bowness Stud’s 2018 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale draft where he was knocked-down to Parnhams Racing for $110,000. His latest victory saw him take his earnings to $222,560.

Indian Pacific is the second stakes horse produced by Rosarino (by Perugino), herself the winner of the Listed VRC Talindert Stakes as a 2-year-old. The second-dam of Saturday’s Crawford Stakes winner is the Group 3 VRC Merson Cooper Stakes winner Rosa’s Joy (by Rory’s Jester).

The maiden stakes race victory of Indian Pacific came just a week after the Group 2 MRC Herbert Power Stakes victory of fellow Bowness Stud-bred and -sold Chapada, and two weeks after the Group 1 Epsom Handicap placing of Funstar, another Bowness Stud sales graduate.
