Who Shot Thebarman impresses..
Boss likes Kiwi stayer's style
Caulfield and Melbourne Cup hopeful Who Shot Thebarman impressed his champion Melbourne jockey Glen Boss with the style of his first Australian victory.
The Auckland Cup winner opened his account in his third
appearance for Chris Waller with a stylish win under 60kg at
Flemington on Saturday.
"I thought it was very impressive, especially the last hundred metres," Boss said.
"He was getting away from them with every bound and there was some quality opposition behind him. It wasn't an ordinary Saturday 2000-metre event."
Who Shot Thebarman is 48th in the Caulfield Cup ballot order with 51.5kg and weights for the Melbourne Cup to be released on Tuesday.
Waller's Melbourne stable representative Justine Hales was also taken by the win of the lightly raced six-year-old.
"He's entered for the cups so I'd assume they will try to head that way," she said.
