Supernormal scored the second win of his career when saluting in the 1300m The Mission Breeder Bonus Challenge @ Aquis Class 1 Handicap. Starting from an inside barrier, jockey Brad Stewart was quick to use his early gate speed and strode straight to the front. From there it was a bit of a procession, with Brad rating him perfectly and running away in the home straight to win by a healthy margin.
"It was great to win another race with this guy and for Neville Bell. He had a couple of jump outs, really pleased us in those, so he was pretty much spot on for this race. We are also very happy to bring our horses across the border to race and with this fellow being a BOBS horse it is good to get the bonus. Andy Kermond (stable foreman) and the team at Eagle Farm as doing a good job with the horses there, so a lot of the credit must go to them. We think there are more wins in store for this fellow and at this stage we will more than likely allow him to work through the grades and build further confidence." Commented Chris Meagher
