Three Bridges Pinhook wins Again
Saluting at Canterbury for the David Payne stable on Wednesday was four year-old gelding Doc Holliday, a $180,000 Inglis Premier purchase for Nordic Breeding and Racing from the Three Bridges Thoroughbreds draft.
Allowed to roll forward by Glynn Schofield, Doc Holliday travelled smoothly throughout in second place and fought on strongly to win the 2700 metre staying test by a half neck under 60 kg.
Doc Holliday has won five of 16 starts earning over $108,000 in prizemoney.
Doc Holliday is yet another highly successful pinhook for Three Bridges Thoroughbreds, bought by Paul Willetts for just $22,000 at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale.
He is from stakes-placed Danehill (USA) mare Fiammarosa, a full sister to Group I winner Shinzig and stakes-winner Strada from Group I STC Coolmore Classic winner Shindig.
