    THERE is a lot to be learnt from defeat and Nathan Jack certainly utilised his to claim victory in last night’s $175,000 Alabar Bloodstock Nutrien Equine Final in Bendigo.

    After leading with The Bigboss and being outsprinted by Bay Of Biscay during a series heat Jack made a slight tweak to his tactics in the decider, which paid dividends as the two-year-old crushed his much-hyped rival by 17 metres.

    In the qualifier, The Bigboss was given a ‘breather’ during the middle stages, but that was far from the case this time around.

    After finding the front from barrier six, Jack carved out solid quarters which saw The Bigboss rate 1:54 over 2150 metres.

    While it was there for everyone to see, the Lemnos trainer-driver played down his role in the result.

    “I think anyone could have just went out there and went as fast as they could for as far as they could so I can’t sort of take much credit there, but it’s a big credit to all the team at home,” Jack said.

    “He was just a great looking horse and he was a Bettors (Delight) and although he was very fat at the time, he was just a great looking horse and he caught our eye, which is why we bought him.

    “He’s been hard to get going and he was hard to get gaited, but the penny’s dropping now.

    “Josh Turnbull broke him in and gave him his first prep, and then he came to me. He did a lot more galloping than pacing for a long time.”

    Boasting three wins and two seconds from five starts, The Bigboss will now be aimed at the rich Vicbred Super Series.
