Easter Bargains Shine

Response was sold through Andrew and Lasca Bowcock’s Alanbridge Stud draft and is now the winner of two races in four starts for earnings just short of $200,000.
THE MIKADO ($25,000 Easter, 3c Danehill Dancer-Lirico) was an Inglis Race Series Bonus winner last season and broke through for his maiden stakes success when proving too good in the Strada Stakes at Randwick.
The Tim Martin trained colt is also now the winner of $200,000.
