The Poly Track at the Sunshine Coast was the venue for another Team Cornish success when Bold Ransom chalked up his first career success in a strong first-up effort which saw him account for the best of his opposition by a clearcut 3.80 length margin in a Maiden Plate over 1000m on October 23.

The Greg Cornish trained Bold Ransom had finished either second or third in five of his previous eight starts and he showed enough improvement fresh after a four month break from race action for him to salute with ease.

It took a Jasmine Cornish a couple of hundred metres to ease Bold Ransom (the $2.60 second favourite) into the lead from barrier six (in a field of seven runners) and the chestnut son of Real Saga, which his distinctive white blaze, held sway until the home turn where he cornered with a one length advantage over the $81 outsider Pride Of Passion.

Bold Ransom then produced a sustained run in the home straight, dropping Pride Of Passion approaching the 200m mark, from which moment the result was never in doubt.

“It’s all Bold Ransom. He has gone further in front … and Bold Ransom will bolt home,” was race-caller Josh Fleming’s description of the closing stages of the race.
