After 77 tries at winning a Group Race and 7 seconds and 8 more placings , Morphettville trainer John Hyam broke through last Saturday when $31 chance Last Bullet took out the Group 3 Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) at his home track.
Unfancied after a well beaten debut fifth a fortnight earlier, the High Chaparral colt gave apprentice Siggy Carr the first leg of a running double.
A $200,000 purchase at last year’s Premier Melbourne yearling sales, Last Bullet will now be spelled ahead of a Caulfield Guineas campaign.
