Group One for Jimmy Choux's son

Bostonian produced an electrifying performance to win this afternoon's Gr.1 Doomben 10,000 for trainer Tony Pike.

In the hands of Michael Cahill, the four-year-old remained unbeaten in four Queensland appearances when he lifted the title.

The son of former Rich Hill Stud stallion Jimmy Choux made the most of an inside run to dash home to victory.

Raced by breeder Davbid Archer, Bostonian is out of a half-sister to the former two-time New nZealsnd Horse of the Year Mufhasa.

"He began well and we had a good run behind the leaders," Cahill said.

"I had a bit of trouble getting a clear run at the top of the straight and once I got out he finished powerfully in the last 100 metres."

"It's terrific and he's been a very good horse to me.

"He was unbeaten here last winter and he raced well in the big sprints in New Zealand. I rode him work this week and he felt very sharp."

Pike was in New Zealand today and left Bostonian in the care of foreman and Group One winning jockey and trainer Chris McNab.

"We will now probably head straight to the Stradbroke Handicap," he said.

"He is here mainly for it and he is a horse who does race well fresh."
