At Hastings in New Zealand, Rich Hill Stud's 5-time Gr1-winner and champion New Zealand first season sire of 2015-16 Jimmy Choux (Thorn Park) added a stakes-winner when undefeated 3YO gelding Bostonian (Jimmy Choux-Keepa Cheval, by Keeper) scored by a tiny margin for trainer Tony Pike in the $50,000 Listed El Roca-Sir Colin Meads Trophy (1200m) for 3YOs. Defeating fellow geldings I Got You (Hard Spun) & Irish Flame (Zed), Bostonian took his record to 3 wins from as many starts for $50,000 earnings. Bostonian is bred to be special. His dam Keepa Cheval is a half-sister to Gr1 winner Mufhasa.
