Tasmanian bred 4 year old BANCA MO ,by Armidale Sire TOUGH SPEED (USA), won a few admirers with his gutsy 8 length win at Flemington on Saturday. Racing in the apprentices handicap over 1800m , and ridden by Ben Knobel, BANCA MO made light work of his rivals to race away and win by over 8 lengths. Trained by David and Scott Brunton, and raced by Tasmanian Mandy Gunn, BANCA MO had been a model of consistency with 2 good seconds in Melbourne at his last 2 starts. Scott Brunton believes BANCA MO will develop into a quality Cups horse of the future. He was purchased at the Tasmanian Yearling Sale for $3,000!
