The Bus broke back into the winners circle and completed a big day for owner Grant Hatton in winning at Albion Park on Saturday night (Aug 10).
Sent forward from gate three by driver Guy Chapple, The Bus made his way to the lead inside the opening 800m and was in control from that point, rating 1:56.0 (2138m) and home in 1:57.1 his final mile.
After a rocky run of form wince winning at Menangle in March, The Bus looks set to kick into gear in Queensland for the Mark Jones-Aaron Goadsby stable.
Hatton bagged his second winner of the day as an owner after Willison (3g Bettor’s Delight – Classical Art) secured his maiden win at Gore in the hands of Sam Ottley.
The Australian sale purchase looks in for a good season after missing much of his two-year-old year due to immaturity.
Jones and Goasdsby went back-to-back at Albion Park with The Bus after Getarattleon won his first start on the track for the team on Friday night (Aug 9), successful in the hands of Grant Dixon and rating a very respectable 1:56.7 (2138m).
