Impressive Ipswich winner The Real Boss is headed to bigger things after giving apprentice Emma Ljung a winning start to a short but action-packed day.
Ljung had only two rides at Ipswich on The Real Boss and Aileach and they won the first two races.
The Real Boss ($1.75) got Ljung off to a good start when he strolled home by nearly three lengths in the The-Year-Old Plate (800m).
It was The Real Boss’s first run since winning in Toowoomba by seven lengths at his first start.
Trainer Tony Sears has a big opinion of The Real Boss who is now headed to city racing.
“The Real Boss can go to the Gold Coast metro race in a fortnight over 900m,” Sears said.
“The owners are from West Australia and are tied up in the mining industry. I have had a lot of horses for them including the more-than-handy I Am Boss.”
“They name all their horses with the word Boss in it. I am glad they have another good horse.”
