Bach ready for $17,500 mile event at Melton’s Saturday meeting

posted in: News, Uncategorized

New Zealand pacer Bach will line up for his second start in Australia when he contests a $17,500 feature at Melton on Saturday.

The five-year-old gelding crossed the Tasman to settle at the Kyle Marshall Racing stables ahead of the $100,000 Decron Gold Cup in mid-February.

Midway through the race, he locked wheels with a rival, ending the chances of both.

Bach will know his way around the Melton track, having won a five-horse barrier trial there on January 30, over the same 1720m distance he’ll race on Saturday.
