Bomb Proof (Society Rock) wins on debut at York, taking the British Stallion Studs EBF Novices Stakes for Jeremy Noseda and owners Charles Fox & The Shalfleet Partners.
Ridden by Frankie Dettori, the colt had to overcome an unfavourable draw here and was positioned behind the early leaders before asserting himself with a furlong to run, eventually winning by 1 1/4 lengths. His victory makes it two winners from two runners for EBS yearling purchases this season.
After the race Dettori said “That was very professional, he jumped well and showed good cruising speed and quickened well, he would suit a race like the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot”.
Bomb Proof was purchased for 100,000gns from Book 3 of the 2018 Tattersalls October Yearling Sales. For a list of upcoming sales click the link below.
