Show A Star shines in Mile for Bjorn Baker

Show A Star has lifted Bjorn Baker’s spirits with a win to compensate for some frustrating results on his home track at Warwick Farm.

The six-year-old gelding proved too strong for his rivals in the Bowness Stud Mile to record his eighth career win on Saturday, and second in a row.

Show A Star, the $2.10 favourite, controlled the tempo and when briefly challenged on the turn home, he kicked clear to beat Supply And Demand ($2.90) to the line by 1-1/4 lengths.

Testashadow ($4.80) was 2-3/4 lengths adrift in third.

“I’m lucky I’ve got a ready made horse and he did a really good job, I’ve underrated this guy a little bit,” Baker said.

“It’s been an up-and-down day so any Saturday win is a big win in my world.”

Baker had six runners, with Egyptian Symbol the only other placegetter after she finished second to Prompt Response in the Group Two Breeders Classic.
