Bop It becomes second winner for Misu Bond

FRESHMAN sire Misu Bond added to his tally on Wednesday when Bop It made the most of his previous experience to score in the 6f maiden at Carlisle.

The colt, who showed distinct promise on his debut at York in May, is trained by Misu Bond's former handler Bryan Smart and is the second British and Irish winner for his sire following Pint Size's victory at Redcar earlier this month.

"How he hasn't won before now I do not know," said the winning trainer afterwards. "He has been a little bit too free in his two previous races and today the priority was to get him dropped in and switched off. I think he is pretty useful."

Misu Bond, a son of Danehill Dancer who struck twice at Listed level, stands at Hedgeholme Stud for £1,500.

Bop It is bred to be quick as a three-parts brother to Redcar Two-year-old Trophy winner Ladies Are Forever, who ranthird in the Land O'Burns Fillies' Stakes at Ayr on Saturday, and the smart sprint handicapper Hoof It. Both those horses are by Monsieur Bond, who, like Misu Bond, was a son of Danehill Dancer campaigned by Reg Bond.

Bop It is the fifth foal bred by Bond out of the Danetime mare Forever Bond and was knocked down for £40,000 to Oliver St Lawrence at last year's DBS Premier Sale.
