Promising gelding Big Money (4g Choisir x Lyns' Money, by Humam) has made swift progress in the past 12 months making it back to back stakes wins when taking out the Listed Ramornie Handicap at Grafton on Wednesday.
A tenacious winner at his previous run in the III BRC WJ Healy Stakes at Eagle Farm, Big Money made it look easier this time taking the 1200 metre sprint by three-quarters of a length as favourite.
Trained at Scone by Rod Northam, Big Money has gone from strength to strength and will be tested further against better company in the spring.
A $75,000 Inglis Scone Yearling Sale purchase from the Middlebrook Valley Lodge draft, Big Money has won seven races and been second four times in 11 starts $344,160 in prizemoney.
Bred by Phil Gunter, who shares in his ownership, Big Money is the third and final foal of Lyn’s Money, who died in 2009.
A good metropolitan winner of eight races and over $160,000 in prizemoney, Lyn’s Money came from the family of Perth stakes-winner Lynsted Lad.
