God’s Own keeps piling on the winners and one of the best season would have to be Robert Heathcote’s speedy 4YO, San Jose, who notched up an all-the-way victory in the BMAG Plate over 1400m at Eagle Farm on Wednesday.
There was a lot to like about the way, San Jose, toughed it out to the wire and he’s been showing plenty of class this time in. Resuming at the Sunshine Coast in July, he was beaten a neck before running second, beaten a lip, at Eagle Farm on 1 August.
Only failing by just over half a length at the Farm again on 22 August, it was little wonder that San Jose was sent out favourite for Wednesday.
San Jose is out of the Filante mare, Tara Diva (giving him a double up of Star Way) and hails from the family of Rendoo and Chief Headhunter.
