Bohika, one of four winners for the stable on Boxing Day, is lucky to be alive let alone racing. Twice he's almost died because of illness and has been nursed back to health by the stable. He originally started his career in New Zealand winning his first race, a Three-Year-Old Maiden at Otaki in August 2007. His owners were then offered to sell him but they knocked it back. After four more wins at New Plymouth (twice), Ellerslie and Foxton, Bohika was sent to Australia to be trained by Darren Weir, a long-time friend of owner Ivor Edwards. He races the gelding with Noel George, his brother Bruce, sister Di Tyzack, Brendan Dravitzki and his wife Sandy who originally trained Bohika in NZ. On Boxing Day he treated his rivals with contempt leading all the way in a 1250m Rating 94 at Morphettville. Just over 40 minutes earlier there, the stable won with Gotta Keep Cool. Both horses arrived home on Friday morning and provided they have taken no ill effects from the trip, they will back up at Flemington on Saturday. Also on Boxing Day, the stable won with Western Rebel at Nhill and Lethal Gal (Kerang).
