Nothing To Lose (USA) is again the talk among racing circles with another first start winner at Ipswich last Friday.
Without any previous trial form, I’m Busted (Nothing To Lose ex Myban Girl NZ) started as a five dollar chance from barrier five in the Royal Mail Hotel Maiden over 1100 metres. He raced wide for most of the journey although when asked by jockey Daniel Griffin he showed good acceleration to claim victory. I’m Busted is owned by the Pitt family who also race several other of Nothing To Lose’s progeny, most notably the very smart galloper, Venture On. Like Venture On, this gelding is trained by Brain Smith who is having good success with the six Nothing to Lose progeny that he has in his stable.
I’m Busted’s win comes 4 days after Epic Terra’s dominate 5.8 length win at Murwillumbah last Monday. Both Epic Terra and Venture On have accepted for a 3YO QTIS Handicap over 1400m at the Sunshine Coast on Wednesday which will be a great battle.
Nothing To Lose is consistently getting winners and placegetters in the provincial and metropolitan areas from only 22 individual runners. He has demonstrated that he is capable of producing a 2YO or 3YO winner from 1000m to 2150m.
Queensland’s Willowbend Stud stands Nothing To Lose who was an exceptional American racehorse. Only racing on turf, he won the Group 1 Shadwell Turf Mile by 4.5 lengths and also won several Group 2 and Group 3 races.
He defeated horses of the highest calibre, including Honor In War, now a resident stallion in Australia, who in turn defeated Takeover Target in the Group 2 Villiers Stakes. Nothing To Lose’s record stands at 15 starts for 6 wins, 3 seconds and 1 third winning $1.1m in prizemoney.
