Simply The Best wins her third FAMIS bonus

Three-year-old filly Simply The Best earned her third FAMIS bonus when she won the Lion Foundation Manawatu Hotel 3yo, 1200m at Foxton on Sunday 11 August.

By Kingdom Bay from Chickero, Simply The Best is raced by her co-breeder John Borich in partnership with Pioneer Racing Ltd, and is prepared by Chris and Colleen Wood at Cambridge. She has now won three of her six starts and race stakemoney of $20,125, plus FAMIS prizemoney of $17,250.

Simply The Best is only the third filly in the ten-year history of the NZTBA's Fillies And Mares Incentive Scheme to win three bonuses. The other two are Honour (from the FAMIS crop of 1991) and Betty Doolin (FAMIS '96).

South Island star Perceptible has won four FAMIS bonuses, the only filly to do so. However, Simply The Best looks well capable of matching that achievement sometime this season.
