Former Leeton horseman Tony Peacock has never won the MIA Breeders but he takes three chances into Saturday’s heats.
His best effort was a third with Badboy Nitro in the 2005 final, the last time he had a runner in the two-year-old classic.
Of his three horses, Manos De Piedra, Illawong Bondi and Taukau Beach, the Moama based trainer rates Illawong Bondi as his best chance.
Despite drawing wide in the second of the three heats, Peacock thought he showed the most promise.
“He’s quite nice,” Peacock said.
“None of them have had a lot of practice yet but they have good manners.
“We do think a bit of him and I think he is going to be a pretty nice horse by the end of the year.”
Peacock also has the Riverina-owned Barimah in the Cobram Pacing Cup on Sunday.
