Agent Pippa winning Saturday 30 March 2018 at Ascot Racecourse

Bam back to the west

Bam’s On Fire is back in Western Australia where it all began and will take her place in the Group 3 Iron Jack – Belmont Sprint (1400m) at Belmont Park on Saturday.

The talented mare finished third in the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes (1100m) back in 2018 before eventually making her way over east.

It was a successful journey for her where she found herself winning a Group 3 Vic Handicap at Caulfield, finishing third in a Group 1 Sangster and finishing runner-up in the Group 2 Sunline Stakes, Group 2 Matron Stakes and Group 3 Mannerism.

Having struggled since her Group 1 placing back in May 2020, connections have decided to send her west to Neville Parnham, a formula that has recently worked for this ownership group.

The now five-year-old mare will have to overcome a wide barrier but does have Paul Harvey in the saddle for her first-up assignment back in WA.
