POPULAR Warrnambool galloper Begood Toya Mother will have one more run before a start in the $500,000 Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield on September 21.
Begood Toya Mother earned a run in the group one feature after scoring an all-the-way victory over Haunted and Fundamentalist in the listed Regal Roller Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday.
The lightly-raced five-year-old has won his past six consecutive starts and took his winning tally to seven from 11 runs with the win in the 1200-metre race.
Trainer Daniel Bowman said the win was a great result for his stable and Warrnambool-based jockey Declan Bates.
"I've got to thank my wife Denita, our stable staff and Declan for all the work they put in behind the scenes," he said.
"There was a lot of pressure on before Begood Toya Mother won on Saturday.
"There's a bit of hype about the horse and the following is continuing to grow after his win at Caulfield.
"I suppose some of it is because of the name Begood Toya Mother. It's a catchy name that everyone can relate to.
"Winning his last six consecutive races has also created a lot of interest. He seems to have pulled up alright but it was a tough run.
"The Rupert Clarke is our main aim. We may run him in a fortnight or three weeks before the Rupert Clarke."
Bowman purchased Begood Toya Mother for $28,000. The son of Myboycharlie has now won more then $277,000 in stakemoney for his connections.
Guizot, trained by Warrnambool trainer Aaron Purcell, was another local winner at Caulfield on Saturday.
