Plug Pulled On Overpass’ Winter

Star sprinter Overpass has been sent for a spell and will not take part in races during the Brisbane winter carnival over the coming weeks.

A slight temperature has forced trainer Bjorn Baker to pull the pin on a Group 1 Doomben 10,000 tilt following a terrific win in The Quokka in Perth.

Overpass ran second in the Doomben 10,000 last year and was only beaten by Giga Kick with connections now setting a path to the Everest at Randwick in October which would be his third attempt at winning the race.

Connections are also understood to be eyeing off several spring targets in Melbourne.
