Pearces' top Bunbury trainers' premiership

Apr 11, 2021

The conclusion of the Bunbury Turf Club's 2020/21 racing season on Wednesday saw Daniel and Ben Pearce finish atop of the trainers' premiership.

The brothers prepared 11 Bunbury winners between the August 1 and April 7 timeframe, defeating Grant and Alana Williams (nine), Adam Durrant (six) and Michael Lane (six).

Alfred Nobel gelding Lyle's Choice led the charge for the Pearces' with back-to-back Bunbury wins in November, while stablemates Worth A Risk, Casa Rosada, Speedy Miss, Double Jeopardy, Superlove, Chiclett, Allmamoney and Zangief each recorded one victory at the south-west track.

The Bunbury track is set to commence an exciting redevelopment now, with upgrades including new all-weather turf, a new training track, new drainage, a new irrigation system and new horse stalls.

Racing Wagering Western Australia have committed $17 million to the project, which is expected to be completed in 2023.
