The aptly named Begood Toya Mother hung on to defeat Penthouse Playboy and Trerice in the 1600 metre race.
Bowman said the son of Myboycharlie was racing on raw ability.
“Begood Toya Mother did a lot wrong running second at his Donald debut,” he said.
“He did the same winning at Echuca but there’s lots of upside to him. He’s racing with a baby brain, when it all drops he should develop into a nice horse.”
Bowman, who parted with $28,000 to purchase Begood Toya Mother at the Magic Millions Yearling Sales in Adelaide, takes no credit for the naming of the three-year-old colt.
“I’ve got to acknowledge my brother Marcus for naming him,” Bowman said. “I think everyone can relate to the naming of Begood Toya Mother. It’s a really catchy name. I don’t want to rush the horse. The win is a great result for some locals who are in the ownership of the horse.”
Begood Toya Mother’s stablemate Day On The Drink ran third in a maiden plate at Bendigo on Friday.
“We travelled both horses up to Bendigo on Friday before travelling over to Echuca on Saturday,” he said. “We’ve found travelling horses away toughens them up. Day On The Drink is ready to win a maiden. Begood Toya Mother and Day On The Drink are among other young horses we’ve got in the stable. We’ve got a really nice team of young horses coming through.”
