A dashing front-running ride by Damian Browne has helped Boomsara score his first stakes win in the Group Three Vo Rogue Stakes at which was marred by a mid-race fall.

Browne took Boomsara ($6) to lead Saturday's 1350m-race from a wide barrier and kept up the momentum to beat ($31) by 4-1/2 lengths with a short half head to the Room ($10).

Favourite ($2.15) effectively lost her chance in the backwash when came off Granny Red Shoes near the 650m.

Murphy was conscious and taken to hospital for precautionary X-rays after complaining of pain in his right hand and leg.

Boomsara won the $150,000 Aquis Jewel and was placed in the Group Two BRC Sires' Produce Stakes and the Group Three Memorial as two-year-old.

He showed how well he had come back when second to star three-year-old Zoustyle at his previous start.

Trainer is adamant Boomsara can beat much-hyped Victorian Native Soldier and several other leading contenders in the $2 million Guineas in a fortnight.

“I have been saying all along that we won't see the best of him until he got out to 1350 and 1400 metres,” Munce said.

“It was a month between runs today and he will be improved for the Guineas. I give him a real chance of winning the race.”

Munce won the Magic three times as a but never won the Guineas.

Boomsara cost $45,000 at the Magic Millions March sale and lifted his prize money to $360,000.

“He has been terrific for us and his owners who include the McAlpines of Eureka Stud who stand his sire Spirit of Boom,” Munce said.
