Bowness and Vieira Yearlings Make Magic in Adelaide – Part Two
Tara Madgwick - Thursday, 9 March 2017

John North's Bowness Stud at Young in the south west of NSW is a proven nursery for winners including Bert Vieira's Group III Canberra Black Opal Stakes winner Trapeze Artist, who is now likely to run in the Group I ATC Golden Slipper.

A dominant winner in Canberra for the Gerald Ryan stable, Trapeze Artist beat a quality field to win the Black Opal and the son of Snitzel is clearly on an upswing at the right time!

Trapeze Artist was foaled and raised in the big open spaces of Bowness Stud as are all the Vieira horses.
