High profile breeder and Studmaster Anne Lamb received a pleasant surprise yesterday after being trackside to watch the horse she bred with her husband Wayne win the first race on the Orange TAB Carnival of Cups program.

Clearly chuffed by Aunty Kym's victory, Lamb was then reminded that she had just earned $3,000 cash courtesy of the recently introduced Breeders Challenge Nominators Bonus.

"I didn't realise I was entitled to the bonus until after the race so it was a big surprise," said Lamb.

"As a breeder the bills add up paying for registrations and futurities so to be entitled to a $3000 bonus really helps. It's a good initiative for breeders."

The Breeders Challenge Nominators Bonus, which came into effect for this season's 2yo crop, provides for a $3,000 cash bonus to the nominator/breeder for a horse's first "C" class win of the season. The Nominators Bonus also includes a cash return to the nominator/breeder for Group 1 victories.

Aunty Kym also earned her connections a $2,500 Breeders Challenge Owners Bonus Certificate in addition to the $5,100 in first prizemoney making her debut victory worth $10,600 in total to all concerned. Not a bad day's work on a balmy afternoon in the Central West.

The feature event on the bumper card - the Banjo Paterson Cup - was taken out by the Jack Butler trained Marty Bee who has proved to be a bargain buy for owner Rod Smith.

In winning Marty Bee broke the 2240m track record rating 1:58.4 whilst popular grey mare Laaganoosh broke the 1880m track record when she rated 1:59.1 earlier in the day.
