The Epsom Handicap, a Group 1 race held at Randwick Racecouse each year in late September over the 1600 metre course, is one of the major races on the Sydney and Australian racing calendars. The race was first run back in 1863 and since then has seen some famous horses win the race including Chatham in 1932 and 1933, Gunsynd in 1971 and Super Impose in 1990 and 1991.
In 2013 Boban won the race after settling third last and three wide from the jump. At the 800 metre mark Boban found some interferance on the heels of another horse and was relegated back to second last. As they turned for home Boban was pulled out extremely wide and started to produce one of the runs of the year down the outside of the Randwick straight. Motoring home in the last 100 metres, the three year old (at the time) caught Streama on the line to claim the victory paying $6.70 best tote. A nose away second was Streama $4.60 followed by a neck to third placed Toydini $6.
