Canterbury: 'Dontbother' delivers


Under patient handling from rider Derek Bell, Dontbotherknocking ($9.60) bested nine rivals to capture the $75,000 John Bullit Stakes for the second time in three years at Canterbury Park.

Sitting in sixth as the field approached the final turn, Dontbotherknocking swept by rivals racing four wide into the stretch and edged away from favored Gin and Sin in the final sixteenth to prevail by 1 1/2 lengths.

Bernell Rhone trains Dontbotherknocking, whose win in the John Bullit was his seventh over the Canterbury turf.
