Regarded as the best handicap stayer produced in Queensland winning five Cups - Ipswich, Queensland, Caulfield, Australian and Doomben. His overall record is unfair because he had 31 starts after taking the 1967 Doomben Cup without winning. He was placed in several other top staying races including the Brisbane Cup and Moonee Valley Cup (twice). However, his best effort was winning the 1965 Caulfield Cup when he spanked the ultimate Melbourne Cup runner-up Ziema. His jockey Fred Clarke went to his grave swearing he would have won the 1965 Melbourne Cup had he not fallen. Throughout Bore Head's career he was trained by R. Dillon and D. Judd.
