Surprise 3 yo wins the Queens Plate

Jet Dark on Saturday proved once again that three-year-olds can win the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate.

Justin Snaith sent out four of the eight runners and it was expected that Belgarion and Do It Again were the best of the quartet. But it was Trippi colt Jet Dark who upended the more fancied runner to beat Rainbow Bridge by 0.75 lengths. He is owned by Nic Jonsson pictured and Mr Crowe.

Third place went to Belgarion, who was the same distance behind Rainbow Bridge, with fourth place going to Do It Again.

The winner was ridden by Grant van Niekerk.

Earlier, Queen Supreme completed a Grade 1 Cartier Paddock Stakes over 1800m double at Kenilworth.

Trained by Mike de Kock and ridden by Kegan de Melo, the five-year-old mare took the lead in the final 300m and eased away from the opposition to beat Clouds Unfold by 2.25 lengths.

Third and fourth places went to the two three-year-olds in the field, Princess Calla and Chat Ching respectively.

The unbeaten run of Summer Pudding sadly came to an end. She came under pressure with 400m to run and ended up in seventh place, 4.95 lengths behind the winner.  She did have excuses as she was scoped post race and mucus was found in her tract.
