Front Running Pride Of Jenni Takes Gr1 All Star Mile

Pride Of Jenni dazzled in the $3.75 million All-Star Mile, showcasing her breathtaking speed and maintaining a commanding lead down the Caulfield straight under the expert guidance of Declan Bates.

Executing another flawless front-running performance, the two-time Group 1 victor wasted no time in asserting her dominance, leading Buffalo River into the corner and effortlessly pulling away to secure victory.

Despite a valiant effort from Mr. Brightside, who finished second from a challenging wide barrier position, Ciaron Maher's star mare remained unchallenged, with Cascadian trailing a length behind in third place.

Owned by Tony and Lynn Ottobre, Pride Of Jenni has now amassed over $5 million in earnings for her connections, with her win also rewarding ASM Ambassador Sharon White with $100,000.

Looking ahead, Maher hinted at the possibility of continuing the campaign as soon as the following week, with Pride Of Jenni, Mr. Brightside, and Cascadian all potential contenders for the Australian Cup.

Reflecting on Pride Of Jenni's exceptional abilities, Maher emphasized her remarkable stamina and enduring speed, highlighting her unique talent to sustain a rapid pace over extended distances.

Acknowledging the collective effort behind Pride Of Jenni's success, Maher commended Declan Bates for his outstanding performance, as well as his dedicated team and the unwavering support of Tony and Lynn Ottobre.

With Pride Of Jenni priced at $5 for the Australian Cup, anticipation builds as she prepares to face formidable competition, including the favored Mr. Brightside at $2.80 and Gold Trip closely following at $6.
