Mabee Stakes – Grade II
1 1/8 Mile Turf Stake Purse $200.000 Filly & Mare 3 Year Olds And Up.
1st Well Built, trained by Golden Stables
This three year old has been improving all the time and today thrashed one of the most consistent grade one performers of the year in Devil Wears Prada. Just getting home by a half length against her own age group at grade three last time, she was always cantering in reciept of the three year old allowance today and won as she liked by three lengths.
2nd Devil Wears Prada, trained by Axeman
This wonderful mare has won a grade one and been placed in three others in the lead up to this race, but today couldn’t cope with the three year old Well Built, being soundly beaten. She ran on well as always, but never got a sniff of the winner, but nothing should be taken away from this six year old who has yet to cash a cheque this year.
3rd Jaxartosaurus, trained by Chili King Stables
Kept on past tired ones for third, but was well beaten.
4th Taking Liberties, trained by Gdp Inc
Stayed on for fourth, but never really got in the race for the major prizes
