Four Year Olds and Up Fillies and Mares

1st Franke, trained by Australia Wide

Rolling off of the previous victory that she had she came back and won again and got up to win by a nose. She ran a huge race once again and is proving herself with every race. She ran the distance in 1:33.50 and earned $300.000 for the win.

2nd Proud Eights, trained by Estero Farms

Another good runner up from the filly here as she was just edged out by a nose in here. She had a good trip and ran a huge race and was just narrowly beaten in the end. Very good runner up finish from her.

3rd Lorraine, trained by Mo Mentum Farm

Close third place finish for this filly as she was in front for most of the stretch run until right before the wire where she was caught. She fought on hard and only got beat by a head by the winner at the end of this race.

4th Angel Shark, trained by John Henry

A big run from last from and that late charge got her up to at least hit the board and she was only beaten by a neck at the end. She ran a very good race and with a little more ground she might have got up to win.

Summary

A blanket finish for the top four here as only a neck separated the top four finishers. Franke went on to win her second graded stakes wins in a row. Congratulations to Franke and Australia Wide.
