In dramatic circumstance Jal Lei brought up a very deserving Gr3 victory in the Wenona Girl Stakes on Saturday. Aided by a smart ride from stable apprentice Reece Jones, the four-year-old let down the Randwick straight before encountering interference at the fifty-meter mark. After going to the steward’s room, the daughter of Sebring was rightly awarded victory, the triumph adding valuable black type to the mares profile.
Moving forward the Gr3 Birthday Card Stakes on Golden Slipper Day profiles very similarly to the race on Saturday, with a keen eye on the second day of The Championships where she will be aimed at the Sapphire Stakes.
