Welcome MT. Barker Win For Jomatesi

The stable sent a small team to Mt. Barker for their midweek fixture today.

Isn’t She Gorgeous started off her campaign with an encouraging 3rd in the Plantagenet Farm Supplies Maiden, over 1100 metres.

A full field went to post in the Thank A Volunteer Handicap over 1200 metres, and Jomatesi was one of the outsiders, not having had a win for over 2 years. Once the race started, Kelly Davidson took advantage of the horse’s good barrier to settle him just behind the pacemaker Marooned Flirt. The field went along at only a steady pace, and as the leader weakened on the home turn Kelly seized the initiative and made a dash for the line. Jomatesi responded well and, despite the late challenge of the favourite Driven To Victory, won a shade cosily by 1¼ lengths.

This was obviously a welcome victory for the horse’s patient owners, and Kelly’s first winning ride for the stable.
