She looked Sinsational

Shez Sinsational has taken out the Zabeel classic 2000m Weight for age in New Zealand. She caught my attention when she travelled over for the Oaks in Brisbane where she ran a great third behind the very classy Scarlett Lady, and then backed up a week later to go down by a head in the QLD Derby to Shootoff.

The daughter of Ekraar has come back well and was given a great ride by superstar apprentice James McDonald. She settled worse than midfield and he got her out and rolling around the 700m. When she got out it was all over and she was dominant running away from the field to win by 1 ½ lengths and take her earnings to nearly $380,000.

I would love to see her come back for our Brisbane carnival in 2012 as she looks an outstanding staying prospect, and could again feature in many of the big races over the Winter.

*The replay can be found at

And it is a very good site with free replays and everything racing. (A few racing clubs would do well to follow the lead of NZ when it comes to this)

A lot of people would be spending punting dollars betting on NZ simply because of this site and being able to access free replays etc because it seems as though it will never happen in Australia.
