Gutsy Win by Genoveffa at Kembla Grange
Aug 19, 2019
Gen has secured her third career win after winning the 1600 metre race at Kembla Grange on 8 August 2019.
Jockey, Tim Clark took the ride, jumping from barrier two and weighed with 55 kilograms for the race.
Gen jumped cleanly from the barriers and was able to maintain a forward running position during the early part of the race.
There was some hot speed early in the race and at the 1400 metre mark, there was a true battle on up front for the leading position.
During all this, Gen was able to settle back with a rails run, about mid-field in the pack. She looked to travel well for Tim and, at the turn into the long Kembla straight, Tim urged Gen to take a very narrow gap between horses and weave her way into clear running, which she bravely did.
With a strong ride all the way to the line, Gen was able to drop her nose down on the line to secure the win from Emergent in 2nd place and Captain Manering in 3rd.
Thank you to Tim for a great ride on Gen and also to the very happy owners who were there at Kembla to celebrate her win.
This was an impressive and determined win from the Dreamscape mare and we hope there are many, many more to come.
