2011 Kewney Stakes Won by Do Ra Mi Over Brazilian Pulse

March 16th, 2011

The 2011 Kewney Stakes was run and won on Saturday March 12 at Flemington Racecourse, with Peter Moody’s up-and-coming filly Do Ra Mi claiming an upset win over last year’s Crown Oaks winner Brazilian Pulse.

The $500,000 Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1600m) betting was dominated by the Michael Moroney-trained Brazilian Pulse who was backed into the $3.20 favourite for her first-up run since taking out the 2010 Crown Oaks.

But in an upset Kewney Stakes result Moody’s classy Savabeel filly Do Ra Mi backed up from her last start second to Southern Speed in the Group 3 The Mittys Vanity (1400m) to score her debut black-type victory.

In a brilliant come-from-behind win, Do Ra Mi ($15) took off over the final 100m and on the line had 2 ¼ lengths to spare over Brazilian Pulse ($3.20) while the Peter Snowden-trained Divorces ($8) finished off the trifecta a further head away in third.

John Thompson’s $101 roughie Jeter also produced an eye-catching run to come in a gallant fourth.

Do Ra Mi has now won three of her seven career starts earning just shy of $370,000 in prize money.

Group 1 glory in Sydney is next for Do Ra Mi, so watch out for her in the betting markets at Luxbet.
