On the Beauford track today, Tuesday 21st March 2023 we saw the beautifully bred filly Jovita (Snitzel/Benetta) make a somewhat green but mostly impressive debut at the Newcastle races.
Her victory came in Race 5, the Australian Bloodstock Maiden Handicap for Fillies and Mares over 1200m. From barrier 4, Jovita jumped well enough to take up a leading position hugging the fence. Briefly challenged by the wide running Yamba’s Reward she turned it up a notch when jockey Tom Sherry reminded her that she still had a job to do, and that she did. A bit wayward up the straight but she still managed to score by over half a length.
Congratulations to the Owners, it was an absolute pleasure to train another winner for George Altomonte and Corumbene Stud.
