Lady Lynette has finished things off at Moonee Valley’s Cox Plate Day this afternoon with an historic win in the closing race on the card – the $150,000 Group 3 Pulse Pharmacy Stakes (1600m).
The David and Scott Brunton-trained Lady Lynette became the first mare in history to win back-to-back editions of the feature race.
After letting Our Tigress and Preventable set the pace, Lady Lynette was held back by jockey Nicholas Hall until the right moment.
Preventable eventually got to the front to lead, with the odds-on favourite Katie Lee slow away from the gates and sitting last on the rails, never making up the ground.
On the home turn Lady Lynette and Delta Gee moved up to challenge with Strawberry Field also making ground on the outside.
In a thrilling battle to the line, Lady Lynette eventually pulled away to win by a length and a quarter over $31 roughie Delta Gee with the John O’Shea-trained Music Review in third.
Lady Lynette has now won 10 of her 30 career starts.
With Cox Plate Day over for another year, So You Think emerging as the story of the day winning the 2010 Cox Plate for the second year in a row, the next major race meeting of the spring carnival is the Victoria Derby Day.
