Sharnee Rose has claimed the Group 3 Golden Pendant at Rosehill Gardens today September 28, 2013.
The five-year-old flew down the outside to snatch the 2013 Golden Pendant ahead of a gallant Red Tracer, who placed second, and Bennetta, who passed the post a close third.
Sharnee Rose was paying long odds of $51 to win today’s $250,000 race at Ladbrokes.com.au, while Red Tracer was the $2.45 race favourite.
The Nadeem mare has now won three of her 23 race starts and has earned more than $386,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
Trainer Kris Lees was at the track to witness Sharnee Rose recoup her early career form and win the 2013 Golden Pendant.
“(It’s) great to get a Group win for the boys,” said Kris.
“We’ve been very happy with her.
“We went to the races thinking she was a genuine pace chance.
“She’s always had that ability.
“She’ll probably be freshened for the 1,200 metre race in three weeks.”
Brenton Avdulla was the jockey to steer Sharnee Rose to today’s upset win in the 2013 Golden Pendant.
“We ended up getting the back of Red Tracer which was perfect,” Avdulla said.
“To be honest I thought Red Tracer had me at the furlong, because I know how good she is.
“But to my girl’s credit she had the fitness edge and was too strong for them.”
