Mamwaazel Wins 2015 Belle Of The Turf Stakes in Photo Finish

A small yet classy field of eight fillies and mares tackled the mile at Gosford Racecourse on Friday afternoon in the Group 3 Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m), which went to a photo finish for all first three across the line.

Sunday To Far led the pack but $3 favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au Peace Force made her way up to sit behind the leader after getting away fairly out the gate.

With 200 metres to go Peace Force began moving up to challenge but so did Mamwaazel ($5.50) with the pair crossing the line for a photo finish.

Peace Force and Mamwaazel once again finished less than a nose within each other but after the former emerged victorious at Canterbury on December 27, the 2015 Belle Of The Turf Stakes went in favour of Chris Waller’s Mamwaazel.

Hoop Glyn Schofield rode the four-year-old mare to victory and admitted after the race that he had his work cut out for him.

“I wasn’t going quick enough to clear Brenton (Avdulla) and I was aware he was there so I had to give him a little bit of room,” he said directly after the race.

“I didn’t want to drive the ears off Mamwaazel just for the sake of being there but I ended up coming back and getting into a good spot fortunately.

“I came round the corner a little wide and I didn’t want to eyeball Peace Force too much because she’s a real fighter but my filly didn’t corner too well so I got a bit away from her in the straight and blindsided her.

“We got a bit of a margin and she just held on.”

Mary Lou ($5) rounded out the first three home, one length behind Mamwaazel and Peace Force.
