2018 Furious Stakes – Pure Elation Caps Big Day for Snowden Stable

Pure Elation has capped a big day for the Peter and Paul Snowden stable, scoring a scintillating victory in the Furious Stakes following Redzel’s triumph in the Concorde three races prior.

The three-year old filly hardly looked like a chance down the straight, but the inside barrier proved handy as Michael Walker clung to the rail, only to explode with 100m to go.

Michael Walker rides Pure Elation to victory at Randwick on Saturday.

With a spotty record first-up, this was the sort of run we’d come to expect from Pure Elation further down the track. The win marked her second Group 2 victory, but also showed the quality and turn of foot this horse has moving forward.

Withstanding a late challenge from Hugh Bowman on Fiesta, Pure Elation found an extra kick as she lunged toward the line. She looked a little off balance late, but after such a challenging campaign last time up, the win was a welcome sign for the stable.

“It was an end of a really arduous campaign for her, the amount of things that went wrong with her in the Blue Diamond preparation, to actually exceed and go beyond what we asked of her, it doesn’t always go like that” Paul Snowden told SkyRacing after the race.

The question now becomes, is Pure Elation a sprinter or something more?

With jockey Michael Walker eyeing off the $1 million Coolmore Stud Stakes on November 3, we may have an answer very soon.

“I think if we can keep her right, Coolmore down the straight” Walker said post-race.

As for today’s victory, this is one Walker also looks to learn from.

“To be honest I nearly mucked it up. I should’ve known better, she goes from naught to 100 in one shot”

Pure Elation now enters the Coolmore as the $8.00 equal favourite with Written By at Ladbrokes.
