Punters were left lamenting when 100-1 shot Rose Of Peace stormed down the outside to take out the Listed $100,000 TAB Sportsbet Wenona Girl Handicap (1200m) at Randwick today.

The rank outsider of the field at $101, Rose Of Peace surprised trainer Gary Portelli and jockey Brenton Avdulla who had ridden Fibrillation to victory earlier in the day.

Avdulla had Rose Of Peace out the back while Jim Cassidy had the $4.20 favourite Alberton Park parked just behind the leaders coming to the home turn.

The Hussonet mare was steered to the middle of the track by Avdulla and with runner up Quidnunc ($21) the only runner to her outside had a clear run to the line to score by a neck with Alberton Park winding up in third spot.

“We were honest in our approach today. We were badly weighted in a strong race and drew badly. She’s an honest filly but I couldn’t see her beating these horses at the weights,” Portelli said.

“It was a fantastic ride. He was patient and put her in a good spot and she has just come back a bit stronger I think.”

“She’s worth a lot as brood mare now.”

Avdulla agreed with Porttelli and thought Rose Of Peace would run a nice race and maybe a tidy fourth or fifth and wasn’t giving the four year old much of a chance coming up against a smart field of mares.

“I thought all my good rides were gone. I always thought she had a little bit of ability. I just had to ride her quiet from the barrier and I thought the middle of the track wouldn’t be a bad place at this time of the day,” Avdulla said.

“I was quite shocked how well she travelled up to them and when I gave her a dig and put the pressure on them she keep responding.”

    At this time it looks like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform out
    there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    Good information. Lucky me I ran across your website by chance (stumbleupon).

    I have book marked it for later!

  3. reverse phone lookup

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    found any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me.

    will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head before writing. I’ve had a
    hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    sharing facts, that’s truly fine, keep up writing.
