The Ciaron Maher trained Jameka had a disappointing end to her 2016 Spring Carnival when she was beaten almost fourteen lengths when fifteenth to Almandin in the Group 1 $6m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on November 1.

Jameka was sent out as the $8.50 second favourite after winning the Group 1 $3m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield just over two week prior.

The Myboycharlie mare’s Caulfield Cup lead up runs were good with a win in the Group 3 $150,000 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield on September 17 followed by a second to Hartnell in the Group 1 $500,000 Yellowglen Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on October 2.

Jameka raced just ahead of midfield in the Melbourne and as well as not being able to run out a strong 3200m, Maher has reported that she suffered a minor injury in her hind quarters and was sent straight for a rest.

“We just had to keep her in a pretty confined space, in a small paddock for a couple of weeks, she just had a little tear behind, in her sacroiliac, but she should make a full recovery from that,” Maher told racing.com.

“We’ll probably just give her a light autumn, she’s had a pretty consistent time since she’s started racing as a two-year-old, so might just give her a light autumn with a view to have her cherry ripe for the spring again next year.

“She’s got a well-earned break ahead of her.”

Maher is yet to set out an Autumn Carnival program but he is likely to keep her to weight for age races before giving her a short break before preparing her for another Spring Carnival campaign.

Jameka has run her best races during the Spring and as well as winning the Caulfield Cup this year, she proved to be the best three year old filly during the 2015 Spring Carnival when she won the Group 1 $1m Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington.

Jameka is the winner of five of her twenty race starts and has won $3,637,925 for her connections.

  1. website design

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    head prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts
    in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally
    lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas
    or tips? Thank you!
