Talented stayer Jetset Lad produced an impressive late kick to win the card-ending Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2200m) on Stradbroke Handicap Day at Doomben Racecourse.

Jumping from the gates only fairly, jockey Paul Hammersley was forced to settle off pace of early leaders Escado, Volkhere and Surpass past the post the first time, who appeared focused on setting a reasonably quick early tempo.

Pushing off the rails over the final straight, Hammersley led Jetset Lad around the field and joined Escado on pace approaching the final bend.

Finding a clear racing line in the final straight, Jetset Lad locked in a fierce sprint battle with Epingle and Sense Of Occasion, and while appearing to have fallen off pace with 200m to run, produced an impressive kick to poke through a win in a photo finish.

Queenslanders have been unable to post much success in major black type events through the 2015 Brisbane Winter Carnival, but trainer Brian Smith was pleased to take one back from the locals in saddling Jetset Lad to success in the Brisbane Cup.

“What a great little horse,” Smith said after the race.

“When the bloke’s out three wide in the Derby and won it, I told my jockey Paul Hammersley ‘Just cuddle him up!’

“What a game horse and if you’re patient, I’m old now, but if you’re patient you get one!

“You just keep living the dream in this game, don’t you.”

Jetset Lad has steadily built to the task over four starts this time in; running fourth in a minor over 1200m first-up, and while failing to figure when eleventh in the Listed Prime Minister’s Cup (1400m) on April 15th, has clearly relished a continued step-up in distance in placing eighth in the Listed Member’s Handicap (1600m) and third in the Group 3 Premier’s Cup (2020m) leading into this afternoon’s success

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and
    without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that
    not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I
    stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this.

    time. Great stuff, just excellent!

    I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues with
    your website. It appears like some of the written text within your posts

    I think that what you posted made a ton of sense. But, think about this, suppose you were to write a killer headline?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t good, however suppose
    you added a post title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Jetset Lad Claims One for the Locals in Brisbane Cup – HorseRacing.com.au is a little
    boring. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab
    readers interested about everything’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it would make your posts
    a little livelier.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
