The Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes at Doomben today have been won with a gutsy effort by Peter Snowden’s Kanzan.

The four-year-old mare flew down the final straight to win the $150,000 race.

Darley Thoroughbred manager Henry Plumtree expressed his satisfaction with Kanzan’s win and labelled Brisbane as one of his favourite places to race his horses.

“I love coming back to Brisbane, especially when we keep winning races,” Mr Plumtree said.

Jockey Corey Brown was surprised by the fast tempo of the race.

“I didn’t anticipate there to be so much speed in the race,” Brown said.

Brown said that it is always an honour for him to be able to ride for the Darley stables.

“As soon as I put these colours on I just feel alive,” he said.

Trainer Peter Snowden was glad to see Kanzan produce such an impressive win.

“She’s just so strong mentally and physically now,” Snowden said.

“She kept coming into it and (was) very strong in the last 200 metres and that’s been the facet of her races all the way through.”

Kanzan won the Glenlogan Park Stakes ahead of Zero Rock, who finished second, and Returntosender, who ran home for third.
