Russian Revolution led from start to finish to record a gutsy victory in the 2016 Vain Stakes at Caulfield this afternoon.

Mark Zahra took Russian Revolution straight to the lead in the early stages of the Vain Stakes and he travelled nicely before he was challenged by Valliano at the top of the straight.

Russian Revolution kicked away from his rival and had enough left in the tank to hold-off a flying Highland Beat to take out the Vain Stakes, while Hardham failed the line strongly to finish third.

Mark Zahra spent a couple of days in the sauna to get his weight down to the 55 kilograms required to ride Russian Revolution and he was delighted that his hard-work had paid off with a Vain Stakes victory.

“He was all out with 100 to go, but when he felt the horse coming inside him he did enough,” Zahra said.

“55 is my limit and I am just happy for an opportunity with the Snowdens and that the horse hung on.”

Team Snowden stable representative Jackson Biers was quick to pay credit to the front-running ride of Mark Zahra as well as the toughness that Russian Revolution showed in the final stages of the race.

Biers believes that Russian Revolution still has plenty of improvement left in front of him and he believes that there is more in store for the son of Snitzel this preparation.

“It was a really tough win,” Biers said.

“He is a green horse that is still learning his trade and it was a nice front-running ride from Mark.

“He had to do it out where on his own and they all had their chance to get out there and get him, but they couldn’t get there.

“He has only had three starts, he is a young horse, he is a green horse and he has plenty of ability.

“He is a lovely colt and he will improve from that as well.

“He is a horse that Peter and Paul have thought a lot of from the first time that he came to the stable and we keep raising the bar and he keeps jumping over it.”

Highland Beat showed that a throat operation has had a positive impact, while Hardham caught the eye and looks like a potential Caulfield Guineas type.

    benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to
    see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  12. Nellie

    Great website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any
    discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get responses from
    other experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

  15. blackdogcomm.com

    Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  16. extreme adventure

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward
    for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
