Youthful Jack caused a boil over in the Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) at Grafton today, storming down the outside in the final 200 metres of the race to score an upset victory.

As expected a hot pace was set up front early with Adebisi holding a narrow lead from Big Bonanza while Howmuchdoyouloveme was a further four lengths back in third.

Big Bonanza looked the winner with 200 metres left to run, as Adebisi faded badly, but it was Youthful Jack who finished the strongest flashing home to score a one length victory from a brave Big Bonanza and Pentasia.

The win was the third Ramornie Handicap victory for veteran jockey Robert Thompson, who piloted The Jackal to back-to-back wins in 2007 and 2008, while Taree-based trainer Ross Stitt celebrated his first win in the race after eighteen years of coming to the Grafton Cup Festival.

It was a sensational training performance from Stitt who set Youthful Jack for the race first-up even though the gelding failed to beat a single runner home in the George Adams Plate at Launceston (1600m) and Enviropacific Newmarket (1400m) at Newcastle in his last two starts.

The seven-year-old, who was purchased for only $5000, has now won at stakes level on ten occasions and has picked up over $1 million in prizemoney.

Howmuchdoyouloveme started the race as a clear favourite but the 60.5kg was clearly too much for the Written Tycoon gelding who raced flat and could finish no better than fifth.

Gundy Son was the best backed runner in the lead-up to the race but missed the start and was never a contender finishing at the tail of the field.

    The holocaust never happened. 6 million jews did NOT die!!! Google “Did Six Million Really Die PDF” and read that 44 page free eBook. It’s time to wake up, people. Stop believing the lies the jewish media and Jew hollywood is constantly pumping out.

    The earth is FLAT! How come NASA has never once shown a REAL photo of earth from space instead of CGI images? How come you can look at a building a 100 miles away thru a telescope, even through it should be under the horizon since the earth is supposed to curve 8 inches per mile? Why did an international government treaty BAN civilian exploration of the North Pole or “Antarctica”? Why were all the great “scientists” of the past 500 years who promoted the concept of a round earth globe ALL Freemasons, including Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton? WAKE UP PEOPLE! The global elite, the Illuminati, are LYING TO YOU!!! THE EARTH IS FUCKING FLAT!!!!!!
