Jessicabeel Wins The 2010 Sydney Cup

April 27th, 2010

Jessicabeel, trained by John O’Shea took out the $400,000 Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) on Saturday, beating the other 10 starters to claim the prestigious title.

Ridden by Craig Newitt, the mare got off to a bad start, but given the longer distance Newitt was happy to keep the winner at the back of the field, outstaying the other competitors and crossing the line first after a fantastic turn of foot.

Finishing three-quarters of a length behind, Divine Rebel claimed her second runner up spot in the Sydney Cup two years in a row, with Harris Tweed finishing in third at the Royal Randwick Racecourse.

Also taking place on Saturday was the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m), the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) and the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m).
