Yosei has won the 2011 Winter Stakes, which took place last Saturday June 25, 2011, by an incredible two lengths ahead of race favourite Beaded.
The Group 1 Winter Stakes, which were this year known as the Tattersall’s Tiara, was worth $500,000 and took place at Eagle Farm Racecourse as the final feature of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.
This was the third Group 1 horse racing victory for talented three-year-old filly Yosei, who also won the AJC Sires’ Produce Stakes and the Thousand Guineas last year.
Jockey Michelle Payne rode Yosei to victory in the 20111 Winter Stakes, who was paying odds of $15 at Luxbet.
Payne only recently returned to racing after a race fall ended in a broken neck, forcing her out of the saddle for nearly four months.
The 25-year-old jockey was thrilled to have been given the opportunity to ride Yosei to her third Group 1 victory in the 2011 Winter Stakes.
“The runs just kept coming everywhere in the straight and I was confident she would give me a good finish at the 200m,” Payne said.
“But I could see it was Beaded I was chasing so it was going to be a tough fight.
“I had one or two horses behind me coming to the home turn and the runs just kept opening up.
“It was a dream come true.
“She’s an amazing filly.”
It was the third Group 1 win for trainer Stuart Webb.
“That’s my third Group I win and they’ve all been with this filly,” Webb said.
“It was a terrific ride from Michelle and everything went to plan.”
Beaded finished second to Yosei in the 2011 Winter Stakes by a neck, while Born To Rock rounded out the placings in third.
