Blessed Sue (ridden by Jessica Hill for trainer Doug Harrison) scored by a half-head from 6YO gelding Educated Money (Dauberval-Perfect Illusions, by Zabaleta) with a further head to 7YO mare Ebony Storm (Metal Storm-Rip It Up, by I'm In Luck). Blessed Sue (a $2,000 yearling at the 2003 Magic Millions Perth Premier Sale) took her record to 13 wins & 8 placings from 23 starts for $210,170 earnings.
