Yosei Surprises In The 2010 AJC Sires Produce Stakes Win

April 12th, 2010

It was a prolific win by Yosei, trained by Stuart Webb, in the $300,000 Group 1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m), held on Saturday at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse.

Ridden by Michelle Payne, the 2010 AJC Sires’ Produce Stakes was the first race to be won by a female jockey at the illustrious racecourse.

It was an unexpected win for Caulfield-based Yosei, who defeated Skilled by a half-head, with Hinchinbrook in third in what was an exciting race for spectators.

Favourite going into the 2010 AJC Sires’ Produce Stakes was the Gai Waterhouse-trained More Strawberries, who despite looking strong coming into the straight, finished in a surprising seventh place – a disappointing turn out for the filly who will now go for a spell until the Spring.

Finishing fourth, Toorak Toff was impressive in the finish, and is now going to the paddock.

Also taking place on Saturday alongside the 2010 AJC Sires Produce Stakes was the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m), the Group 1 T J Smith Stakes (1200m) and the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m).
