Eljetem finally breaks through

May 07, 2015

Talented three year old Eljetem broke through for his first win last week, with an impressive victory in the 1400m Maiden Handicap at the Gold Coast.

Starting from the outside barrier in the field of sixteen, Eljetem jumped away well but settled towards the rear of the field.  He was shuffled back to last approaching the turn but produced a barnstorming finish to score by a length.

The win was a relief for connections, as the Jet Spur gelding was having his twelth start.  He has always shown above average ability but has taken a long time to work out what racing is all about.  He will now head towards the Group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas next weekend.
