BLAST FROM THE PAST


ELLE MAC

Top harness racing trainers Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen have produced classy filly Elle Mac to win the Gr1 Nevele R Fillies final tonight at Addington Raceway.

Elle Mac was dominant in the $134,400 Final for 3yo fillies easily beating All Stars stable mates Bettor Trix (2nd) and Delight In Me (3rd) without being fully extended by driver Natalie Rasmussen.

Natalie said on the All Stars website, "All the fillies went terrific in the Nevele R. Elle Mac is just a lovely filly and she seems to be going to another level.

"She won really easily and the extra distance of the Oaks next week will actually suit her better.

"The other two fillies deserve praise. Delight in Me went a huge race and so did Bettor Trix because she had to do some work early.

"It is really satisfying to run like that in G1 races," she said.

Elle Mac paced the 1950m mobile in a slick 1-55.4 mile rate with a closing 800m in 55.9 and her last 400m in 26.8 seconds. She will be back at Addington next week for the New Zealand Oaks over the longer trip of 2600m.

All Stars Stables also scored wins with Ohanzee and Sicario during the night with both pacers now looking to head forward to Jewels day on the first Saturday in June.
