Zenith Wins Superman at Stud Final

Lara based trainer Jamie Ennis topped off a sensational week on Saturday night by taking out the feature race at The Meadows, the Superman at Stud Final (525m) with the promising galloper Zenith.

Earlier in the week on Thursday, Ennis produced the upset victory of the night at the Solo Melbourne Cup heats when his $33 outsider Octare secured victory in her heat defeating top fancies Cindeen Shelby and Gripen Bale.

As the Melbourne Cup box draw was taking place at the annual Melbourne Cup ball, Ennis’ Zenith (Collision x Tarawi) starting as the $2.90 favourite, defeated a top-class field of rivals at The Meadows including runner-up Atomic Voodoo ($7.30) by a neck and Graeme Bate’s Admiral Bale ($4.60) who was a further three lengths away in third. Zenith clocked a time of 30.30 seconds for the win.

Saturday’s $10 000 Superman at Stud victory was Zenith’s sixth successive win and the speedster is now unbeaten in three tries at The Meadows. His career record now stands at nine wins in 23 starts.

Ennis’ other runner in the final on Saturday night, Where Am I, came in a distant last, 16.5 lengths from the winner in seventh place after Kilrush failed to finish.
