Fabio storms to Group 1 glory at The Meadows

My Bro Fabio has achieved back-to-back Group 1 glory after a stunning come-from-behind victory in the Group 1 Temlee at The Meadows on Saturday night.

The son of Turanza Bale and Flamenco jumped cleanly but still had to settle in sixth spot from his wide draw, slowly but surely weaving his way through traffic before running to third as they reached the home bend. The Brooke Ennis-trained star then unleashed his customary finishing burst, powering away to a sensational 29.70 victory to win his second Group 1 event at The Meadows. Awesome Project wound up in second, while reserve Marcus Joe was far from disgraced in third.

It was My Bro Fabio’s 25th win from 48 starts and clearly one of his best considering the quality of his rivals.

The brilliant chaser will be one of the leading contenders in next week’s Group 1 ATC Australian Cup heats, with connections hoping he can add to his already imposing prizemoney level of $469,325.

It was one of three Group 1s run and won on the night, with Space Star and Cosmic Wise taking out the Zoom Top and Rookie Rebel respectively.

The night also saw the running of eight Australian Cup preliminaries, with Ikaku Bale setting the time standard, scorching to a brilliant 29.59 victory.
