First winner for Alabama Express

The $50,000 Moorundi Classic for juveniles at Murray Bridge on Saturday 7th October produced the perfect result for young Yulong sire Alabama Express when his two-year-old filly Karavas scored a determined last stride win over Yes Yes Tess.

The 900m scamper attracted five runners with the Richard and Chantelle Jolly trained Karavas sent off favourite. She was strong to the line and just edged out Yes Yes Tess, who tried hard all the way to the line going down by a head.

Karavas was a $260,000 Inglis Premier purchase for her trainers at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the Yulong draft and runs in the colours of Neville Morgan. She is the first winner for All Of Me (Pierro), a winning half-sister to Group winners Star of Giselle and Solicit, out of Stakes winner Princesa, a daughter of Gr.1 winner Kapchat.

All Of Me is due to foal a Tagaloa this spring.

A Gr.1-winning son of Redoute’s Choice, Alabama Express stands at Yulong at a fee of $22,000.
