Above Authority Wins In Style At Ballarat

Above Authority opened her winning account at Ballarat today in style, winning running away from her opposition by 2.5 lengths.

At the 250 metre mark Michelle Payne's mount Worship The Blade was well in front and looked likely to win easily but it weakened and Above Authority showed her staying potential by finishing strongly.

Darren Weir stable representative Darren Murphy was impressed by the win and described the filly by English Derby winner Authorised as a promising stayer.
