Above Authority had a great win at Ballarat today!
Dean Yendall restrained her early from the wide barrier to settle near the rear of the field 3 wide with some cover, where she travelled well behind a strong tempo.
Dean then asked her to come out around them approaching the home turn before giving a good kick entering the straight and proving too strong on the line.
Finally she got some daylight early in a race and had the time to wind up and get her chance to win by the narrowest of margins.
We will be in touch to confirm her next race plans.
