The speedy Zoom By showed great pace to cross from the outside barrier and go on to win by one length over Fish N Snitz who was scratched from a race in Sydney on day 2 of the Championships to stay home and contest this race.

The win by Zoom By was of some consolation to the Scott McAlpine of Eureka Stud after the mother of Zoom By, Zippast passed away on Wednesday after a long and successful career at stud. 

After showing great gate speed at Gatton the step up to city class was no problem to Zoom By when she pinged the gates again to lead easily and clearly early by 1.5 lengths.

The fast, early pace helped to string the field out before they began to bunch as they went by the 600 metre marker. 

When she passed the 400 metre point Ronnie Stewart had Zoom By around three lengths clear and they maintained this momentum up the straight under what was basically confident hands and heels riding by Stewart to win by one length.

Zoom By looks to have a bright future ahead of her as the barriers are of little importance when you can begin as brilliantly as she does and back it up with great determination and a will to win.

Congratulations to Eureka Stud and the McAlpine family on the win by Zoom By.

On this occasion Zoom By was strapped by Donna Fisher.
