21/02/02 No Mean City in Group One Boilover at Trentham
The Scotty Seamer show has ended in spectacular fashion this afternoon when his mount La Bella Dama failed to beat a runner home in the $100,000 Group One Auto Auctions WFA Double over 1400 metres.

In a major boilover the first and second favourites - Vinaka and La Bella Dama - both finished unplaced behind the bolter No Mean City.

A six-year-old gelding by Star Board, No Mean City won the 1400 metre feature event by a length.

The gelding is trained by little known Te Horo trainer John Kiernan and was ridden to victory by underrated senior rider Damian Browne.

Second home was the third favourite Star Satire (Michael Coleman), while Fritz (Noel Harris) was a further long neck away in third place.

Current champion jockey Lane O'Sullivan failed in his attempt to win another feature race when his favoured mount Vinaka finished some five and a half lengths away in eighth place.

La Bella Dama, a Group One winner of the Mackinnon Stakes at Flemington in November, failed to beat a runner home finishing last in the field of ten, over eight lengths from the winner and two and a half lengths from her closest rival.
