30/07/02 HOY: Victory Vein the Star Juvenile
r3bedemurray.jpg (8377 bytes)The warm favourite Victory Vein has been crowned the Yallambee Stud Champion Two-Year-Old during the Australian Racing Champions night at Crown Palladium in Melbourne tonight.

The New South Wales based filly, who was beaten in the nation's leading race for juveniles - the Golden Slipper, polled over 77% of the votes to be a runaway winner.

The Blue Diamond Stakes winning Melbourne colt Bel Esprit polled the second most amount of votes (18), but that was well short of Victory Vein (123). The only other horses to gain points from the judges were Lovely Jubly and Calaway Gal (both 9).

Trained by Bede Murray the filly burst on to the scene with a bang, scoring in her racetrack at huge odds and then she coontinued through to become a multiple Group One winner.

A daughter of Mr Henrysee, and out of the Opera Prince mare Protective, Victory Vein had 11 starts during the season for eight wins and two seconds. Her only unraced run came when she finished a 2.7 length fourth to Snowland in the listed Gosford Guineas.

Gunned down late in the race in the Golden Slipper by Calaway Gal, Victory Vein scored Group wins in the Silver Slipper (G2), Magic Night Stakes (G2), AJC Sires' Produce Stakes (G1) and the AJC Champagne Stakes (G1).

During the season Victory Vein met and beat many of the leading juveniles including Calaway Gal, Bel Esprit, Half Hennessy, Choisir, Chuckle, Pillaging and Planchet.


Victory Vein 123 (77.36%)
Bel Esprit 18 (11.32%)
Lovely Jubly 9 (5.66%)
Calaway Gal 9 (5.66%)
