Brazilian Pulse has won the 2010 VRC Crown Oaks with ease, taking it over Shamrocker in a tremendous run home.
This was a hard feat for Brazilian Pulse, who had already won a grueling 2000 metre run in the Wakeful Stakes on Saturday. Her lack of experience on soft tracks was also a worry coming into the Crown Oaks today, but it turns out she is just too classy to fail right now.
Shamrocker improved greatly on her fifteenth place finish in the Wakeful Stakes by coming a well-earned second in the 2010 VRC Crown Oaks. She gave it her all to try to snatch the victory from Brazilian Pulse, but it just wasn’t in her.
Placement did not live up to expectations with her third place finish. She’s had more experience at longer distances and more experience on heavy tracks, yet she has not been able to do more than place. To be fair, it seemed unlikely that she’d score her maiden win in the Crown Oaks, but her form suggested she should have at least come ahead of Shamrocker.
