Zaveena Gets Her Just 'Desserts' By Scoring At Gosford

Hawkesbury mare Zaveena and Gosford Racecourse go together like peaches and cream! Trainer Jason Clisby was true to his recent word and took Zaveena back there on Tuesday – and she maintained her unbeaten record at the Central Coast track.

All her three wins have been over the 2100m, and she has been at nice odds on each occasion. The one difference this time was that apprentice Blaike McDougall had the mount in the Benchmark 60 Handicap.

It proved a master stroke by Clisby as she probably would not have won without his 1.5kg claim, which lessened her weight to 57kg. As it was, the five-year-old daughter of Nadeem got there only in the last couple of bounds.

Starting at $7, Zaveena began closing on the trio of leaders approaching the home turn and just edged out As Good As It Gets ($4.40).

Zaveena first raced at Gosford when successful in a Benchmark 63 Handicap on October 27 last year when a $9 chance.

She did not race again there until March 31 when she again finished stoutly to land a Benchmark 65 Handicap. Senior jockey Grant Buckley partnered her in both victories.

Clisby announced after the March 31 race that he would take his mare back to Gosford for Tuesday’s assignment. In spite of that and the fact Zaveena dropped a little in class – though obviously she had to cope with a 3kg weight increase – she still went to the post at an attractive quote.

No doubt Clisby will be scanning future Gosford programs searching for another suitable target for Zaveena.
