The 2011 Let’s Elope Stakes proved to be an absolute cracker with all of the big names looking like a winning chance at some point in the race but only one of them having the gas for the full 1400m.
That was Pinker Pinker, the Greg Eurell trained runner pulling out off a perfect settling position to hold her position in a long sprint to the line.
The pace was far from electric early on, although it was hot enough to ensure there shouldn’t be too many trainers left with excuses.
In her start before this one Pinker Pinker also picked up a good spot but she was left flat footed and stagnant when a run presented itself.
Not this time though, she drove through a gap to take up the lead a fair way form home and showed plenty of guts to get to the line.
Chasing hard was Mid Summer Music, the Peter Snowden runner almost grabbing har fifth win of this prep but not quite almost half a length away.
Parables placed once more as well, she was forced three wide around the bend and that seemed to just sap a bit out of her as she ran one paced across the final 200m.
It was good enough do third though, almost two lengths ahead of Lady Lynette in fourth.
In terms of some disappointing results in the 2011 Let’s Elope Stakes you can’t go past Brazilian Pulse.
The former Group 1 champion appears shot with a last placed finish more than 13 lengths away from the winners.
Biancon Rose is another, she crossed in ninth bringing to an end her run on an impressive current campaign.
Pinker Pinker was a handy pickup for punters on Luxbet, a nice payout for a horse with known ability as she finds her feet in the new season.
