Savanna Amour kept her love affair with Caulfield going in winning the Group 3 Ladbrokes Odds Boost How Now Stakes. Starting from an outside barrier, Brad Rawiller was happy to allow the daughter of Love Conquers All to go to the front and set a nice tempo. Turning for home she gave a nice kick and was able to hold off a fast finishing wall of horses, to score by a short margin.

"This was a terrific win, as she had to work a bit to get to the front and then had to hold off some pretty good horses on the line. She is the type of horse that always gives her best and has always tried her heart out, this race being no exception. We were a bit disappointed that she drew so wide going into the race and just said to Brad to go forward and see what happens. It pays to have riders with his experience on board, as he summed things up quickly once they jumped and rated her perfectly in front. A big congratulations to the team of owners, led by Grant Morgan of Ontrack Thoroughbreds, who had no hesitation in supporting me and I am very happy to be able to repay them for their confidence. This was our first winner from the Mornington stable and with the staff and support we have I am confident we can build on it from here ." Commented Chris Meagher
