The Robert Britton- trained Above All has put in a breathtaking performance to claim this year’s Group One Hobart Thousand, defeating an outstanding young field in the process.
The son of Magic Sprite and Kara Janx was the standout heat winner last Thursday, coming from last early to surge clear in a time of 26.16 over the 461 metre trip.
With a better beginning from box five this week, the black powerhouse showed everyone what he is really capable of when getting on the bunny, obliterating the field to score by seven lengths in a phenomenal 25.52.
The airborne time broke the existing 25.64 track record which was set by Paw Licking when he won the same race last year.
Above All defeated the Kelly Bravo- trained Ride The Rails with Melbourne Cup hero Dyna Villa filling the trifecta back in third.
Above All has now won eight races from just 13 career starts with over $105,000 in prize money earnings.
He is now expected to take his place in a heat of the Group One Silver Chief on Saturday night where he has drawn box one in race five.
