My Bro Fabio simply awesome in Group 1 Temlee victory

MY BRO FABIO has capped off a sensational month of racing, claiming the Group 1 Temlee at The Meadows in a stunning come-from-behind performance.

Exiting from box eight, the son of Turanza Bale and Flamenco surprisingly got away well, sitting behind early leaders Marcus Joe and Chica Destacada, which both began quickly from the inside alleys. Heading into the back straight, notable finisher Awesome Project made his run along the rails, however, My Bro Fabio was looming on the outside of the field and shot away up the home straight to score easily in a fast time of 29.70.

Trainer Brooke Ennis and owner Michelle Jones will share $100,000 in first prizemoney, taking his total to an astounding $469,325. It was the 35kg heavyweight’s 25th career win from start No.48 and his fifth victory from six attempts when exiting from box eight.

My Bro Fabio has firmly stamped his authority as one of the most in-form greyhounds in Australia, having won the Group 1 Perth Cup two weeks ago, also from box eight.

New South Wales sprinter Awesome Project, owned by Brad Canty, was extremely gallant in defeat at big odds and reserve runner Marcus Joe, which gained a start from box one after the scratching of Zipping Willow, ran the race of his life to lead in the early stages and finish third.
