Sistine Angel managed to overcome her position in barrier 8 and a field of tough competitors to take the 2010 McNeil Stakes in style.
While she started from the rear of the pack when coming down the straight, Sistine Angel was able to close the distance in time to just pip Servant for the win. Intencion ran third, with all the favorites running far behind.
Our own pick Yosei didn’t manage to get her expected place, but she still ran fourth ahead of all the colts that were meant to beat her. Yosei is looking good for a Thousand Guineas run in a few weeks, while the winner Sistine Angel may be contending the Caulfield Guineas.
The full results for the 2010 McNeil Stakes are:
1. Sistine Angel
5. General Truce
8. Willow Creek
