Arms Of An Angel produced a simply breathtaking performance to win the Group Two Hondo Grattan Stakes at Menangle.
Beginning from barrier ten, the daughter of Elsu shot to the front during a sizzling first quarter of 25.6!
From there she ran them along and nothing else could get into the race. Sprinting home in 27.4, Arms Of An Angel held off all challengers and won in 1:50.7.
The win now ensures her a start in the Chariots Of Fire and she will no doubt start amongst the favourites.
Bred by Tony Armstrong, Arms Of An Angel is out of the Courage Under Fire mare Pomis Princess and thus bred on the Falcon Seelster / Direct Scooter cross.
