Our Jimmie too good in SA Derby

Drawing barrier two, Our Jimmie (Big Jim) was able to boot through and hold the front after some initial challenges.

From there Anthony Butt drove a great race and Our Jimmie was never headed. Sprinting home in 28 flat, he won by 7.2 metres over stablemate King Solomon.

Jilliby Road Runner (Roll With Joe) ran a good race to finish third after a tough run in the breeze.

For Our Jimmie this was his seventh win from eight starts in Australia and takes his earnings to $54,540.

Bred and raced by Paul Walton and Helen Conaghan, Our Jimmie is the fifth live foal of the Our Sir Vancelot mare Trinity College.
