Racing news Jameka wins the G1 The BMW at Rosehill
“I mightn’t get the same rider (in the Queen Elizabeth) but it was a beautiful ride from Hughie (Bowman) today.
In the space of seven days Bowman has had the pleasure of throwing a leg over the two best mares in the country, Winx and Jameka, and riding both to a G1 victory.
That’s if Jameka’s trainer Ciaron Maher decides to pit his mare against the horse rated equal as the world’s best.
It’s like having supermodel Kate Upton and actress Margot Robbie on speed dial, what more could a bloke ask for?
We’ll just let the dust settle and see how she pulls up but she’s in super form.”Super form is an understatement.

Ciaron Maher will take on the world with Jameka but admits he doesn’t know where she could take him, “maybe even an Arc [de Triomphe]”.
Jameka joined Ethereal, Might And Power and Hayai as Caulfield Cup winners to back up and win The BMW and it had been a long-held goal for Maher.
Maher got a ride to match his planning from Hugh Bowman, who never panicked when Lasqueti Spirit got clear midrace.
“We have definitely been thinking about it for while, it has been out there,” Maher said.
There are plenty of races over there for her and it would be dream if she could get to an Arc.”
