Screen won the 2011 Golden Pendant at Rosehill Racecourse on Saturday September 24, 2011, in a narrow victory ahead of Gybe.
The five-year-old mare won the $250,000 race in a photo finish that featured second place-getter Gybe, while Ofcourseican ran home for third.
It was the third win of the day for jockey Christian Reith, who had also won aboard John O’Shea’s Big Time and John Thompson’s Renewed Vitality.
“I was pretty confident I had won but it was pretty close,” Reith said.
“It’s been a good day.”
Trainer Peter Snowden’s stable foreman, Brad Widdup, was thrilled Screen was able to win her first Group 3 race.
“I thought we got there but when you wait that long for the result you start to worry,” Widdup said.
“Screen was always going to be a stakes mare and it’s good she got the win today.
“She had a great run in the race and found the line well.
“It’s been a great day, we’ve had two stakes wins here and it was a big relief we saw the real Helmet in Melbourne.”
