Well done to Queenslander, Marylee Trivett, whose homebred – God’s Cobba – flew home for a resounding victory in the McGrath Plate over 1400m at the Gold Coast today.
Coming from well back on the turn on a slow track, God’s Cobba ploughed through to notch up his first win after finishing third on debut on 26 March.
Trained by Peter Tennant, who purchased the God’s Own 3YO for $35,000 at the 2009 Gold Coast Magic Millions, God’s Cobba is from the Zabeel mare, Zacobba, a granddaughter of the mighty mare Analie.
She was some racehorse that Analie: in 1973 she won the Doncaster, AJC Oaks, The Metropolitan, Queensland Derby and Oaks – all Group Ones – along with the Craven Plate, Canterbury Cup, STC Cup and Barnes Stakes.
At stud, she would go on to produce Blue Diamond Stakes-G1 winner Aare, a half sister to Zacobba’s dam Tasteful.
