Najoom wins again
16 Apr 2015
Gai Waterhouse knows how to get the best from a Northern Meteor filly as we have seen with Group I winners Amanpour and Cosmic Endeavour and she’ll be winning better races with the one she saddled up to win with a leg in the air at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.
Coming to town for the first time following easy wins at Hawkesbury and Newcastle, Najoom enjoyed a good run just off the pace for Tommy Berry and charged away over the final furlongs to win the 1300 metre contest by four lengths.
With three wins and a second from just four starts and prizemoney topping $70,000, Najoom was a Breednet 'One to Watch' when breaking her maiden back in March and has been flying somewhat under the radar, but can easily make her mark from here in better grades.
Consigned for sale by Willow Park Stud as was dual Group 1 winner Cosmic Endeavour, Najoom was picked up by Emirates Park for $225,000 at the Magic Millions.
She is the second winner for Charlety Star, an unraced sibling by Arena to stakes-winners Upon This Rock, Bhutane Dane and Gaze On from the family of globe-trotting triple Group 1 winner Criterion.
