Never one to waste time, Jasmine Cornish turned her first ride back from a suspension into a win when she guided the Les Ross trained Mishani Renegade to an impressive victory in a QTIS Two-Year-Old Handicap over 1000m at Eagle Farm on October 15.

The win saw Mishani Renegade take a big step towards sealing a place in the $2 million Magic Millions Two-year-Old Classic at the Gold Coast in January as this victory added a more than useful boost to the son of Top Echelon’s earnings as he maintained his perfect record with making it two wins from two starts.

When he won on debut over the 1000m at Eagle Farm on October 1, Mishani Renegade, who was easy to back on that occasion at $8.50, raced just worse than midfield in the early part, all of five lengths off the leader, the $2.40 favourite She’s a Rogue.

Things didn’t look any brighter for the Mishani Renegade on straightening, where he had switched out five wide and was momentarily held up as he crossed heels … all of this while still being six lengths off She’s A Rogue who was now knuckling down with meaning, intent on making every post a winning one.

After crossing heels, Jimmy Orman had to straighten Mishani Renegade up again, but now he was in clear air and about to show his worth by producing a stunning display of acceleration.

From seventh place and six lengths back early in the straight … to second place, but still three lengths back with 150m left to run … to mowing down She’s A Rogue in the last stride for a inch perfect win … there was just so much to like about this debut performance.

So it was that there was some sense of expectation when Mishani Renegade stepped out again just two weeks after his debut win … this time with Jasmine Cornish in the saddle with her more than useful 3kg claim.

The run was very much a replica of his first run with Mishani Renegade, the $2.50 favourite, again racing just worse than midfield, this time on the rail some four lengths off the lead.

This time Mishani Renegade had four horses in front of him to deal with on straightening … and, again, his initial effort at the top of the straight suffered minor interference as he raced in close quarters with his stable companion Mishani Metallic ($26).

As with his first start tough, once in clear air and asked to let down by Cornish, Mishani Renegade confirmed all of those positive qualities he shown first-up by again producing a strong, measured finish which ultimately carried him to a half length victory.

This was Jasmine Cornish’s seventh metropolitan win for the season from only 56 rides, coming in at a 12.5 per cent winning strike rate. Her place strike rate is 42.9 per cent … the fourth highest on the metropolitan jockey’s ladder.
