JAMI LADY secured her first black-type success in emphatic style at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The grey mare had previously been stakes placed but won the $125,000 Listed Bright Shadow Stakes in no uncertain terms, dictating from the front and giving nothing else a look in.

JAMI LADY crossed the wire with a comfortable 2.3 lengths in hand, posting her seventh career win from 19 starts in the process.

Trainer Steve O’Dea said if ever a horse deserved a stakes win beside her name it was JAMI LADY.

“She has been so consistent and always puts in,” O’Dea told Sky Racing.

“I have always felt that she would be best when she could take a sit. But as she has matured she has been able to lead if need be as you saw today.”

The daughter of SPIRIT OF BOOM will look to enhance her already impeccable record in two weeks’ time when she lines up in the Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic at Ipswich on July 18.

“It will see whether she can win past 1200m in the 1350m of that race. If she can it opens up opportunities for her.”

Jockey Boris Thornton won his third stakes race in Queensland and fourth overall with JAMI LADY’s victory.

“She is a quality mare and can win in better races,” he said.

The result elevated SPIRIT OF BOOM’s stakes winner tally to 12 from his first three crops.
