Jennifer Anderson... an Exhalted Performance

Jennifer Anderson... an Exhalted Performance

We said she was a no-nonsense girl, sensible yet no 'Plain Jane'. We said she was sturdy, good legged... but still classy. Trained by Duncan McKenzie, bred and raced by Backworth, we are thrilled with Exhalted's win over 1000m at Fairview Monday.
