    EXCITING filly Jaxnme will be given an easy week before being readied for another Group One campaign.

    Winner of a Vicbred Super Series Final at Tabcorp Park Melton just moments ago, Jaxnme’s pending target is the Australasian Breeders’ Crown.

    The futurity is scheduled to be conducted next month.

    “I will give her a week off now,” trainer Russell Jack said. “It will give her a chance to freshen up again before the Breeders’ Crown in five or six weeks.

    “That will see her out for the season and hopefully she can head for a decent spell on a winning note.

    “She’s already done a top job with tonight being her second Group One win from only a handful of starts.”

    Driven by master reinsman Gavin Lang, Jaxnme began quickly to lead from barrier three as The Best Dream worked on her outside.

    Fending off the initial challenge on the home turn, the daughter of Andover Hall was set to be challenged by Im Ready Jet along the sprint lane before the latter broke and lost all chance.

    As such Jaxnme was untouched to score by six-and-a-half metres from The Best Dream, with Pink Galahs nine metres away third.

    “I was very confident with her before the race and once she found the front I didn’t think they would run her down,” Jack said.

    “It may have gotten interesting if the other one hadn’t broken in the sprint lane, but Gavin hadn’t really gone for her either.”

    Bred and owned by Graeme Love, Debbie Jack and Brocq Robertson, the two-year-old stretched her record to four wins and a debut third from five starts for earnings of $86,200.
