    PROMINENT horseman Jason Lee is hoping Aldebaran Vera’s soft win in the IRT Carlotta’s Pride Trotters Free For All at Melton on Saturday night will extend her career on the racetrack.

    Lee wasted little time in wresting the lead off Shesawish with a lap to travel and proceeded to reel off a 28-second back straight quarter before finishing off with a 28.8 last 400 metres.

    Aldebaran Vera ($4) coasted to the line holding a four metre advantage over Rockinwithattitude with Revelstoke three metres away third.

    “We missed out on the bit of a speed burn early which was good and then we just popped around after they had done a bit of work and had a look and Greg (Sugars) came looking, but fair enough we were racing,” Lee said

    “We got out on our own and she got a bit lost, got a bit lonely but she was good and got the job done,” he said.

    Lee believes Aldebaran Vera is a better racehorse with a sit.

    “She’s always been better from behind, even as a young horse she should have had a couple of Group 1s beside her name but she didn’t like being in front or left alone in front- she’s certainly got a motor,” he said.

    The impeccably bred daughter of Kyvalley Aldebaran is owned by the leading Swedish nursery Boko Stables and is leased by the Levarg Racing Group.

    “Hopefully we can talk the connections into not wanting to breed from her at the end of the season but we’ll just race her through till then,” he said.

    David Miles would have been thrilled with the return to the race track of his multiple Group One winning mare Rockinwithattitude who ran on strongly from back in the field at her first run back from a spell.

    Rockinwithattitude will now head north to for another tilt at the $150,000 The Great Square at Albion Park.

    The daughter of Aldebaran Eagle finished fourth in the race last year before snaring both the Queensland Trotters Derby and Oaks.
