Open Minded stepped up to BM78 grade in the Sale Quality today, and dominated from barrier to post.
After a tough win last start at Caulfield, the successful tactics of leading were again employed, with devastating success.
Open Minded lead the field out from the barrier and held a length margin down the side from the shute, with his rivals waiting for the long straight to make their challenges.
As they turned for home Damien Thornton asked Jimmy to lengthen stride and he quickly put a couple of lengths on his rivals, and held them comfortably at bay down the long straight winning in fine style by 2.25 lengths and stopping the clock at 1.08.99s for the 1200m.
Jimmy has put together an impressive record of 5 wins from his first 10 starts, and deserves another crack at Saturday metro class!
