Just Believe, a member of Orlando Vici’s first crop of Australian foals, extended his winning run by take out the G1 $250,000 feature grand final at Melton on Saturday night.

The six-year-old went through the Inter Dominion series unbeaten - winning all three heats in the space of eight days before achieving the ultimate success.

Third in last year’s ID final, Just Believe has gone from strength-to-strength since joining the stable of Jess Tubbs and Greg Sugars early this season.

He has had seven wins and three seconds in 10 starts and added $278,930 in stakes to take his lifetime record to 15 wins in 51 starts for $393,863.

Just Believe was bred by Yabby Dam Farms, and is raced on lease from YDF by the Iona Trotter Syndicate.
