Zavite has won the 2011 Ranvet Stakes ahead of Descarado in Race 5 on Coolmore Classic Day at Rosehill Gardens.
The 2,000 metre race was won by the eight-year-old Zavite, who faced the ultimate stayers test; leading from the get-go to hold on to win the Group 1 race.
Zavite began as $101 shot to win the Ranvet Stakes at Luxbet, but ended up taking out the $400,000 race in stellar style.
The Zabeel gelding began brilliantly, pinging from the barrier stalls to take an effortless lead.
Descarado attempted to pull away from him at the home turn, but Zavite fought back and won the 2011 Ranvet Stakes by a short half head.
Gai Waterhouse’s Descarado finished second, while Hawk Island held off favourite Maluckyday for third.
Zavite will now take on The BMW, which will run as part of Golden Slipper Day at Rosehill Gardens on April 2, 2011.
