The superbly bred Pensato has relished the step out to 1800 metres at start number five to take out the Kennedy Oaks Trial at Flemington on September 23.

A full sister to five-time group one winning champion Pierro as well as a half-sister to the 2015 Wakeful Stakes winner Ambience, Pensato rolled forward early under jockey John Allen and sustained a strong sprint late to record a comfortable win on the line.

Godolphin representative Sean Keogh spoke with Racing.com following Wednesday's win.

"We found a nice trip for her and we always knew she had a nice turn of foot," Keogh said.

"She's impeccably bred and whether she had the lungs to stay was a bit of a question mark coming in today so she's ticked that box.

"James (Cummings) can decide where she's at but I think she'll be well suited to ten-furlong races."
The Kennedy Oaks Trial has been a good guide for the VRC Oaks in recent years (Pensato currently $13 for this feature with Sportsbet) with Pinot completing the double in 2017 and in 2018, Greysful Glamour took out the Oaks Trial before running second to Aristia in the Group One Oaks.

This victory will also be music to the ears for James Harron Bloodstock who purchased Right Chord (an unraced full sister to Pierro) for $1,050,000 at the 2020 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale.
