It was a locals’ cup on Saturday 9 July when Jasmine Cornish rode Lemon Duchess for her 101st win in the $30,000 Beaudesert Cup.

Trained by Cornish’s father, Greg Cornish, the four year old mare led all the way for a close win with only 0.2 lengths separating her from second place getter, Azarmin, trained by Gold Coast based Kris Lees.

Earlier in the day, Jasmine achieved her 100th win on the Les Ross trained Alert State in Race Two.

The Beaudesert Cup was Cornish’s sixth win on Lemon Duchess, a horse she says she knows inside out and backwards.

“She likes to be out in front and have it her way,” said Jasmine.

“She is not the easiest horse to get along with, but if she gets things her way she never seems to give up.”

Still an apprentice, Jasmine’s first race ride was on 25 April 2021 and she has already outridden her weight claim in the country. 

Greg Cornish said having over 100 wins in just over a year is a great achievement.

Jasmine is currently ranked sixth on the Queensland Jockey’s Premiership table for the 2021/22 season.
