Obahma Joy pulled off a last to first win when booming down the outside for harness racing trainer-driver Blake Fitzpatrick to claim Group One glory in the $100,000 Mister Big Alabar NSW Breeders Challenge for the 4YO Mares.

Just like in the semi-final Obahma Joy narrowly downed Whispering Lass, who enjoyed a nice trip and looked to have the race in safe keeping before the four-year-old daughter of American Ideal emerged on to the scene.

Finishing in third was favourite Louvre, who was the winner of both the two-year-old and three-year-old version of this race, but sadly couldn't pull off the three-peat.

For Obahma Joy it was her ninth career win and clearly her biggest to date.
