It was one of the best performances seen on the Hobart circuit and clearly the best of his age group.
Jerrys Jet was worse than midfield in the three-wide train in the back straight the last time and he was still near last and five-wide turning for home.
The leader Mister Lennox () kicked clear at the top of the straight and looked to have a winning break but Boasson Hagen and Jerrys Jet knuckled down to their task at the business end of the race.
Boasson Hagen () began his move three-wide at the bell and he was responsible for keeping Jerrys Jet in a pocket when the favourite was trying to get into the three-wide line.
Boasson Hagen (-Allsorosie) was first to issue a serious challenge to the leader in the straight and he looked set to win close to home until Jerrys Jet arrived on the scene to snatch victory in the very last stride.
Jerrys Jet (-Laagirl) is trained by and owned by his breeders Charlie and Connie Beadman.
The win kept Jerrys Jet's unbeaten record from four starts intact and both trainer and owners were ecstatic after the race.
The gelding scored by a short half-head with Boasson Hagen and New Zealand-bred Mister Lennox (-Tuapeka Osprey) dead-heating for second but a protest lodged by Salter claiming interference in the home straight was upheld giving Boasson Hagen outright second place.
Jerrys Jet will have a couple of days off and is likely to resume racing in a heat of the Dandy Patch sires stakes series in Hobart next month with the final on July 6.
Listen to what trainerand owner-breeder Charlie Beadman had to say about Jerrys Jet's Sweepstakes win.
