If I just use the first letters of their names the above statements could be written as follows
1. J>C
2. M>P
3. P>J
Now all that is left is to string these statements together appropriately to get the answer.

M>P>J>C. So Melanie has won the race.

Jim beats Catherine and Pet beats Jim then Pet beats Jim and Catherine
Then Melanie beats Pet
Therefore Melanie beats Pet, Jim, and Catherine
