Consistent mare SKATE TO PARIS registered her fourth career victory en route to a return to Stakes grade with a thrilling win at Doomben yesterday.
The Bradbury’s Luck mare was given a brilliant ride by apprentice Baylee Nothdurft, who saved ground along the inside before threading the needle in the straight to edge SKATE TO PARIS into the clear and score a narrow victory.
The win took her prizemoney earnings past the $300,000 mark ahead of her upcoming target races – the Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic on Ipswich Cup day (June 15) before the Listed Glasshouse Hcp at the Sunshine Coast on June 29.
Congratulations to her owners: Mr D J Watkins, Mr M C Brownrigg, Mr R B Armstrong, Miss H A Douglas, Mr G P Brownrigg, Mrs S Toparis, Mr S C Cassady, Mr A M Balzer, Mr C J Gillie, Mr P E Makowiecki, Miss S I Watkins, Mr D Toparis
