Party packs too many tricks for opposition
Sep 21, 2012
Developing stayer Party Tricks overcame a near-disaster to break her maiden in terrific fashion in the Brothers Football Club Maiden (2150m) at Ipswich.
Party Tricks went into the $12,000 event after a minor placing over a mile at her last start to her name before the mare relished the extra ground at Ipswich.
Apprentice Tegan Harrison settled the five-year-old in the perfect position, just off the speed on the rail, while the front-runner set a moderate tempo up front.
Disaster nearly struck Party Tricks at the 750 metres when the daughter of Stromberg Carlson clipped heels, almost dislodging Harrison and shunting the pair back to the tail of the field.
The four-year-old recovered her stride and began to recover the lost ground from the 600 metres.
Party Tricks made good ground along the inside fence rounding the home turn to be within striking distance at the 250 metres.
Harrison got the best out of Party Tricks in the straight to guide her to what turned out to be a comfortable 1-1/4 length win to break her maiden at her fifth start.
Party Tricks provided Bruce Hill Racing with its ninth victory for the season.
The mare’s latest win took her prizemoney to more than $11,000 with the promise of plenty more to come for Party Tricks as she moves through the Queensland staying ranks.
Congratulations to Party Tricks’s owner – Chris Kaa.
