Black Type for Parthesia

Parthesia made her trip down to Tassie all the worthwhile on Sunday when she got her breakthrough win this preparation and her first taste of black-type success in the Listed $100,000 Tasmanian Oaks at Launceston. After being sent to the paddock following her maiden victory at Horsham back in October she returned to the races at the start of 2017 with a 9th placing at Sandown, but as she continued to take improvement from her racing and rising up in distance she was right on target for the 2100m event on Sunday, at her fifth run back. With Damian Lane on board she drifted back after the start to settle in a midfield position on the fence. As she got off the rail, Damian angled her into the clear at the top of the straight and with a storming turn of foot she ran down the odds on favourite Hot Dipped to score by nearly half a length. It was a terrific staying performance by the filly, congratulations to everyone involved!
