South Pacific Classic, Listed : Randwick - 13th April 2019

Faskia wins South Pacific Classic Listed $150,000 at Randwick, 1400m.

Faskia fought gamely in a packed finish to maintain her unbeaten record. Advancing in class at her third start, she settled outside the leader (Green Aeon), travelling at a solid pace before getting to the front at the 200m.

She then dug deep when challenged to score a narrow but very good win. Toby Edmonds-trained gelding Millard Reaction Horseform, a winner of his only two prior starts at the Gold Coast, settled back in seventh place, got between runners on straightening, took a late split nearing the 100m and finished well for (short head) second.

Wild Planet Horseform settled in fifth place (deep), moved up on straightening, and kept on in dour fashion for a close-up third. Gem Song Horseform raced toward the tail of the field, trapped wide, was under riding as he switched deep on turning for home and kept finishing on well for (0.6 lengths) fourth.
