TRIPLE ASSET DOES IT AGAIN
Confidently ridden by hometown rider Dwayne Dunn, Triple Asset sat just behind the leader before sweeping upon the lead and racing clear for the easiest of wins.
Winning trainer John Keys was thrilled with the win - the third feature victory for the filly from her past three starts - all in different states.
"It's been a big effort from the little girl to do what she's done, covering the miles that she has and still to be at the top of her game," Keys reported.
The youngster is a real professional according to connections - she settled in well to her temporary home at the stables of local trainer Joe Lockyer.
"The first night she was very good. Last night she didn't eat everything, but she's just a tough little filly."
"She's a beauty this one," Keys added when saying the filly earned some time off after a wonderful and highly profitable campaign.
"She's so professional and has been since day one. She can have a rest now."
"She'll head to the paddock and have a couple of months off and then she'll come back for the spring carnival."
In today's race Triple Asset steamed clear of her rivals in the straight to beat early leader Win for Wilson by a widening three length margin.
Gone Skiing, one of two runners in the race for Rick Hore-Lacy, ran third, a place ahead of another Tasmanian runner More Awesome.
A graduate of the Whishaw family's Armidale Stud, Triple Asset was purchased by connections for $28,000 at last year's Magic Millions Tasmanian Yearling Sale at the Inveresk Showgrounds.
As it stands she has already won her jubilant connections over $260,000 - and now being a twice group winning filly it makes her an extremely valuable commodity.
Triple Asset, a daughter of Blue Diamond Stakes winner Nadeem, is now the winner of four of her seven starts.
Yet to miss a place in her career, Triple Asset is one of two winners produced by the twice Brisbane placed Hennessy mare Caralowe.
Caralowe is a half sister to the winning and stakes placed Redoute's Choice mare Bold Selection.
Further back hers is the same family as Golden Slipper winning sire Marauding and fellow stakes winners Springsteen, Latin News, Voodoo Beat and Biscalowe.
