“Rosie Cristalle cashes in on interference-free run to win her maiden”
Patience paid off this evening for Nambeelup trainer Phil Worthington when pint-sized bitch Rosie Cristalle scored over 405m. The 25kg daughter of Kinloch Brae had struck severe trouble at her last four starts at the Mandurah track resulting in just one minor placing. Tonight from box one she drove through to be third at the first turn before over-powering the likes of Blue Diablo and Zipping Ginger in the home straight. The Glen Price trained Zipping Ginger finished second ahead of Blue Diablo who had led for most of the journey. Rosie Cristalle had only managed three minor placings from her first eleven career starts but with tonight’s confidence boost is sure to handle the rise to graded company. Worthington has recently been winning plenty of races with star 302m Thursday night performer Kaos Be Cool. In the past he has put the polish on handy types Sin City Girl, Beaufort Bomber, Calahan Rocks, Dumb Bullett, Dibley, Magic Mundy and Silly Sonia.
