Cymbalism scored her fourth career win when holding off the odds on favourite in the 1350m Bay Building Services Class 3 Plate at Doomben. Rider, Tegan Harrison, was able to work across the field to lead and then rate the mare to perfection to score by a solid long neck.
"It was nice to see her win another race in town, as it will enhance her broodmare value. She is a funny thing, as she just likes to bowl along and be left alone in races and really does not show her best when cluttered up. As she has been up for a while, we found that she just did not have the dash over 1200m, so stepping up to the 1350m with a slower early pace enable Tegan to get her a comfortable lead and rate her. Tegan is an excellent on pace rider, so once she got to the front I was pretty confident she would get the chocolates. Congratulations to the Ontrack Team and all the owners. Also thanks to Andy (Kermond) and all the team in Brisbane, who continue to do an enormous job."Commented Chris Meagher
