Tropezina Dashes To Another City Victory

Racing Online - Horse Racing News - Tropezina Dashes To Another City Victory

Free-running filly has continued her unbeaten preparation in the at and will now be given the chance to a valuable stakes win.

The Henry Dwyer-trained Tropezina was sent out a $7.50 chance in Saturday's $250,000 sales-restricted race for three-year-olds after posting back-to-back wins at and over 1000m this summer.

With aboard, Tropezina bounced to the front in Saturday's 1100m straight-track sprint and after giving a good kick inside the final 300m the filly held on to defeat the fast-closing Beerz With Clint ($6.50) by a head.

Stakes winner ($19) also hit the line well for third, another half-length away.

“I was just worried about her stepping up that extra 100 metres to 1100 but she was able to contain her speed early and went through the first couple of furlongs nicely with her head down in a nice rhythm,” Melham said.

“That certainly enabled her to finish well.

“She doesn't want much further but she was able to get the job done today in a good prize money race.”

Tropezina will have to stretch her brilliance out a little further at her next start, with Dwyer planning to give the sprinter a crack at the Group Three (1200m) for three-year-old fillies at Caulfield in three weeks.
