One Act Affair

Talented three year old filly Sista Act added $76,950 to her prize money when winning the QTIS 3yo handicap over 1000m at the Sunshine Coast after starting from barrier 12.

In a race which looked on paper to contain horses with good speed nothing could hold out Sista Act when Ronnie Stewart put the cat amongst the pigeons pressing the go button early on to have Sista Act over on the fence leading after 300 metres.

Once in the lead Sista Act controlled the race with many horse caught out wide behind her because the race did not unfold as they had expected it too.

As the approached the turn Stewart looked to have plenty if horse underneath him before sneaking a look over his shoulder on straightening.

Passing the 200 metre point Sista Act was a length clear from Paradise Imperial before increasing the margin to win by a convincing three lengths over Umberto.

Congratulations to Syndicator Drew Irwin and his happy group of owners Mr D C Irwin, Mr J Irwin, Mr P Munro, Mr J Howson, Mr T Howson, Mr K R Hill, Mr B Gordon, Mr L Fish, Mr T Newton & Mr W C Clark.

Having only been out of a place once in five starts over 1000m Sista Act is building an impressive race record along with prize money which is now $154,850.

On this occasion Sista Act was strapped by Jan Aitkenhead.
