In a bold tactical display, Josh Parr stole a march on his rivals and hung on from the charging Foxplay in the Group Two TAB Light Finger Stakes.
“Gai, Adrian and myself spoke about it pre-race. She is a two-time Group One winning filly on equal weights (but was) from 1400m back to 1200m. There was only one way we could win the race and that was run it at a true tempo and just try to find a kink in the armour of these fillies that are fresh up,” said an ecstatic Parr.
Global Glamour was bold and brave
So what did Parr think when he glanced across to see Foxplay tearing into his margin as the post loomed?
“I saw Bowman getting ready to go ‘she’s apples’, maybe a race early.”
The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained filly will head towards the Surround Stakes now before tackling the Coolmore Stud Classic.
“As Josh said we were coming back to a distance that isn’t her best but she was just too courageous. “It was very dramatic but she was just too strong for them,” Gai added.
