with well-bred mare Lass Of the Manor when she scored a game win in the opening race at Tapeta Park Spreyton today.

Lass Of The Manor had decent form going into the race but was sent out a $7 chance due the weight of money for the favourite Gee Gee Cry Baby.

With New Caledonia-born apprentice Audrey Guillemin aboard, the five-year-old Royal Academy mare settled second behind Gee Gee Cry Baby (Craig Newitt) but when the pair settled down to a two-horse war in the home straight it was Guillemin’s strong riding that ensured her charge had the better of the favourite on the line.
