Pear Tart has continued her impressive Brisbane carnival with a win in the Group 1 Tatersall’s Tiara 2012 at Eagle Farm Racecourse today.
The three-year-old proved too good for the older mares as she loomed behind early leader Red Tracer to take out the win.
Skyerush placed second in the 2012 Tattersall’s Tiara, while Gai’s Choice finished in third.
Pear Tart added the Group 1 win to her last start victory in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas at Eagle Farm on June 2.
It was the third Group 1 win for trainer John Thompson, who was there to see his filly cross the line.
“She’s done so well,” Thompson said.
Thompson spoke of her surprise Guineas win in the wet last start.
“She’d had, as everyone knew, an unordinary run into that race with injury etc,” he said.
“The three weeks into it was perfect for her.
“She’s not just a wet tracker she’s just a good filly.”
The trainer was impressed with the ride given to Pear tart by jockey Jeff Lloyd.
“He got her out into a good spot,” Thompson said.
“We drew wide again (14) but she’s a filly that makes her own luck and… he sat outside the leader like he did last time.
“Full credit to the horse, she beat the older horses today in dominant fashion again.”
Pear Tart will now be spelled until the Spring, where she will most likely target races such as the Group 1 Myer Classic in November.
The Dehere filly has now won six of her nine race starts and earned more than $580,000 in prize money.
