Patronize gelding Superior Smile scored his fourth win with a fast-finishing effort at Pinjarra on Wednesday.
Aided by a clever ride by in-form apprentice Tayla Stone, the $5.90 proposition settled three-back on the fence before peeling to the middle of the track upon straightening and hitting the front at the 50m mark.
Four White Fox ($4.40) rattled home from 11th position at the turn to finish a head second, with High Tea ($16.60) a further head away in third place.
The win was Superior Smile’s second from his seven-start preparation to date and takes his race record to 15 starts for four wins and four minor placings.
The three-year-old has now banked in excess of $70,000 in stake-money and Westspeed bonuses for connections.
Stablemates Vital Silver and Pushin’ Shapes, both last-start runners-up in their respective races, are engaged to race at the first Belmont meeting of 2018 this Saturday.
Gingerbread Man two-year-old Essential Spice, an impressive Lark Hill trial winner on Monday, is scheduled to make her race debut on the same card.
