Progressive four-year-old Roman Flirt scored her third consecutive win at Pinjarra on Sunday when taking out the Murray Veterinary Services Handicap (2000m) in fine style.
The Roman Emperor mare was having her first start beyond 1675m and her first on a Soft7-rated track, however, she handled the conditions with aplomb when scoring by more than two lengths.
Starting the $2.90 race favourite, she was perfectly positioned in the box seat by champion jockey William Pike before taking an inside run on straightening and careering away to a strong victory.
Twentythree Red ($7) finished in second place, with Quintaro ($21) a further head away in third.
Roman Flirt has now recorded three wins and four runner-up finishes from her nine race starts to date.
Meanwhile, The Pearce stable saddled-up three runners at Monday’s Northam meeting, returning a win and two second placings.
