Allmamoney scores first city win
Apr 03, 2021
Talented three-year-old Allmamoney scored her second win from her first three starts for Pearce Racing when taking out the Crown Towers Handicap (1600m) at the annual Ascot Good Friday meeting yesterday.
Starting as a raging $1.24 favourite after a slashing second to stakes-winning filly Magical Dream at her previous start, Allmamoney brought up the first leg of a winning treble for in-form hoop Clint Johnston-Porter on the day.
The Al Maher filly relished her first attempt at a mile and, after enjoying a perfect run in the one-out, one-back position, she claimed her rivals at the 200m mark before pulling away to win by more than a length.
Powerful Force ($7) finished in second place, with Warcidium ($12) a further three-quarter length away in third.
Allmamoney is yet to miss a top-two finish from her five race starts to date, having now recorded two wins and three runner-up finishes.
Meanwhile, stablemate Dig Deep was desperately unlucky in the feature event on Good Friday, the $100,000 Listed Old Comrade Stakes (1600m), when held up for clear running and flashing late for an eye-catching third placing.
The Pearce stable will saddle-up Policiere in today's $500,000 Group 2 Amelia Park Karrakatta Plate (1200m) at Ascot, with Pletto and Chiclett also engaged in support races on the nine-event card.
