Broadway Harmony wasn’t the only Eliza Park ‘cheer on’ at Moonee Valley last Friday (19 March) with True Persuasion racing away to a 3.5 length victory in the $80,000 Pulse Pharmacy Handicap (1200m) later in the evening.
The son of Bel Esprit, bred and raced by Marion Smart, has now won almost a quarter million in stakes from his three wins and four placings (nine starts overall) and, according to ANZ Bloodstock News, is right up to black type competition.
True Persuasion scored a big win here, used up to settled third one out one back before taking control of the race well before the turn to sprint away in the straight to score a big win. Charbet battled on for well beaten second but the winner was far too good. He should be able to step up to stakes company on the back of this big win tonight.
