Fast Start Paves the Way for Tiffany Rose
Three-year-old filly Tiffany Rose returned to her best form at her third appearance after a spell when she revealed sparkling gate speed from barrier eight before setting the pace and scoring an easy victory in the 2130m Retravision, 50 Months Interest Free Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.
Trained by Mike Reed and driven by his son Mark, Tiffany Rose was third favourite at $4.40 and she enjoyed a comfortable lead time of 38sec. and opening quarters of 30.2sec. and 29.8sec. before dashing over the final quarters in 28.6sec. and 29.1sec. to win by just under two lengths from $20 chance Miss Eerie.
The consistent Star Fromthepalace ($3.20) raced in the breeze and fought on gamely to finish third, with the $3 favourite Misstiano battling on to dead-heat for fourth place with Fifty Five Reborn.
The New Zealand-bred Tiffany Rose has been a handy performer, with her 26 starts producing nine wins and ten placings for earnings of $149,148.
