Advancing years is not diminishing the will to win or dulling the enthusiasm of Angel In White, who is enjoying her best season as an eight-year-old.

Starting favourite at $1.90, Angel In White got straight to the front from the coveted No. 1 barrier in the 2130m Aaron Bain Racing Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night, and after a slow lead time of 39.4sec. and opening quarters of 30.5sec. and 29.8sec., she sprinted over the final 400m sections in 28.7sec. and 27.9sec. to hold on and win by a neck from the $2.60 second fancy Dominus Factum.

Dominus Factum started from barrier two and was restrained by Aiden de Campo to take the sit behind Angel In White. The four-year-old Dominus Factum maintained his excellent form by running home determinedly to just fail to overhaul the pacemaker.

Angel In White is owned and trained by Shane Tognolini, and this was her sixth win as an eight-year-old. She has now earned $179,943 from 15 wins and 19 placings from 79 starts. She is by American sire Santanna Blue Chip and is the fourth foal out of the Christian Cullen mare Whitewash, who was unplaced at her five starts before being retired.
