New South Wales-bred pacer Regal Scribe, described by his trainer Nathan Turvey as a funny horse who seems lethargic when driven anywhere else apart from in the breeze, showed his liking for racing without cover when he won the 2130m Retravision, 60 Day Price Promise Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

“He needs to be driven tough,” said Turvey when assessing the six-year-old’s prospects.

Regal Scribe, driven by Emily Suvaljko, was the $2.90 equal favourite from barrier four, and Suvaljko dashed him forward to sit in the breeze outside the other $2.90 chance The Notorious One.

Suvaljko was happy to remain in the breeze, and when Callan Suvaljko was unable to drive out The Notorious One when he was hanging in badly, Emily dashed Regal Scribe to the front 300m from home.    

Regal Scribe then showed good fighting qualities to hold $6.50 chance Tiger Royal at bay when he issued a spirited challenge in the home straight after enjoying an ideal passage in the one-out, one-back position. The winning margin was a neck, with Regal Scribe notching his first win in WA at his sixth start in the State.   

Regal Scribe, a son of Sportswriter, came to WA after a successful career of 15 wins and nine placings from 38 starts in South Australia.
