Four-year-old mare Suing You, a beaten $1.10 favourite at Wagin a week earlier, was unwanted from the coveted No. 1 barrier in the $19,000 Etch Coatings Professional Powder Coating Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

She was a $16 chance when part-owner and trainer-reinsman Shane Young drove her to an easy all-the-way win from Delightfull ($4.20) and Sheez Our Hope ($2.65 favourite) in the 2130m event restricted to mares.

“She was unlucky at Wagin the previous Friday when she drew barrier one and was crossed at the start by the speedy Sammys Ideal, and then she never got a look in when a close third behind Another Vinnie,” said Young.

“At her previous start a fortnight earlier she locked wheels, broke and was retired in the first lap in a race at Gloucester Park.

“However, I didn’t expect to have such a comfortable time when leading tonight. I thought I could hold the lead early and then one of the fancied runners would come and have a crack for the lead. But they all went back at the start, and I had a soft lead (38.4sec.) and a soft first quarter (31sec.). So, after that Suing You was always in control of the race.”

Suing You, by Alta Christiano, is out of Tiger Su, who won once from 11 starts in New Zealand before racing nine times in WA for three wins and two placings.

Tiger Su’s dam Tigerish amassed $491,957 in prizemoney from 15 wins and 21 placings from 79 starts. She won three group 1 events and three group 2 features in New Zealand. Suing You now has earned $96,752 from 11 wins and seven placings from 40 starts.
