Quality mare Wainui Creek completed a hat-trick of wins when she overcame the disadvantage of starting from the outside barrier (No. 9) on the front line and scoring an impressive victory in the $22,000 Rock N Roll World Standing at Cobbitty Equine NSW Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Star reinsman Ryan Warwick was rewarded for driving the Greg and Skye Bond-trained Waiunui Creek as the best mare in the 2130m event in which she settled down in eighth position before Warwick set her alight 400m after the start. Wainui Creek surged forward to race outside the $1.90 favourite Alta Louisa, who took the lead after 500m.

Wainui Creek got to the front 50m from the post, and she fought on grandly to beat the $3.90 second fancy Star Of Diamonds by a head after that mare had sustained a powerful three-wide burst from sixth at the bell.

Wainui Creek, the best-performed runner in the 2130m event, started at the generous price of $8.30 despite winning at four of her previous five starts, including commanding victories at her two previous outings. Many punters obviously disregarded her as a winning prospect because of the wide draw.

A winner of six races in New Zealand, Wainui Creek, a daughter of champion sire Bettors Delight, has now earned $306,856 from 14 wins and 14 placings from 43 starts. Her 18 starts for the Bonds in WA have produced eight wins and two placings.
