St Leonards trainer Henry Dwyer and Geelong jockey Damien Thornton partnered Paris Rock to a win on debut.
The three-year-old filly scored by 0.75 lengths to kick off her career with a victory, impressing enough to suggest there’s a promising career ahead.
“She’s always been a nice sort of filly, we just had a few sort of issues with her in that she ties up badly,” Dywer said.
“We’ve had her down at St Leonards the last six weeks and she lives in a paddock down there, so she can walk around all day and doesn’t get that lactic acid build-up. It’s been a real win for her.
“She’s open to a fair bit of improvement.”
