On Saturday the Gai Waterhouse-trained More Strawberries held off a gallant challenge from fellow filly Parables to score victory in the $175,000 Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill.
More Than Ready filly More Strawberries was coming off her maiden victory in the Furious Stakes and scored a second career win in the 2010 Tea Rose Stakes.
Ridden by Jim Cassidy, More Strawberries ($3.10) went to the front of the field early and had the fitness, speed and ability to lead-all-the-way and beat the Peter Snowden-trained Parables ($2F) by a neck with Ambers Waltz ($11) a well beaten third over four lengths further away.
More Strawberries will next head towards the Group 1 Thousand Guineas on October 13, for which she is now the equal $5 favourite with Divorces at Sportsbet.
