One of Sydney’s most consistent racehorses, Sweet Deal, earned richly deserved black type when proving too tough in the $160,000 Group 3 Yarraman Park Tibbie Stakes (1400m) at Newcastle.
The John Thompson-trained daughter of Casino Prince made it seven wins and eight placings from 28 starts when giving her trainer his second win in the race in the past three years, joining Zanbagh on the honour roll.
“She’s going super. She really deserved that,” Thompson told Sky Racing.
“She’s got a fantastic record with Nash (Rawiller). He rides her with confidence, and I think it gives her confidence.
“She’s just got better as she’s got older as I think all the Casino Princes do.”
Sweet Deal has had a spectacular campaign winning two races at both Rosehill and Randwick, taking her earnings to more than $530,000. She has formed a great relationship with Nash Rawiller who has partnered the mare in all three of her wins this campaign.
Boomer Bloodstock outlaid $67,500 for the successful syndicate headed by Calie Stone, to secure Sweet Deal from Lincoln Farm’s Inglis Classic draft, with the mare now banking eight times her purchase price in prizemoney.
