The Listed Placid Arc Stakes in Western Australia over 1200m today showcased a star in the making.

Her name is CHANTORQUE (War Chant-Contortion).

Willy Pike was riding a filly MYSTICAL VIEW (Canford Cliffs-Mystical Miss) in his regular pink and white colours for Grant and Alana Williams. But even that winning combo couldn’t run with the other filly.

Chantorque now is three from three in recent starts and overall four from five.

After JUST A PINCH missed the kick by two lengths the noted speedsters CHARLETON EDDIE (Shooting To Win-Refemme) and ACROMANTULA flew the lids and led, the winner sat back in 4th.

Eddie kicked off the bend and got over a length clear, Acromantula dropped off and this gritty, powerful filly just took a look at him on his own in front and went, ‘nope, I’ll get you, bro’ and she did.,

Shaun McCruddy rode her perfectly parking just in behind the speed, which was solid, then let loose to win drawing away from Charleton Eddie, who ran very bravely.

Connections of the runner-up have now seen this filly run past their flyer twice in a row which is frustrating.

He’s had 8 starts for 4 wins and 3 placings, winning $228,000.

Mystical View battled on away for third for Pike.

But the winner is very smart.

She is leased by eight owners, a couple of whom belong to the trainer Russell Stewart’s family and she has won $279,000 in stakes and more importantly, has Black Type now.
