A decision to dodge Winx with Global Glamour has been vindicated

A decision to dodge Sydney’s weight-for-age stars with top three-year-old filly Global Glamour has been vindicated.

Global Glamour was among the acceptances to take on Winx in the Apollo Stakes before co-trainers Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott opted to contest the Light Fingers Stakes (1200m).

But for the dual Group One winner to make a winning return to Sydney racing, it needed courageous tactics from jockey Josh Parr to bring off a daring plan.

“Gai, Adrian and I thought the only way we could possibly beat these horses was to make it a proper test,” Parr said.

“She’s a fit horse, a classy horse and she showed that today.”

Parr made sure there was no loafing in the Group Two race and Global Glamour set up a commanding leading at the 200m.

It was then that Foxplay emerged from the pack with a late run but Global Glamour, the $2.25 favourite, held on to win by a short half-head.

“I was pretty confident I got the photo but you just never know do you?” Parr said.

“She went fast, quickened off a hot tempo and held on strongly.”

Spright ($7) made a return that pleased jockey Corey Brown in taking the minor placing – 1-1/2 lengths away after coming from midfield.

Brown summed up the nature of the Light Fingers, describing the pattern of the race as different from most.

“It felt like there were two races going on out there,” he said.

“The winner was in one by her own and we were all in another.”
