Jockey Josh Parr found reason to put a difficult week behind him when Mascareri confirmed her liking for wet tracks at Hawkesbury on Saturday.

Stewards suspended Parr for riding 2.5kg overweight in a race at Wyong on Thursday and his day turned even worse when he was fined $500 for using a modified vest.

His suspension will start on Wednesday and finish on May 15.

But those troubles were almost forgotten as he was praised for his initiative in winning the TAB Number 1 Club Handicap (1200m) on the Darley mare.

“I thought she’d be (racing) in the one-one but when Josh went to the front he was able to dictate (the race),” trainer Peter Snowden said.

Parr confirmed he was reluctant to make the pace on Mascareri but with a rain-affected track playing to her advantage, his option to go forward turned out to be a winning move.

“There’s no way she is a natural leader but the horse on my outside (Miss Independent) doesn’t normally race so close as well.

“I thought the best way to beat her would be to make the race a true test and my mare came out on top.”

Drawing clear over the final 100m, Mascareri ($5) had 1-1/4 lengths to spare over Girls Go Racing ($10) with Miss Independent ($5.50) a short half-head away third.

Mascareri has now raced three times in heavy going for two wins and a placing and Snowden said the four-year-old, by noted wet-track sire Commands, had done enough to earn her place in a big team he was sending to the two-day Scone Cup carnival in May.

“We’ll give her a chance in the Dark Jewel Classic,” Snowden said.

The $175,000 Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) will be run on May 14, meaning Parr will miss the mount on Mascareri in the Listed race for fillies and mares.

Punters were well off the mark in the opening race with the favourite Myalla Gold ($3.60) finishing second last and the well-tried second pick See The World ($4.60 to $4.20) failing to beat a runner home.
