Party For One goes back to back at Headquarters!
Exciting mare Party For One has continued to impress since joining the stables of Mick Price and Michael Kent at Cranbourne. 

After 2 unlucky performances at Sandown, when getting back and flying home, she has now posted back to back wins at Flemington in super impressive fashion. On the 13th of May, she stepped up to the 1400m with Blake Shinn on board, and after settling in a prominent position, she was held up until the 200m, before showing her customary turn off foot, blowing the field away to win by a widening 2L.

3 weeks later, she returned to the same track and trip, this time asked to lump 60kgs from a wide draw. With Blake Shinn in the saddle again, she showed great gate speed to settle in a lovely spot early, and despite being asked to make a long, sustained run, she was again way too good to register back to back wins. 

Mick and Michael have done a terrific job with the mare, and stakes races are calling in the Spring. Straight after the win yesterday, Michael Kent Jn was already eyeing off some nice mares races over the carnival. 

We will see how she pulls up,  but she may head back to Flemington for one more run this prep over 1400m. Congratulations to all her owners, which include Silverdale Farm.
