The Bernard James-trained Parisian Partygirl took out a super edition of yesterday’s Global Breeding Farms Golden Girls Mile (1684m) at Pinjarra.

Just 7m covered first to last in a busy finish to the $30,000 feature and Parisian Partygirl was one of nine horses across the track that all had winning claims over the closing stages.

Race favourite Rosies Ideal held the lead from barrier one, while Our Alfie Romeo worked to the breeze from barrier six.

The solidly run first half of 58.1 set the race up for those just off the speed and Parisian Partygirl was one of those who was able to swoop late.

Reinsman Kyle Harper, having his first drive on the seven-year-old, was able to get off the pegs and get into clear running on the turn for home.

Parisian Partygirl and American Delight stormed home in the last 100m to fight out the finish but it was the Courage Under Fire mare who scored by a head.

Gotta Go Gabbana, having her first start since January 31, made an encouraging return to finish third.

Our Alfie Romeo fought on bravely in her first start back in Western Australia since a Ladyship Mile campaign, while Rosies Ideal finished 11th.

Harper told TABradio he admired the mare’s tenacity to power past a quality field.

“She just tries her heart out,” he said.

“She’s got that great 300m sprint on her and we got her out at the right time.

“The first 100m up the straight I didn’t think we were going to get there.

“That last 100m she just really rattled home.”

Meanwhile, Chicago Bull will line up in this Friday’s Free-For-All event at Gloucester Park.
