Andrew Carston admits Pisco Sour has often left him scratching his head as she has the ability but sometimes fails to deliver on that promise.
However the five-year-old mare brought her A-Game to Timaru on Wednesday, winning her R75 1200m contest when benefiting from a well-timed ride from Rohan Mudhoo.
After winning in September Pisco Sour disappointed in her following three starts but was back at her best this time round, finishing strongly out wide to win by a half neck.
“She’s been a frustrating mare but has plenty of ability,” Carston said. “She got a nice run yesterday, was free of interference and was strong to the line.
“It was a good ride from Rohan and I’m thrilled with the result. It would be the furthest south Trelawney have had a runner and it is great to get another win for them.”
Carston said he had no set plans for the daughter of I Am Invincible and would see how she came through the run before looking at future targets.
Raced by Brent, Cherry and Faith Taylor, Pisco Sour now has four wins and four placings to her credit.
