Latta triumphs with Ocean Park filly
Fictitious is from a family Lisa Latta knows well and that inside knowledge has brought an early reward. The daughter of Ocean Park is out of the Defensive Play mare Fiaba, who won six races from the Awapuni trainer’s stable and was stakes placed in the Listed Winter Classic.
The WS-bred and raced Fictitious opened her winning account at her third start this afternoon when successful over 1600m at Wanganui. She held the front from an inside gate and when rider Masa Tanaka asked her for a serious effort in the straight she lengthened stride with a performance to suggest she can make her mark in stronger company.
