Playing Arkabella, a two year old daughter of Shadow Play, took out the Tasmanian Sweepstakes Final at Hobart yesterday in tough fashion.
After drawing barrier four, Playing Arkabella went forward at the start but was forced sit outside the favourite Harshali for the entire trip.
However despite doing all the work, Playing Arkabella was too strong and she ran out a 1.3 metre winner.
It was her second win in six starts and bumps her earnings to $20,800.
Playing Arkabella was bred by Kareena Blackwell and is the first and only foal out of the four time winning Topnotcher mare Arkabe Jewel 2:03.3 - $25,345.
