Park Life became the latest Group One winner for Rock N Roll Heaven when she won the $322,000 Australian Pacing Gold Final last night at Menangle.
She actually made it back to back APG two year old fillies finals for her sire after Jilliby Jitterbug won last year's edition.
In the run Park Life settled three back on the pegs and stayed there until 400 metres when she was able to shift off into the running line.
Once they straightened Park Life let down beautifully and quickly sprinted to the lead.
Perfect Sense (Art Major) and Petacular made valiant efforts to pick up Park Life but she packed too much power and ran out the winner.
Perfect Sense ran a good race for second, while Petacular finished third.
For Park Life this was her third win from six starts and the $150,000 first prize cheque bumps her earnings to $168,329.
Bred by Mario Di Carlo, Park Life is the second foal of the In The Pocket mare Strawbs Interact 1:56.3 - $30,507.
She was purchased by Steve and Narelle Dickson at the Brisbane APG sale for $16,000.
Just over 12 months later that figure has been returned tenfold!
