Lamia Bale breaks her Group 1 maiden in Sapphire Crown final

produced a gutsy performance in the Final at Park on Thursday night, holding off a late challenge from strong-finisher Angie Rocks.

Exiting from box six as the $2.40 favourite, the daughter of High Earner and Maple Bale notched up her first 1 victory in a time of 29.23 over the 515-metre distance.

The -trained chaser stepped well from the wide alley and took the lead heading into the first turn. Angie Rocks took advantage of an ideal rails run to sit in fourth position and made her move in the back straight.

After a gutsy last-ditch effort, Angie Rocks finished second by a head and lost no admirers with an outstanding performance. Outside runner One Dee finished six lengths away in third position.

Lamia Bale recorded her 16th win on Thursday night at start 52 and took her prize money total to $315,020.
