It's no secret Tricolours and Pride Racing have an excellent strike rate together and Wednesday was no different.

James Moss from Tricolours purchased Lot 403 from Inglis Easter in 2017. She was by So You Think and out of a Radoute"s Choice mare Jarada. James purchased her for $120k from the well presented Middle Brook valley Lodge draft.

Her dad had stamped her well, she was a big filly with plenty of presence. She was named Fasika.

Fast forward to race 4 at Warwick Farm on Wednesday where Fasika made her very dominant debut against some handy fillies. She took no prisoners!

Fasika needed time and patience to allow her to fully furnish into her big frame. She wasn't a natural two year old and you certainly couldn't rush her. Joe felt she would take great benefit from short preparations and short spells so she could continue to develop while being educated.

Fasika had her very first trial at her home track in February and Jockey Corey Brown was quite pleased with the filly. Joe gave her a second trial at Hawkesbury which she won quite impressively and with the two trials under her belt Joe was keen to get her to the races.

Warwick Farm on Wednesday looked like a suitable assignment first up and with the inside draw it was even more attractive.

Fasika was keen to get out the gates and show the rest of the field how it's done. She landed handy and settled third in running behind the leaders. As they came around the bend Fasika, shifted out to come around the leading pair. Once she straightened up she got going and the left the rest of the field flat footed. She hit the front 150m from home and sailed down to the line to win by 2L with her ears pricked.

Congratulations to her winning owners. Your patience has paid off!
