True Attraction and Mystery Miss were well fancied to take out the two feature events at Belmont Park, in the colours of owner-breeders Bob and Sandra Peters.
They didn’t disappoint.
The pair bought up blacktype win number 26 and 27 of the season for the Peters’, the most they have recorded.
True Attraction was the Peters’ first blacktype winner of the day, scoring by almost two lengths.
The gelding, a $1.14 TABtouch favourite, was under heavy riding coming to the home turn and looked to be in some trouble.
When jockey William Pike got the Grant and Alana Williams-trained True Attraction in clear running he was able to go on and score a comfortable victory.
It was significantly easier for Mystery Miss, who scored an effortless two-and-a-half length win over Cockatiel and Ping Me Another in the Belmont Oaks (2000m).
Battle Storm maintained his unbeaten record in the Barry Cooper Birthday Handicap (1000m) for Pike, the Peters’ and trainer Adam Durrant.
Pike was also able to team up with the Williams-trained pair Cryptic Wonder and Nikitas in the Racing For Free Before The Footy Handicap (1200m) and the Crown Perth Handicap (1300m) respectively.
Pike’s five winners took him to 135 city winners for the season, equal with the record he set previously in season 2015/16.
