Sessions 3yo filly Cessation is the second TBWA Winner of the Week in a row for the Oakland Park stallion following Audio Boy at Bunbury on WA Breeders’ Classic Day.

Cessation made a very impressive debut in a 1000m maiden down the straight at Pinjarra on Sunday for in-form apprentice Madi Derrick.  She went out a $4.40 favourite in a wide-open race after a promising trial at Belmont last month behind subsequent Bunbury winner Diablo Lad (Magnus).

“I’m trying to make the most of all the opportunities and this filly still has a lot to learn,” Derrick said after just getting the better of Chop Suey (Safeguard) following a head-to-head duel from start to finish.  “I had to go for her earlier than I wanted but she toughed it out.”

Cessation was bred by Steve and Jill Wallace at Blackwatch Stud in Coolup and is the penultimate foal from Corvetto who is four-from-four at stud.  The dam’s half-brother Spark Of Life (Nine Carat) was a Group 1 winner of the AJC Galaxy (1100m) and MVRC Manikato Stakes (1200m).

Corvetto has an unraced 2yo colt named Leading Charge (Ducimus) with Loloma Farms.

Trainer Tiarnna Robertson wasn’t sure whether Cessation had won but was more than happy with the result even though Chop Suey was ridden by her fiancé Jarrad Noske.  “Her trial was good and she has been working well at home,” Robertson revealed.  “She drew the right side of the straight and was suited coming through against the outside rail.”

Justine Erkelens prepares Chop Suey and she also trains Sessions 3yo filly Millstee who won a Belmont maiden last Wednesday.  Sessions can continue his winning run with 3yo maidens at Belmont on Wednesday via Oakland Park homebred The Candy Kid (Studco Plate) and first-starter No Bid (Morley Growers Market Plate).
