At Launceston in Tasmania, 5-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler & former US Champion 2YO & 3YO Lookin At Lucky (Smart Strike-Private Feeling, by Belong to Me) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Chabaud (Lookin at Lucky-Rockadubai, by Fastnet Rock) scored by 0.8-length for trainer Robert Smerdon in the $100,000 Listed Tasmanian Oaks (2100m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Sweet Redemption (Snitzel-Redeeming Lass, by Red Ransom) & Electric Aura (Shocking-Sentura, by Volksraad). This was the first stakes victory for Chabaud who took her record to 3 wins and 4 placings from 9 starts for $110,375 earnings.
