The strong bond between Artistry and jockey Thomas Huet continued at Rosehill on Saturday as the pair combined to win for an extraordinary fifth time in the Blacktown Workers Club Group Handicap (1500m) providing the stable with a city win double in the process.
The four-year-old Shamardal mare put in a big performance under a patient ride from the French hoop to record her most impressive win to date (2.5 lengths), leaving rivals Telepathic and Tarangower in their wake.
“Thomas has got a great affinity with this mare; he just knows how to ride to her strengths and gives her more confidence each time she steps out,” explained Peter Snowden.
“She’s been working her way nicely through the grades and seeing her put a decent margin on them today was extremely pleasing.”
Artistry is now taking a well-earned rest in the spelling paddock with a view to returning for Autumn riches where the stable will target some black type mares races.
