The dual Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner True Self showed age was hardly slowing her down when the OTI Racing-owned mare finished hard to take the Saudi Turf Club at Riyadh overnight.
In her first appearance since taking the group 3 Queen Eiizabeth Stakes at Flemington, True Self, with Hollie Doyle aboard, ran down the favourite Channel Maker to score in the $1.27 million race over 2100 metres at Riyadh.
For the globetrotting eight-year-old mare who is trained by Willie Mullins, the victory provided the biggest cheque of her career of around $780,000.
The Willie Mullins-trained mare has raced four times in Australia over the past two seasons. Aside from her Queen Elizabeth Stakes victories, she also has a Geelong Cup placing in 2019 behind Prince Of Arran to her credit and a 13th in last spring’s Caulfield Cup.
