Wings Of Song soared to her fifth consecutive triumph by claiming Sunday’s Listed Tasmanian Oaks (2100m) at Launceston in impressive fashion.

Trained by Patrick Payne, the filly displayed her dominance by outpacing Very Sewreel, securing victory by half a length, while Ala Moana trailed behind by 1.25 lengths to clinch third place.

Bred at Twin Hills Stud, Wings Of Song has now elevated her record to six wins, two seconds, and a third from 11 starts, accumulating a total of $330,830 in prize money.

In an interview following the race, winning jockey Jye McNeil, who has guided her to victory in the last four outings, remarked, “She’s gotten better every time.

“It was the second time at the 2100 meters, and I felt she was stronger today. She had a nice resting run.

“There was a bit going on in the middle stages, and she adapted well. I loved the way she joined in with ease today, and she put the race away.”
