t’s A Shakedown made it two wins from three starts after taking out Wednesday night’s TAB.com.au Elvis Championship Final (2040m) at Parkes Paceway.

Trainer-driver Monique Parsons put together a perfect performance in the gig to edge out Rockn And Rolln and Barkway Arnold in an extremely tight scramble at the post.

It’s A Shakedown was taken to the front of the pack from the gates before Parsons settled her mare in behind Barkway Arnold who led for the majority of trip.

Parsons made her move at the top of the bend sweeping outside Barkway Arnold before holding on and edging out a fast finishing Rockn And Rolln in a mile rate 2:00.02.
