A decision to call an early halt to Soldi Domani's spring campaign in Melbourne was rewarded when the three-year-old won the Listed Gold Edition Plate at Doomben on Saturday.
Soldi Domani recorded his second win from eight starts when he downed favourite She's Miss Devine by 2-1/4 lengths in the 1200-metre feature.
Trainer Brian Dais has always had a big opinion of Soldi Domani and sent him to Melbourne for the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in October.
However, Dais pulled up stumps and brought him home early following his failure in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) in September.
"I've said all along from the day he won his Maiden he's a very good horse," Dais said.
"It's been a great reward for his owner Craig Morrisey who has invested heavily in my stable.
"When I realised he wouldn't run 1600 metres after he ran in the Guineas Prelude I decided to bring him home straight away and get him ready for the summer three-year-old races.
"He didn't run a strong 1400 metres so there was no point going on to the Caulfield Guineas."
Soldi Domani will have his next run in the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate (1300m) at the Gold Coast on December 27.
"Unfortunately he's not eligible for the Magic Millions races so the Vo Rogue will probably be his last run before a break," Dais said.
"I don't know what races I'll set him for yet but we'll bring him back in time for the winter."
