The 6YO daughter of Von Costa De Hero was a convincing five length winner of the Pat Hassett Memorial BM58 Handicap over 1284m, the same race she was successful in last year.
Rain leading up to the meeting, resulting in a slow track favoured the mare, similarly to last year.
Three of her four career wins have now come on these surfaces.
Another key to the win was the return of Melissa Julius to the saddle, three of her past four rides resulting in wins on the mare.
After settling well back early, Melissa allowed the mare to tack onto the main pack at the 800m mark before making her winning move approaching the home turn.
It was evident upon straightening the race was over with the margin the only question.
A well-supported $2.70 favourite, she defeated the aptly named Thunderanlightning with Edgy Era in third placing.
Following last year’s win, Daniel aimed his sights on a meeting at Hamilton before winning again at Burrumbeet on New Year’s Day, a similar path looks a likely option once again.
A consistent mare across her 28-start career, she has now won four races and placed eight times for just over $86,000 in prizemoney.
Congratulations to all connections!
