Facing the starter for the third time, Undoubtable Miss ($3) produced a strong burst of speed in the straight to win South Australia’s richest juvenile race by a length.
Locally prepared younger Danger Deal ($12) tried hard over the concluding stages to snatch second, a half neck ahead of the favourite and proven stakes performer Spoils ($2.50 fav).
Undoubtable Miss, a $90,000 Gold Coast Yearling Sale purchase from the draft of Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm, is prepared at Cranbourne by Robbie Griffiths who was suitably impressed with the performance.
“We were contemplating going to the Sires’ Produce on Saturday, but when this race looked more suitable and wasn’t a jump in distance, we thought this was the best race for her,” Griffiths said.
“It’s a great series the Magic Millions series and the hardest part is getting a horse good enough to run in the series.”
“But this filly has always shown great talent, she was very good her first start at Ballarat and that form’s been franked with Ducimus running so well, and then she was good at Sandown so to come here and win was a great result.”
For the win Griffiths scooped a $10,000 trainer bonus comprising a credit voucher to spend at the 2017 Adelaide Yearling Sale starting tonight and continuing through to Wednesday.
A daughter of former Magic Millions graduate and leading sire Not a Single Doubt, Undoubtable Miss has now earned over $153,000 for her large group of jubilant connections.
Undoubtable Miss is one of two named foals for the winning Tobougg mare Spy Catcher – a half sister to the five time winner and stakes performed Rendzina.
It is the family further back of Oakleigh Plate winner Khaptingly and fellow stakes winners Khaptivaan, Battlefield, Sain Khapital and Spanish Bay.
