The future looks bright for Maraudamiss who recorded another dominant victory at Ballarat on Wednesday, her third success from her last four starts.
Getting too far back after striking early interference when an eye-catching third at her previous start at Cranbourne, the talented four-year-old was sent out a short priced favourite, duly rewarding her supporters.
Again drifting back along the rails, Maraudamiss was into the clear in the straight, quickly winding up and swamping her rivals from the 100m , her winning margin a soft half length.
Whilst the win was a strong one, Michael Kent was a little concerned during the run with the track a bit harder than usually suits Maraudamiss.
"It was firmer than she likes and subsequently she was not travelling quite as well as she can. But she got away with it and there is a nice race for her at Sandown in a couple of weeks."
A horse who has always shown ability, Maraudamiss did take a little while to mature, given six months off just to grow and strengthen.
"It did her a lot of good, she is all grown up now and she is a nice mare going places."
Jockey Brad Rawiller agreed that the track was not perfect for Maraudamiss but he was impressed by the way she found the line - "she is obviously a winner," he said.
"She was left chasing a little bit today but she showed her will to win and she was just too good for them."
Congratulations to Maraudamiss' happy owners led by her always enthusiastic breeder Kerry Selleck who also bred and races Maraudamiss' classy half-sister Danestroem (pictured).
