FEB 18: AUSTRALIAN CUP CARNIVAL [NIGHT 1]
|THE ROOKIE REBEL:
|THE ZOOM TOP:
A champion veteran showed incredible determination, a WA superstar delivered on her magnitude of promise and the McGrath Foundation went up as one in celebration of another pink winner.
That is a snapshot summary of the triple group racing feast at The Meadows on Saturday night, as the $800,000 Australian Cup Carnival kicked off in sensational style.
The arrival of grand stayer from The West, the mighty Miata, was met with much anticipation in the Zoom Top [725m], and she stamped her authority over the best distance gallopers in the land, and indeed beyond.
Miata is trained by Paul Stuart, who also part-owns the daughter of Bombastic Shiraz and Winsome Bluebird along with Brendan Wheeler, son of giant breeder Paul Wheeler.
