Brilliant Winner for Star Witness
Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott know a thing or two about Star Witness fillies thanks to dual Group I winner Global Glamour and seem to have another good one in the pipeline.
Trained out of their Victorian stable, Our Crown Mistress was second on debut at the start of last month and then saluted at Sale on September 10.
Sent to Geelong on Wednesday in a Benchmark 64 event over 1340 metres, Our Crown Mistress was backed as if unbeatable and duly coasted home to win by more than four lengths.
She led all the way and was in a class of her own as she should be given she holds entries for the Group I MRC Thousand Guineas and VRC Oaks.
A $200,000 Magic Millions purchase for McKeever Bloodstock from the Kitchwin Hills draft, Our Crown Mistress is the second winner from Barangaroo, a metro winning Fastnet Rock mare from the family of Champion Miler Racing to Win.
An eye-catching grey like Racing to Win, Our Crown Mistress owes her grey colouring to third dam Sunset Beach, a daughter of influential grey shuttler Kenmare (Fr).
