Star Winners for Witness
Star Witness enjoyed a two state metropolitan double on Wednesday with a brilliant juvenile debut winner at Eagle Farm in Legadema and a smart three year-old winner at Sandown in Hot Seat.
The speedy Mick Mair trained gelding Legadema showed his rivals a clean pair of heels from the jump, leading throughout to win the 1000 metre maiden by three and a quarter lengths.
A $20,000 Magic Millions purchase for his trainer from the Berkley Park Stud, Legadema is the first winner for Leopard Skin, an unraced daughter of stakes-winner La Chasseuse.
Trained by Brian and Ashley McKnight, Hot Seat broke through at Sandown to score his second win over 1200 metres after two recent narrow defeats.
A modest $14,000 Inglis VOBIS Gold Yearling purchase for Oakford Racing from the Bowness Stud draft, Hot Seat is one of seven winners from the good producing stakes-winner Hot Riff.
