Media Maid scores on her home track
May 24, 2015
Speedy filly Media Maid broke through for her first victory on Saturday, with a win in the Maiden Handicap over 900m at the Gold Coast.
Starting as the race favourite, the three year old jumped away well from barrier three and travelled nicely in the box seat position, under the guidance of jockey Kelvin Wharton. She sprinted away in the straight to score comfortably by a length.
Purchased at the QTIS Magic Millions sale as a yearling for the bargain price of $8,000, Media Maid picked up $10,400 for Saturday's win and she has now collected over $25,000 from just her eight starts.
