A great win by filly Mystic Rebel (Dissident/Mesmereyser) saw her take out the first race in the Frank Powyer 3yo Maiden Handicap over 1400m at Kembla Grange today, Thursday 22nd July 2021.
A lovely ride by jockey Rachel King had her jump the best from barrier 1. Hugging the fence, she allowed Dundeel Star (Dundeel NZ/Defender) to go to the front. At the 1000m mark she came off the fence to challenge for the lead. Meeting her rival on level terms and then extending the lead, she crossed the finishing line with a winning margin of nearly 2.5 lengths. Beating fast-finishing King Of Hearts (Sebring/Eloping) for second, with C’Mon Reg (Sidestep/Stand By Your Man) running third.
A big congratulations to patient owners Dr Chris Rogers and Dr Paul Hughes. This filly is a handful at home but is the supreme professional at the races, making the victory look easy.
