Winning Trainer: Tom Dabernig

"That was very special. Certainly in my own right and especially out of Warrnambool. First Group 3 for the new stable and I was thrilled for Flying Start Syndications.

"She's a mare that as a three-year-old was a bit delicate but as a four-year-old mare now she's really seasoned up very well.

"That ride then, Blaike McDougall, he's ridden a lot of winners for me but a lot of Victorians haven't probably heard a lot about him. I think they will. He's a very good rider.

"She had only had one run on a soft track before this. That was he first ever race start but I was happy being Race 10 of the Cox Plate weekend when we drew wide. I thought the fence might give out and we ended up in a good spot.

"It was a little bit tense turning for home from a long way out but when she got clear she really burst through and now with a Group 3 win for a Tavistock mare, she's very valuable."

What's next: "We'll just see how she pulls up. She's in great form. Obviously there's the Group 1 mile next Saturday but it is a week back-up. She'd have to do particularly well to do that. Plenty of options. I think at the Sandown Cup meeting at Caulfield there's a 1600 metre mares race there too to consider."

Winning Jockey: Blaike McDougall

"Tom has been quite influential to my career over the last three years, so he's done nothing but back me the whole way to this today. It is great to repay him and his owners with that race."

The run: "It was getting ugly from the 400, every I went there was a bum and I was just full of running. I got caught up too much into trying to ride a bit of a race. I should have kept it simple and just went around them. Just at the right time got the job done.'
