The opening race at Warragul on Monday afternoon was take out by the Nathan Purdon trained and driven 3yo filly Miramanee which broke its maiden status in impressive style rating 1:57.0 for the 1790 metres.
Miramanee is the fifth winner produced by her dam The Baggy Green which is being offered as Lot 26 in the upcoming Winter Woolies Sale.
The Baggy Green isn’t in foal but she is now the dam of five winners from her first six foals and the Art Major mare was pretty handy on the race-track herself winning 17 races and $108,700.
The Baggy Green is a half-sister to six other winners including Some Waratah p,1:50.3 $160,855 and current 3yo filly Steno p,2,1:51.9 $131,760 which won the Group One Australian Gold Bullion at her last start on April 30th.
Lady Waratah, the dam of The Baggy Green, was voted Australian 2yo Pacer of the Year and Australian 3yo Filly Pacer of the Year on her way to a career tally of 20 wins and stakes of $564,770.

With wins at Maryborough on May 13th and Ballarat on May 20th the Bettors Delight 4yo Keayang Kamikaze p,2,1:55.5 has lifted his earnings to just shy of $30,000.
Keayang Kamikaze’s dam Libertybelle Midfrew is being sold in foal to the former outstanding race-horse Bettors Wish p,1:47.6 $2,601,233 as Lot 35 in the Nutrien Winter Woolies Sale making the resultant foal a three-quarter relation to Keayang Kamikaze as Bettors Wish is a son of Bettors Delight.

Libertybelle Midfrew won a Sales Classic in New Zealand as a 2yo before being sold to Western Australia where she won a Group One WA Oaks as a 3yo and a Group One Golden Nugget Championship as a 4yo and retired with 19 wins and $640,497 in stakes.
