Star Reflection last won a year ago at Muswellbrook and Lees racing manager Lucas Miller was delighted to see her break through in town.

“If a mare’s deserved a Saturday win, it’s this one,” Miller told Sky Thoroughbred Central. “All of last preparation she’s been so close, and a little bit inconclusive last start.

“She had no luck, but Tommy [Berry] got her in a lovely position today and the speed was on up front and she was able to pounce on them.

“She’s so consistent, you can’t rule her out of any race she goes in.She’s so genuine and tough, so we were pleasantly confident. We knew she’d run well, so it’s really good to see. It’s great for all the connections, there’s a few of the boys here today who had a good crack at her.”

The victory was part of a Randwick double for n Bloodstock, who won the listed Christmas Cup (2400m) with the Kim Waugh-trained Our Century.

Second to Exoterictwo weeks ago, Our Century turned the tables to win by1-3/4 lengths.

“I may give him one more run then he can have a short break and get ready for the Sydney Cup,” Waugh told AAP.”Last time they ran such fast sectionals, two seconds faster than normal, that he just didn’t have a chance. I took him home and gave him four days in the paddock on the farm and he loved that.”

“He has been working well and coming off the track like a two-year-old.”
