Windsor Park Stud-bred Mastercraftsman filly Century Miss had an impressive win today in the Mills Reef Maiden at Tauranga.

Starting favourite in the 2160m event, she moved forward at the home turn and managed to get away from the rail to take the lead at the 150m mark beating her rivals’ home by an impressive five lengths.

Sold almost a year ago in the New Zealand September on account of Windsor Park Stud she fetched $5,000 as a broken-in and quietly prepared three year old.

Century Miss is a half-sister to the smart galloper Volks Lightning who is a winner and Gr.3 performer while her dam Next Century (Stravinsky) is a descendant of an international family heavy in black type.

Since coming under new ownership the Graham Thomas-trained mare has had four starts in which she placed second in her last two starts before her smart win today.

“We are really happy with her progress and she just keeps improving,” commented purchaser and co-owner Robert Gollan.

“Graham has done a great job with her and has brought her on nice and quietly.”

“She’s pulled up well after today’s race and we will continue to progress her through the grades looking towards some better staying races next year.” commented part-owner Robert Gollan.

Century Miss profits $6,250 from today’s win taking her total earnings to over $10,000 and double her purchase price in just four starts.
