Miss Gunpowder Wins Gr2 Thousand Guineas Prelude
At Caulfield in Melbourne, Think Big Stud stallion Pendragon (Elnadim-Alacrity, by Grosvenor) sired his first stakes winner when exciting 3YO filly Miss Gunpowder (Pendragon-Forever Rafter, by Delineator) led her rivals a merry dance to score by a length for trainer Phillip Stokes in the $201,000 Gr2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m), over fellow sophomore fillies Payroll (Not a Single Doubt-Workhard, by Red Ransom) & Jameka (Myboycharlie-Mine Game, by General Nediym). A $60,000 Inglis Classic Summer yearling consigned by Think Big Stud, Miss Gunpowder took her record to 4 wins & a placing (including the Gr3 Quezette Stakes) from 5 starts for $196,500 earnings. The victory saw bookies wind her in from $13 to $7 for the Gr1 Thousand Guineas.
