At Belmont racecourse in Perth, Widden Stud's ill-fated Gr1-winning sire Northern Meteor (Encosta de Lago-Explosive, by Fappiano) added a black-type success when 6YO bay mare Meteoroid (Northern Meteor-Benatar, by Distant Music) toughed it out in heavy conditions to post her maiden stakes victory in the $100,000 Listed Belmont Newmarket (1200m) for 3YO+, defeating Profit Street & Battle Hero. Meteoroid, who was purchased for $90,000 at the 2013 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Kitchwin Hills, improved her record to 7 wins and 6 placings (including the Listed WATC Jungle Mist Classic) from 19 starts for $240,590 in earnings.
