$50K Super Maiden Win For Motorboat
Lining up for her third career start, 3YO filly Motorboat was able to take out the $50k 1100m Super Maiden at Wellington on Tuesday. The daughter of Astern put the writing on the wall when running second last start at Canberra over 1000m, finishing second to Mountain Chatter, who subsequently won again at Goulburn on Tuesday.

Given a confident front-running ride by one the Western NSW's best jockey's Matthew Cahill, she was driven out of the gates to take an on-speed position from barrier 8 which proved advantageous around the Wellington circuit. She gave a good kick at the 200m, staving off the well supported Pockets Eights to win by half a length.

It was a rewarding win for Motorboat's connections including her trainer Danielle Seib and partner Aaron who have taken their time to iron out a few of her barrier quirks. 

Congratulations to her connections Dalanna Bloodstock, Ms K J Mcdougall, Mr P O'Meagher, Miss L R Casson, Mr J P Purtell, Mr A M Kennedy, Dr F McCourt, Mr T Cahill, Mr C Hodgkinson, Dr M Chan, Mr S Nagaratnam, Mr G Shalala, Dr M Healy, Mr J Gregory, Ms V Leonard, Miss J M Petrie, Mr R Shalala, Mr D Steffel, Mr D P Toohey
