McCartney Kicked things off yesterday securing her first win over a mile at Ruakaka.

Trained by team Rogerson the 3yo daughter of Alamosa loomed up and won impressively by just over a length. McCartney has taken a little while to mature, but I think she’s very good,” Graeme Rogerson said. “All she’s needed was a good track.” The three-year-old will go to auction at the Gold Coast later this month. “If she doesn’t sell then I might run her in the Guineas at the Sunshine Coast,” Rogerson said.

McCartney is a half sister to the multiple group two winning mare Serena miss also VRC St Ledger placed Gifted Lad.

Across the Tasman the Brian Smith trained Hirtshals dug deep to win over 1000m on the Sunshine coast.

The daughter of Pins who is a full sister to top sprinter Barbaric has now won four from twelve starts and over $60,000 in stake money.
