She was on fire today

Shesonfire (Jason Waddell) gaining a well-deserved maiden win at Rotorua today.

The Stephen Marsh-trained Shesonfire lived up to expectations when backed into $1.70 favouritism for the Mills Reef Winery 1100 at Arawa Park today.

The four-year-old daughter of Zacinto didn’t disappoint punters when winning by one and a half lengths from Lismore Diamond.

She has been knocking on the door for some time, being placed in four of her previous five starts.

Her connections were thrilled with the victory and are hoping she can add to her win tally before a breeding career beckons.

“It’s a big sigh of relief. We have been waiting for this for a long time,” Marsh’s Racing Manager Todd Pollard said.

“Probably the last five starts we have been thinking this is her day and she has finally done it for some great owners.

“Now that she has had her maiden win, hopefully she can go on with it.

‘’She has got a nice pedigree behind her. She is a half-sister to a good horse (Fifty Fifty) in Hong Kong who is a Group Three winner so she has got a lot of value as a broodmare.”
