A week after Gallic Chieftain's victory in the group 2 Chairman's Quality (2600m) at Randwick, Ballarat trainer Archie Alexander was celebrating another major race success.
This time it was talented filly Mirette which powered to victory in the group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m) at Morphettville.
The horse was given a well-timed ride by jockey Declan Bates, who drove through along the rail and nabbed outsider Dreamed right on the line.
The daughter of Unencumbered has now won four of 11 career starts for close to $200,000 in prizemoney.
It was also a big weekend for fellow Ballarat trainer Mitch Freedman, who claimed victory in the Terang Cup (2150m) on Sunday afternoon.
Former Darren Weir-trained galloper Pelonomena made it three wins in succession by taking out the $70,000 feature.
Ridden by Jye McNeil, Pelonomena produced a scintillating finale to score a narrow success over Golden Authority.
Freedman is now contemplating his next move with the progressive four-year-old mare, which could include a tilt at the Warrnambool Cup on May 2.
Pelonomena has had just four runs for Freedman with wins at Echuca, Sandown and Terang.
The horse has won five races in total.
