The Stephen Marsh-trained Shesonfire was backed into $1.70 favouritism for the Mills Reef Winery 1100 at Arawa Park on Wednesday and she did not disappoint punters, winning by 1-1/2 lengths over Lismore Diamond.

The four-year-old daughter of Zacinto has been knocking on the door for some time, placing 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,” 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.”
