The red and white colours of Waratah Thoroughbreds were carried to victory at Randwick on Sunday by a lightly raced mare that is clearly going places.
The Guy Walter trained Floor Show stamped herself as a very bright prospect when she scored the easiest of wins in the Benchmark 70 event over 1800 metres.
It was the first trip to town for the four year-old daughter of Stravinsky (USA)(pictured) , who has been quietly working through the grades at Goulburn where she had won two of her only three previous starts.
Partnered by Kathy O'Hara, Floor Show travelled well throughout and always looked the winner, surging away at the finish to win by two and three-quarter lengths, her overall record now three wins and a second from just four starts.
"I spoke to Paul Fudge (Waratah Thoroughbreds) this morning and told him she had a bit against her today, so if she came through it would be a good test for her," said Guy Walter.
"It's a lovely time of year to have a horse like her in work as she could well end up in Melbourne. I think there could be a nice race in her."
Floor Show as a $50,000 purchase for Waratah Thoroughbreds from the Little Plains draft at the 2010 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale and was a successful pinhook having been previously purchased for just $13,000 from the Coolmore draft at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale.
She is a half-sister to stakes-placed South African performer Queen Mira and is one of three winners from Sadler's Wells mare Celtic Queen (IRE), a sister to Group I winner Alberto Giacometti.
