SebringA homebred for Bob and Sandra Peters prepared by Grant and Alana Williams, Mikmoto had won her two previous starts and was sent out favourite for this 1400 metre contest for three year-old fillies.

She powered home to win by three-quarters of a length over Sebring filly Art Series and has now won $105,600 in prizemoney.
