With the favourite Miss Vista finishing out of the money in the Ladbrokes 55 second Challenge heat on Friday night at Mooenee Valley it was left to speedy Snitzel mare Modern Wonder to claim victory.

Modern Wonders as a yearlingA stakes-winner on debut at two and then Group III placed last season at three, the Leon and Troy Corstens trained mare was fit and ready to fire at her third run back from a spell.

She stalked the leaders from gate one for Ben Melham and surged clear to win the 955 metre dash by three quarters of a length.

A $175,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Mill Park draft for Malua Bloodstock/ Bahen Bloodstock, Modern Wonder has two wins and four placings from 11 starts with prizemoney topping $160,000.

Modern Wonder is from stakes-placed winner Elusive Wonder, a half-sister by Elusive Quality (USA) to stakes-winner Tantra and to the dam of stakes-winner Oak Park.
