She surged to the line to win by half a length taking her overall record to five wins and six placings from 17 starts with earnings in excess of  $472,000.

Humma Mumma has a yearling filly by Capitalist and was covered last spring by Zoustar.

Humma Mumma is one of 16 stakes-winners for Lonhro’s stunning son Denman, who has relocated to Twin Hills Stud and stands at a fee of $8,800.
