13 Apr 2009

Stravinsky four-year-old
Miss Maren (NZ) (ex Deebee Lady) earned herself a trip to Sydney to contest the Gr.1 Queen Elizabeth Handicap on April 25, with a career best performance in the Gr.3 Easter Cup (2000m) at Caulfield on Saturday.

Dashing clear half-way down the straight in the hands of Glen Boss, the six-win galloper registered her fourth consecutive raceday success in decisive fashion, greeting the winning post with over a length to spare.

Trained by Mick Price,
Miss Maren (NZ) had scored her first stakes success two starts back in the Listed Schweppervescence Stakes (2005m) at Morphettville.

Bred by D A & Mrs N H Bell,
Miss Maren (NZ) is out of
Deebee Lady, the noted dam of Gr.1 winner
Deebee Belle (NZ) (Bin Ajwaad).
Miss Maren (NZ) is one of 54 stakes winners worldwide for Cambridge Stud shuttle sire Stravinsky.

To date
Stravinsky has produced seven Gr.1 winners. In New Zealand his progeny have earned over $4,383,000 in stakes and in
Australia his 132 winners have won 328 races, earning over AUS$12,379,000 in stakes.
