First Win for Champagne Jane

Gawler, May 17 – Opening her account at just her second start at Gawler on Sunday was well bred Starcraft filly Champagne Jane.

Prepared by Leon Macdonald and Andrew Gluyas, Champagne Jane got home by a nose in the 1100 metre maiden as favourite, improving on her debut third at Murray Bridge earlier this month.

A $320,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Mill Park draft, Champagne Jane is the first foal of Victory Cry, a placed sister to stakes-winner Victory Chant from the family of Group I winner Serious Speed and Group II winner Majestic Music.

Mill Park sold a Northern Meteor yearling colt from Victory Cry at Magic Millions this year for $300,000 and she has a Sebring weanling colt to follow.

Victory Cry was covered last year by Foxwedge.
