Opening her account in the Star Thoroughbreds colours at Moonee Valley on Monday was the Chris Waller trained filly Gretna, a $150,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the draft of Mill Park Thoroughbreds, who will offer a cracking draft at the Adelaide Magic Millions Yearling Sale starting this evening.
The Snitzel filly improved sharply on her unplaced debut at Caulfield last month, surging home from back in the field to win over 1000 metres by along head.
Bred by Mill Park and Brian Messner, Gretna is the fourth winner from Stars With a Kiss, a half-sister by Umatilla to Group II winner Hadabeclorka and stakes-winner Songs of Vienna, the dam of stakes-winner City of Song.
Mill Park sold the current yearling from Starts with a Kiss, a filly by I Am Invincible, at Inglis Premier this year for $260,000 to Busuttin Racing / G1X Racing.
