The $100,000 Listed SAJC Dequetteville Stakes (1050m) at Morphettville on Saturday was won by exciting Snitzel filly Modern Wonder, a $175,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Mill Park draft for Malua Bloodstock/ Bahen Bloodstock.
Ridden by Stephen Baster for Leon and Troy Corstens, Modern Wonder sat outside the pacesetter Moshki before taking control around the home turn to win by two lengths from Motown Lil.
"We were thrilled to watch Modern Wonder street her rivals on debut in the Listed Dequetteville Stakes in Adelaide this afternoon," Malua Racing.
"The 2yo filly by Snitzel, a $175k MM purchase consigned by fantastic breeders Mill Park Stud, sat outside the leader and gave nothing else a chance as she roared away to score easily.
"Congratulations to the winning connections, some of whom our most loyal clients and some very welcome new members to the Stable."
Another Mill Park success story, Modern Wonder is a half-sister to the promising Cocoa Doll, a Morphettville winner on April 9 who later in the day finished fourth at Listed level and is the third foal and third winner from the stakes-placed winner Elusive Wonder.
A daughter of Elusive Quality (USA), Elusive Wonder is a half-sister to stakes-winner Tantra and to the dam of stakes-winner Oak Park.
A granddaughter of the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude winner Freedom Fields, Elusive Wonder has a yearling sister to Modern Wonder than was snapped up by the China Horse Club for $420,000 from the Mill Park draft at this year's Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale.
Elusive Wonder lost a filly foal by I Am Invincible last year and was bred to the popular Yarraman Park stallion again last spring.
