Prussian Vixen has defeated a talented field of mares to record a career-best win to date in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield this afternoon.

Prussian Vixen flew the gates and immediately took up the pace in the Bellmaine Stakes; setting a fair tempo for the field of eleven alongside the likes of Choose and Thames Court.

Hugging the rails rounding onto the final straight, jockey Jake Noonan was greeted with a strong late kick and was another runner who was able to hold on in the dying stages of the race at Caulfield this afternoon to claim a maiden black type win.

Noonan delivered a smart performance aboard Prussian Vixen to win the Bellmaine Stakes and was thrilled to chalk up another black type victory.

“She’s in terrific form and every time the bar is raised, she always stepped up.

“This was a classy race today. I know they’re not 1200m horses but they’re classy animals.

“For her to do all the work and hold them off late, good on Michael. She’s earned over $200,000 in prize money and it’s a good for him to get a bit of black type with her,”

Prussian Vixen was trainer Michael Mehegan’s first ever black type runner this afternoon and the Mornington horseman was understandably thrilled to saddle the mare to success.

“We’re very happy and proud of the team,” Mehegan said.

“When she ran third at Moonee Valley we looked at it. We did look at Tassie, but we decided to come here after she’d won here.

“This prep every time we’ve stepped her up she improved and when she won here she beat Ameristralia at level weights, so we were pretty confident.

“Her work over the last two weeks has been improved. She might not be the best-bred horse in the country but she’s tough.

“I’m very happy, just thrilled for everyone.”

Silent Sedition is sure to take plenty of benefit from her impressive run for second in the Bellmaine Stakes, while Ameristralia ran on for a classy third.
