Winsome Prince, trained by Melinda Finn, claimed honours in the Group 3 Dean Industrial Dapto Maiden Classic (520 metres) last Thursday night in one of the strongest fields in recent memory.
The son of Barcia Bale and Winsome Shiraz jumped well from box six before using a strong turn of foot down the back straight to race away and win in 30.02 secs.
"He handled himself the week before out of the five and the week before out of the four and he has got speed so we thought he was in with a chance if he could miss the five," Finn said.
"It was one of the strongest Dapto Maidens I have seen."
He will race at Bulli within the next fortnight.
