Jockey Cejay Graham believes there is plenty of room for improvement after Bacinblac secured her maiden win at Kembla Grange on Tuesday.
The four-year-old mare, trained by Ron Quinton, came home strongly to win the i98 Illawarra Convoy Maiden Handicap over 1600m by three-and-a-half lengths from Dream Maiden and Premier Rose.
Graham said Bacinblac felt "very comfortable" and would "only learn" from the victory.
"I was super happy," she said.
"It's always a pleasure to ride for a man like Ron Quinton.
"Ron always presents his horses so well and I was always travelling like a winner. Bacinblac travelled strong, she was happy back there in a lovely rhythm.
"When I got into the clear, I did fell like I got there too soon even though it wasn't far out from the line.
"Bacinblac had a bit of a look around, but she had plenty left in her."
