Cintiarna Upsets The 2013 Temlee

The brilliant Cintiarna – paying the juicy odds of $19 – upstaged her more fancied rivals to win the Temlee over 525 metres in brilliant fashion.

The daughter of and Hello Sienna began perfectly from her wide draw of eight, crossing the star-studded field with ease. After stopping the first sectional timer at 5.07 – and the rest of her rivals jamming up on the first turn – the black chaser set up a race-winning lead as the pair Boris Fields and settled behind the tearaway leader.

With Boris Fields making some ground, Cintiarna rounded the back corner after a 17.77 sectional, with her strength showing the way, striding to a two and three quarter length win in 29.76 (11.99 run home) over Boris Fields and race favourite Proven Nitro, who was a further three and a quarter lengths away in third.

The win capped off a whirlwind few months for owner/trainer Sandra Collins, who won the Cup with her star back in January.

The win was Cintiarna’s 16th from just 31 starts, with her prizemoney more than doubling to $190,470 thanks to the $100,000 winner’s cheque. The 31-kilogram star will now line up in next week’s heats of the 1 Maurice Blackburn , with the final worth $250,000 to the winner on March 2.
