The daughter of Bombastic Shiraz and Winsome Bluebird recorded splits of 9.04 and 21.92 before running home in a super 12.18, stopping the clock at 34.10 – just .03 outside the 600-metre track record held by Nellie Noodles.
The Meadows Manager Marg Long was on hand to watch the brilliant chaser have her first look at The Meadows circuit.
“The phone hasn’t stopped ringing today with people wanting to know when Miata was going to trial. To run 34.10 at her first look at the track into a strong head wind shows why she is rated so highly. Bring on Saturday!”
Miata will start from box one in Saturday’s $40,000-to-the-winner final in her first race start in Victoria. TAB Sportsbet have installed the fawn chaser a $1.30 favourite to take out the Macro Meats Zoom Top ahead of Shimaguni, who is at $5.
The night will also see the running of the Group 1 Macro Meats Temlee (525 metres) and the Group 2 Macro Meats Rookie Rebel, over 600 metres.
