Stole, who cost her owner Ross McCarroll just $NZ100 as a yearling, landed a career-best win at Flemington on Saturday.

The daughter of Desert Fox was purchased at an unreserved sale and trainer Brian Jenkins said it was not unusual for horses to be sold that cheaply in New Zealand.

“Ross had one bid at $NZ100 and she was knocked down to him,” Jenkins, who won the 1998 Melbourne Cup with Jezabeel, said.

“It’s no reflection on her pedigree as she’s by a Sadler’s Wells horse out of an American mare so she’s got a nice pedigree and a bit of quality about her.”

Jenkins said Stole could back up in next Saturday’s Group Three Easter Cup (2000m) at Caulfield.

“I’ve won the Banjo Paterson for the owner the past two years with Figure Of Speech and maybe we’ll run her in that and see if we can win it three years in a row,” he said.

“She could win a good race in the spring.”

The Banjo Paterson (2500m) is at Flemington in early July.

Stole was having her first start beyond 1700m in the Riding For The Disabled Plate (2000m) and was sent out an easing $3.70 favourite after an unlucky 10th to Nakaaya last start in the Group Two Sunline Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley.

Ridden by Danny Nikolic, the five-year-old settled seventh and cruised up to the leaders before scoring by two lengths from You I Find ($13) with Invincible You ($10) a short half-head away third.

“She won easily. She was always going to be better over the mile and a quarter, she’d been having terrible luck up to the mile (1600m),” Jenkins said.

Earlier trainer Tom Dabernig landed his first Flemington winner when Sleeque took out the Second Chance Plate (1600m).

“It’s a great thrill,” 34-year-old Dabernig, who is his uncle David Hayes’ assistant trainer at Flemington but prepares a small team in his own right, said.

“At the mile she just naturally travelled a little bit closer and when he gave her a little bit of room she really attacked the line.

Ridden by leading apprentice Jake Noonan, Sleeque ($8) enjoyed a nice trail in fourth place and ran down the leader Our Tigress ($13) to win by a head with easing $4.20 favourite Gail 1-1/2 lengths away third.

“She’s a real pleasure to train, she does her best whenever she goes around,” Dabernig said.

“Her form statistics said she was a query at the mile but she’s got that really good residual fitness now and if ever she was going to run it out today was the day.”

The Brief Truce six-year-old mare is raced by pastoralists Adrian and Marg Harvey who have a cattle feed lot at Hay in the western Riverina region of NSW.
