CHARMED PRINCESS continued her outstanding form during the week to win the $81,800 Grafton Guineas over 1,600m.
The three year-old bay filly by CASINO PRINCE was an easy winner by over a length running the mile at 1.39.98 and the last 600m home in 35.26 sec.
CHARMED PRINCESS was bought at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sales in 2016 for only $34,000. The filly had the Guineas penciled in to win as far back as December 2016.
Ridden by local rider Matthew McGuren (above), the filly was allowed to settle second last in the field before making her run from the 800m.
Three wide from the 800m, she showed her accustomed turn of foot to put two lengths on the field at the 300m. From there the race was all but over.
CHARMED PRINCESS had a extremely successful carnival as she had previously won the Grafton Guineas Prelude over 1,400m two weeks prior.
That day she blitzed the field of eleven to win by a length.
The win now takes her career earnings to $125,025 from ten starts and five wins.
