Stella Lante Wins at the Valley

Oct 11, 2013

MORPHETTVILLE trainer John Hyam enjoyed his first Melbourne winner when Stella Lante saluted at Moonee Valley last week.

Ridden by Vlad Duric, the talented mare finished too strongly over her preferred trip of a mile, beating Princess Rock by a half length with Bia Diamond in third.

It was a breakthrough win for both Hyam and Stella Lante, who finished second in the Group 2 Fillies Classic at the same track and distance last year.

Hyam finished fourth in the Adelaide premiership last year with 19 winners at a 22.9 per cent strike rate.
