Tara Madgwick - Thursday May 3

Miss Scorcher was a brilliant front running winner at Kembla on April 7 and showed a similar turn of foot from the gates at Wagga when sent out a short priced favourite.

Miss Scorcher as a yearlingShe cruised to the front for Jeff Penza and dashed away from her rivals to win the 1200 metre sprint by a commanding four lengths.

A $78,000 Inglis Premier Session II purchase from the Bucklee Farm draft for Murray Livestock / DJI Bloodstock, Miss Scorcher has won two of three starts and looks to have a very bright future.

Miss Scorcher is one of three winners from Special Mention, a minor winner by Exceed and Excel whose third dam is former champion sprinting filly Special.

Eureka Stud will offer a full brother to Miss Scorcher at the Magic Millions National Yearling Sale as Lot 2036.

Miss Scorcher is one of five winners by Sun Stud's promising Northern Meteor son Fighting Sun, who stands this spring at a fee of $15,400.
