Breeder, trainer and owner Michael Mehegan has several options for front-running mare Prussian Vixen after she looked right at home in stakes company at Caulfield on Saturday.
Making her black-type debut in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m), she was rated perfectly by Jake Noonan before skipping clear in the straight to defeat Silent Sedition and Ameristralia.
Mehegan is based at Mornington and one plan of attack is a home-track assignment in the Listed Hareeba Stakes (1200m) next month.
“I thought I’d be more nervous today that what I was.
“She will go right up in the ratings so we will sit down and have a look at the calendar before mapping out a program.
“There are some other nice stakes races against fillies and mares in Sydney and Adelaide.”
Prussian Vixen has won 6 races in 21 starts for prizemoney of $294,440 including $47,600 in bonuses courtesy of VOBIS.
Mehegan bred her by using Greta West Stud sire King Of Prussia (Anabaa) over Miss Eileen (Lion Hunter) who also sported his lilac and white colours during her racetrack career.
