bred three-year-old filly Tennessee Madness has broken her maiden status in great style
with a runaway win at Bendigo today at just her second career start.
Trained by David Hall the daughter of Danehill
made a one act affair of the Maiden Plate, scooting away from her rivals to win by four
and a quarter lengths in the 1100 metre event.
With Brett Prebble up the filly, who was a
$450,000 purchase at the 2000 Australian Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney, was much too
strong for Salierum, while Lucky Rose was a further length and a half back in third place.
The Tennessee family must be one of the best
in the Australian studbook. Tennessee Madness' first three dams are all Melbourne stakes
winners. She is from the Maribyrnong Plate (G2) and Blue DIamond Prelude (G3) winner
Tennessee Morn, a daughter of the mighty
Bletchingly, is herself out of the Kewney Stakes (G2), Storm Queen Stakes (G2) and Magic
Night Stakes (G2) winner Tennessee Vain.
Today's impressive maiden winner is a full
sister to the impressive stakes winning two-year-old filly Tennessee Midnight.
Also littered throughout the filly's pedigree
and the high class stakes winners Nina Haraka, Tennessee Jack, Tennessee Mist, Tennessee
Magic and Misty Vain.
