‘She’s lovely and relaxed so I can’t think of reason why she won’t [get 1500 metres], she may even run a mile at some stage,” Begg said.

”It’s good to tick that box and it’s very important that she was able to win a group race today, so onwards and upwards for her.

Jockey James McDonald rode Bennetta in the 2013 Light Fingers Stakes and her was full of praise for her after the race was run.

”She can lengthen stride unbelievably and he’s [James McDonald] got a good understanding of her.” McDonald said.

”I think she’s going to finish out into a lovely mare and when she does she’s just going to be devastating.

”She just switches off which is what helps her in the races.

“She jumps so good and you can do whatever you want with her which is going to help in the future.”

Bennetta has now won three of her six race starts and has earned more than $285,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
