The two year old son of Art Major worked to the front in the early stages of the race and set a solid tempo.

Race favourite Spankem issued a strong challenge in the home straight but Alta Maestro repelled that and kicked clear to win by two lengths.

The mile rate was a sizzling 1:54.4 for the 1700 metre trip.

Owned by Stuart and Liz Leadley, Alta Maestro was a $100,000 purchase from the Alta Breeding draft at the 2016 Australasian Classic Yearling Sale.

Alta Breeding will be offering a half sister to Alta Maestro from the highly anticipated first crop of A Rocknroll Dance at the upcoming 2017 Australasian Classic Yearling Sale.
