Mackenzie benefitted from a great Jordan Stratton drive and although she shied at another runner on the home bend, she won easily after showing an amazing turn of foot in the home straight.

The official margin was two and a quarter lengths, while her time of 1:53.2 was a new lifetime best for the four year old mare.

Mackenzie began racing in America this year after completing a successful three year old season in Australia and New Zealand.

She has now had eight starts north of the equator for two wins and two placings. Overall her lifetime earnings now stand at $343,361.

Bred by Sloys Company and raised at Pepper Tree Farm, Mackenzie is a half sister to dual Derby winner Vincent and out of the four time Group One winning mare Kept For Pleasure.
