Misty Brook Wins on New Years Eve at Nowra
Jan 08, 2021
Misty Brook got the New Year's Eve celebrations started early after taking out the 1600 metre Maiden SW race at Nowra on 31 December 2020. Winona Costin took the steer and they jumped from barrier 7.
Misty Brook has never been too far away from the money and she certainly deserved this win.
Misty jumped super from the gates and was eventually able to slot in and take up a rails run, trailing only a couple of lengths behind the leader of the pack. She travelled well for Winona and looked to be putting herself in a nice position during the run. As she approached the turn, Misty seemed strong in running. Happily, a split opened up to Misty on the corner of the home straight and, with clear running in front of her, she was able to loom up to the leader on her inside and bravely stick her head down on the line for a fantastic maiden win, beating home Jesse James in 2nd and Tip Top Timing in 3rd.
Misty's will to win was a thrill to watch and it sure was a nice ending to what was a hard year for all!
We are very happy that she now has the 'maiden monkey' off her back and hope that she is back in the winner's stall very soon.
Thank you to Winona for a great ride.
Big congratulations to Misty's owners, Jeff and Julie. Thank you for your ongoing support over the years.
