Brilliant mare Goodtime Marjie, who was bred at Goodtime Lodge and is owned by Ian and Judi Slater, completed a clean sweep of the Metropolitan Cup series when she captured the $25,275 Final at Tabcorp Park Melton on Friday night (February 20).
Starting from the No 3 gate, the brown mare began smartly and rolled straight to the front.
After a leisurely first half of the last mile, Goodtime Marjie reeled off quarters of 28.1 and 26.6 to claim the thick end of the prize.
The mile rate for the 1720 metres was 1:56.5.
The $16,673 winner’s cheque boosted Goodtime Marjie’s stakes tally to an impressive $68,868, the result of 10 wins and two placings from 19 starts.
She is the seventh foal and fourth winner of Next Strike, a winning What’s Next mare.
