Apprentice jockey Courtney Van Der Werf rode ‘Mary the Cat’ to victory, in her first start since being purchased from Scone three weeks ago.

Payne, a part owner of the horse, said it was a very pleasing result for the syndicate.

“We’re really happy with how everything worked out and it was a really good day,” he said.

“She won by three quarters of a length and you could tell pretty early that nothing was going to beat her,” he added.

Starting as a short odds favourite, Payne said she had almost been expected to win, but was still very pleased with the result.

The next race for ‘Mary the Cat’ will be a class 1 over 1600 at Grafton, where Payne plans to take three horses.

“I’ll just wait and see how she pulls up, but basically I’m looking at getting her a race every chance I get.

“At the moment just keep poking away for a while and then give her a bit of a break.”

Another of Payne’s horses, ‘Miss Sancity’ will have her first start at the meet in Grafton and will be rode by local jockey Sarah Gaffaney.

Payne has had his training licence for just over 12 months now and said he is really enjoying it and looking forward to future opportunities.
