Layne's Star won her first race for connections in impressive fashion on Thursday.
Racing at her home track of Ballarat Layne's Star settled well for young apprentice Lachie King in the 1000 metre Super VOBIS event. Edging closer to the leaders on the turn, Layne's Star kicked clear running away to win by four lengths.
The win took her career earnings past the $50,000 mark and was a well deserved victory for Pat Cannon and all the team at Ballarat and Nagambie.
