QUAKER JET has produced Australia's first group 1 winner of the season.
IM READY JET earned the honour in the $50,000 MAORI MILE at Bendigo on Saturday night.
The Anton Golino-trained 5yo mare ran a career best 1:55.4 to bring up her fourth career group 1 success.
The Maori Mile was the first race in the Aurora Australis trotting series, which runs into and through the Summer of Glory Carnival.
This is Quaker Jet's second group 1 winner in a couple of weeks, with 3yo filly Fancy taking out a Vicbred Super Series final on New Year's Eve.
Quaker Jet's sire LOVE YOU has had a strong start to the season with a double at Maryborough and a run of winners at New Zeaaland meetings.
The NZ-bred duo of YOU REALLY GOT ME and KYVALLEY SURFRIDER provided the double.
