Queensland-bred filly, Mafia Princess, has scored the biggest win of her career - the $100,000 Magic Millions Rockhamption 2YO Plate (1100m).

Sent to the lead from the outset by Scott Galloway, Mafia Princess was then able to slip clear of her rivals at the top of the long straight and then hold out the red hot favourite Snipzu to win in a thrilling head bobbing photo finish.

A $10,000 bargain buy for part owner and trainer Leigh Wanless, Mafia Princess is a daughter of Hidden Dragon (pictured) and was offered for sale by the farm which stands the sire, Lyndhurst Stud Farm - as agent for breeder Bill Kajewski.

"She was lean and mean," Wanless said when asked why he bought Mafia Princess.

"And you saw that in the race when she looked back at Snipzu, flicked her ear and refused to let her go past."

"My wife Lee actually picked her out at the sales. She liked her and we bought her for $10,000."

One of 75 impressive winners by Danehill's sire son Hidden Dragon, Mafia Princess is one of three winners produced by the winning Raise a Stanza mare, Eureka Blues.

Mafia Princess is a graduate of last year's Magic Millions QTIS Yearling Sale along with the likes of Lady Colours, Discreet, Love Laughing and Doubtfilly.
