Flying mare Miss Leonidas raced true to form to land an all-the-way win in Saturday’s Caulfield Sprint.

Fresh from a career-best close second to Everest runner Nature Strip in the group 1 Moir Stakes, Miss Leonidas showed plenty of courage to hold off $3.90 co-favourite God’s Thunder by a half-length to win the group 2 $300,000 Caulfield Sprint (1000 metres).

Minutes after Miss Leonidas’ win, Nature Strip led the high-class Everest field to inside the 200m and ran fourth in the world's richest turf race.

Jockey Steve Baster admitted he feared the worst when God’s Thunder railed through and looked likely to overhaul the mare inside the 100m.

“She did a good job to give a kick, she was laying in but was too good, she was the best horse in the race,” he said.

Bendigo trainer Shaun Dwyer, who was in Queensland honouring a long standing commitment, would have been proud of his mare who has banked $670,800 and adds a group 2 win to her CV.

She has proved a canny investment for owner Todd Lichter who bought the Barathea mare Happy Play in foal to I Am Invincible and the result was Miss Leonidas.

Miss Leonidas was presented with the lead when speedy McLaren ($9.50) stumbled at the start.

“My only concern was the inside barrier [one], I’d have preferred to draw out. She was a bit tardy out then went a bit too fast,” Baster said.

It was the third win in the Caulfield Sprint for Baster who previously won on Royal Discard (1992) and Jet Spur (2005).

Miss Leonidas continued the good recent record of mares who have now won four of the past seven editions, adding to the wins of Miracles Of Life (2014), Luminosity (2015) and Snitty Kitty (2017).
