Hastings-trained Penny Royal added to her outstanding record on the Taupo track with another decisive win there on Wednesday.
The 5-year-old mare came from last on the home turn in a six-horse field to take out a Rating 74 race over 1100m by 1-3/4 lengths.
It was the daughter of Per Incanto's fourth win and all of her victories have come on the Taupo track.
Penny Royal is officially trained by the training partnership of Guy Lowry and Grant Cullen but spends the majority of her time at Mary Darby's beach property in Pōrangahau.
The mare is a lot more settled in a small stabling environment and also thrives on being able to be worked on the beach.
Penny Royal hadn't raced since finishing 10th of 14 over 1600m on the third day of the Hawke's Bay spring carnival, on October 17, but had the benefit of a couple of recent jumpouts to help fit her for Wednesday's fresh-up run.
Jockey Shaun McKay was content to let the mare settle at the back of the field until the home turn, where he angled her into the clear and she powered home for a comfortable win.
Penny Royal is out of the Perfectly Royal mare Mint, who was also the winner of four races and filled a first four placing 14 times from 28 starts.
Feilding farming couple Neil and Yvonne Managh bred Penny Royal and they race her in partnership with their son, Andrew, and daughter, Geraldine.
