Vinery sprinter Runway Star has ramped up her residual value with a successful defence of the LR Matrice Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville.

The Peter Moody trained mare made it back-to-back wins in the feature sprint on Monday for a syndicate comprising Vinery partners Tom Simon, Greg Perry, Neil Werrett, Alan Green, Steve McCann, Pat Hodgens and the studโ€™s general manager Peter Orton.

Runway Star had won the 2015 Matrice Stakes with a similar turn of foot and she will have a couple of weeks on the water-walker at Moodyโ€™s Mornington property before returning to Adelaide. The G3 Proud Miss Stakes (1200m) on May 21 is a likely target in what could be her final campaign before retiring to stud.

Vinery bought Runway Star for $300,000 at the 2012 Inglis Easter yearlings sale. Her stunning looks and superb pedigree made her the most expensive filly from the first crop of ill-fated sire Northern Meteor.

She is the first foal of Intuit (Commands) who was stakes placed at Randwick. Second-dam Wrap Around (Bletchingly) won the G1 William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley and her half-sister was Group 2 winning mare Rose Of Danehill (Danehill).
