bay mare Meteoroid (Northern Meteor-Benatar, by Distant Music) prevailed in a tight photo finish to win the $100,000 Listed Birthday Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, defeating Silverstream & Rebel King. Meteoroid, a $90,000 purchase at the 2013 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Kitchwin Hills, improved her record to 8 wins (including the Listed Belmont Newmarket) and 6 placings (including the Listed WATC Jungle Mist Classic) from 20 starts for $300,590 in earnings.
