Spectrolite charged home in the last 50 metres to steal what looked like a sure win for favourite Military Grace in the AGL Solar Powered Stakes.
In her first race and starting from barrier 12, Spectrolite kicked off her career with a terrific run in a win from behind.
It was a bitter loss for Military Grace, who looked very good as she ran well-ahead in the last 200 metres. To be overtaken by Spectrolite at the last second must be very disappointing for her trainer.
In third place was Dinner Date, who moved ahead of the pack at the last moment to take the place convincingly, though she never looked a chance to win.
