Vaquera has won the Group 3 Tibbie Stakes at Newcastle today September 19, 2013.
The four-year-old claimed the win in a photo finish that involved an impressive five horses crossing the line seemingly as one.
Vaquera has now won three of her 10 race starts and has earned more than $180,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
The High Chaparral mare was first-up in the 2013 Tibbie Stakes for the spring carnival after taking part in two Sydney trials.
Vaquera’s most recent result was a third placing in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks at Eagle Farm Racecourse on June 1, 2013.
Her last win was in the $35,000 Australian Turf Club Handicap at Canterbury in April this year.
The galloper is trained at Royal Randwick Racecourse by Gai Waterhouse and is nominated for the $2.65 million Caulfield Cup and $6.2 million Melbourne Cup later in the carnival.
Her next task is likely to be the Group 1 The Metropolitan, which will take place at her home track of Randwick on Saturday October 5, 2013.
