FOUR-YEAR-OLD mare Hingus Rose won her first start in a race at Doomben on a heavy track as a two-year-old.
She replicated that effort more than 18 months later, winning a 1MW (1200m) at the same track on a rain-affected surface on Saturday, October 6.
When she won on debut, she was ridden by apprentice Tiffani Brooker.
This time around it was another female apprentice, Stephanie Lacy, onboard when she won by a half-length as a $6.50 chance.
"It was fantastic to see Hingus Rose rack up another metropolitan win,'' said trainer Stuart Kendrick.
"She always puts in a big effort and it was no different today,'' he said.
It was Hingus Rose's second win from her past three, having won at the Sunshine Coast Benchmark 75 (1200m) two runs back.
She's one of the most consistent horses in the stable, with Saturday's win taking her record to six wins and eight placings from 20 career starts.
