Jockey Matt McGillivray has landed his first Group One success, producing the ride of his life on Winning Ways in the Queensland Oaks.
Winning Ways has won the Group One Queensland Oaks, beating Dawson Diva and Lady Cuvee in the Group One race for three-year-old fillies.
Winning Ways, who was raced by the late Paul Makin, will carry the successful owner's colours in the Queensland Oaks.
Paul Makin, the owner of dual hemisphere Group One winner Starcraft, has died aged 82.
Queensland's best Oaks hopeful, the Gary Newham-trained Winning Ways, has the right breeding to be a top stayer.
