Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman achieved their goal with Bonniegirl at Hastings when the specialist fresh performer earned her first black type victory.

The Cambridge trainers produced the daughter of Darci Brahma to win Saturday's Listed New Zealand Bloodstock Finance Sprint in her first start since November.

Bonniegirl stormed home from back in the field under Matt Cameron to take the thick end of the stake and remain unbeaten in five first-up appearances.

"She's a little ripper and she still had a lot to do at the top of the straight," Forsman said.

"She's got black type and that's what she deserves – we know she goes best fresh and she's quite fragile so she's good for two or three runs.

"We'll keep ticking her over and look for any black type options."

Bonniegirl attacked the line with vigour to beat Underthemoonlight, who was also resuming, and Passing Shot.

"I got held up behind the second horse and once we were clear she really got home," Cameron said.

Less than an hour earlier at Randwick, Bonniegirl's former stablemate Mongolian Wolf made a winning debut for new owners Australian Bloodstock.

He was recently purchased by the syndication company and placed with champion trainer Darren Weir after winning three of his eight starts and placing in the Gr.2 Avondale Guineas for Baker and Forsman.
