More Joyous's breeding career has started with a winning one with 'Woman' saluting in the Tab Rewards Handicap over 1250 at Canterbury.
Jockey Kerrin McEvoy continued his outstanding form on the best bred horse in the country, settling her fourth in the one out, one back position. She was niggled from the 400m and got a little lost rounding the turn but her class shown through once she balanced up in the home straight for a comfortable victory going away from them.
Like a lot of her champion relations she looked a filly that will appreciate getting over a bit of a trip.
Her mother More Joyous was a champion, amassing over 4.5 million in prizemoney and Woman is her first foal by the unbeaten Frankel.
