The capable Live Or Die mare held other NZ-bred mares in Tara Royale and Lady Peyton, with former Canterbury mares Vienna Bromac (5th) and Asset Rich (6th).

San Fran Lady ran 1:57.8 for the 1609m to win the final, but paced a quicker 1:56.2 at Newcastle the previous week.

She is now unbeaten in four NSW starts for trainer Shane Tritton. Her  lifetime record now stands at seven wins from 20 starts, for $50,834 in stakes.

San Fran Lady was bred and raced in NZ by former HRNZ president Max Bowden, and wife Frances.
The Bowdens’ bred San Fran Lady from Emcil, a 3-win Miles McCool mare from the same family as former star pacers Jack Cade (16 wins & $742,232) and Frederick (nine wins, 1:58.1).

Her half-brother Union Buster was also sold to Australian interests after winning once and picking up five minor placings for the Jones stable.
