For the second-straight week Myalup jockey Lucy Warwick has won the feature race at a Saturday Belmont meet.

The 20-year-old claimed her 18th metropolitan victory of the season when she rode the Lindsey Smith-trained Mr Motown to victory in the $100,000 Beaufine Stakes (1000m).

Warwick and the six-year-old stallion got into a great position at the 750m mark and were first by the turn, before powering home to win by three-quarters of a length from Durendal, with Pretentious Chant finishing third.

Champion WA jockey William Pike and pre-race favourite Profit Street finished fourth, with the Giadresco trained gelding first up for this preparation.

Warwick and Mr Motown have an excellent record together, winning twice and placing four times from six starts together.

The sprinter has now taken his record to 11 wins from 43 starts and won more than $330,000 in prize money.

Warwick’s win comes just seven days after she rode her father’s horse, Material Man to victory in the $150,000 Group 3 Belmont Sprint (1400m).

The 2017 Bunbury Cup winning horse was first up after a five-month spell and has now won more than $1 million for the Warwick stable and his owners.
