Millard's run of big race victories continued when a refreshed Ecurie came out for Greyville's Gr1 Garden Province Stakes, a weight-for-age event for fillies and mares which the stable had won each year since 1983.
Ecurie looked a little jaded when only able to finish fifth in the Gr1 SA Fillies Guineas some six weeks earlier, where she’d been odds-on favourite. Possibly because of that showing and the presence of first, second and fourth in the Guineas, Ecurie was easy to back at 11/10.
Transvaal filly Kamadeva went out to make the early running from Ecurie's stable-mate Gran Corredora, with the favourite hard against the bit in third place.
