Veuve Clicquot dug deep to post an overdue success at Hastings where she had to overcome a chequered passage.

The Rock ‘n’ Pop mare was in trouble when hampered at the start, but she rallied admirably to win over 1400 metres.

The four-year-old was a deserved winner as she had placed in two of her previous three appearances for trainer Lee Somervell.

Veuve Clicquot was a $12,000 Karaka graduate and is a daughter of Megan’s Tough Love.

The dam was a Listed winner in North America and she’s a three-quarter sister to multiple stakes winner Secret Partner.

Headline acts in this pedigree include the Gr.1 Middle Park Stakes winner Formidable and the Gr.1 Dewhurst Stakes winner Adjal.
