Taleah McMullen scores first Listed win at Albion

Taleah McMullen achieved a major career highlight when she steered Annika Magic ($12) to a nail-biting win in tonight's Fleur De Lil Ladyship Stakes at Albion Park. 

It was the teenager's first Listed winner and comes just over two years since she drove her first TAB winner at Redcliffe on July 6, 2017. 

It was the seventh time McMullen has partnered the Grinfromeartoear mare and their second win as a combination. 

"I'd say she's probably the best horse I've driven," McMullen said moments after the race. 

"I just sit behind her but she does all the work.

"It's just amazing to be able to win a race like this tonight over the Winter Carnival." 

Annika Magic paced the 1660m in 1:54.9. 

The mile-rate was a staggering 1:51.4.

Heavily supported favourite Fame Assured was forced to race three-wide the entire trip and tired late. 

Stablemate Eleniark followed her throughout and made a late dive to finish third.

The Daren Garrard-trained Our Millwood Maizie took a run along the sprint lane to finish a narrow second.
