Victorian harness racing mare Milly Perez also made a one-act affair of the $20,000 George Johnson for fillies and mares in Hobart, Tasmania on Friday night

Milly Perez settled last from her outside second-row draw (9) but inside the first lap her trainer-driver Michael Stanley sent her around the field to easily roll to the front and that was the end of the penny section.

The well-bred Four Starzzz Shark mare set a solid tempo and hit the line 12 metres clear of Queens Advocate with Courageous Katie a fast-finishing third.

"I've only had this mare for about five weeks but as soon as she arrived in the stables I made plans to run her in this race (George Johnson)," Stanley said.

"I've been coming to Tasmania for quite a few years and I knew this race was on the calendar so it's mission accomplished.

"I'll be aiming her at some of the country cups because she will definitely be up to that class.

"There's a bit of scope with her and if we can pick up a couple of wins in features shell pay her way."
