Lightly raced two-year-old filly Kalinda waited until the last meeting of the harness racing season to register her first win but given the way she dispensed with her rivals it won't be her last.

The former Victorian filly was sent to Magra trainer Juanita McKenzie about six weeks ago with the hope of winning a race before the season ended.

She had no luck from poor draws in two of her three previous outings with a fourth of eight in Hobart enough to suggest the trainer had something with which to work.

But last night at UBET Park Hobart the filly gained a start as an emergency and from the pole position (gate one) she stepped straight to the front and was never headed on her way to an emphatic win in the UBET Pace over 20190 metres.

Kalinda scored by 14 metres from Karalta Stardust with first-starter Metrosilk almost two metres astern.

Kalinda (Jeremes Jet-De La Rosa) was partnered by Mark Yole who described the win as encouraging.

"This is the first decent draw she has had and I was very pleased with what she had to offer tonight," Yole said.

"She still has a bit to learn because she was hanging in on the corners but she has only had four starts and I reckon she has a future," he said.
