Todd Rawiller is probably best known as the brother of champion jockeys Nash and Brad.
But it was him in the spotlight after the trainer unveiled smart debutant Cinderconi at Muswellbrook on Thursday.
Cinderconi, a striking grey daughter of Nicconi, foiled the bulk of punters when she saluted at $26 in the Two Rivers Wines Maiden (1280m).
Volpe, trained by Team Hawkes and ridden by Robert Thompson, was sent out the $1.70 favourite, but had no answers when Adrian Layt aboard Cinderconi threw down the gauntlet about 150m from home.
In fact, first-starters filled the top two placings as Manhattan Mist rounded out the quinella.
Zero Cash illustrated you do get rewarded for persistence after finally greeting the judge at start 19 on her home track.
The Pat Farrell-trained mare justified her $3.50 favouritism by downing Local Hero by a length.
Other winners included Kokopu, Jack’s Image and Earstheking.
