DARREN Weir's patience with former New Zealander Culminate paid off as the mare raced into group 1 calculations with a determined victory in the Tristrarc Stakes at Caulfield.

Prominent owner Sean Buckley, who previously owned sprint sensation Miss Andretti, told Weir that he would be sending a number of high-class mares to his Ballarat stables earlier this year and did not disappoint the country maestro when Culminate landed on his doorstep.

"He sent me quite a few mares and she was one of them. We haven't had a lot of runners but I'm sure he will be very happy with that result," Weir said.

"She's a great horse and a really good horse to train. She just does her work and eats, she's a very basic sort of horse but she gives you no problems and they are the ones you want."
