No Mystique Surrounding Undefeated 3YO
Broodmare Mystique (Montjeu-Seamist, by Beaufort Sea) may not have inherited her dam's ability on the track, however she is proving to be as safe-as-houses in the breeding shed. The stakes-placed winner is a daughter of Group-1 winner Seamist (also multiple Group 1-placed) whose female progeny have all gone on to be successful producers including Spray whose Group 1-performed daughter Corsage is dam of the Karaka 2YO Million-placed Group winner Aotea Lad. Following Saturday's short-priced win at Caulfield Mystique's Shooting To Win 3YO son Mystery Shot remains undefeated from five starts – the last three at Caulfield – and it's likely trainer Lindsey Smith will be eying black-type possibilities for the Spring carnival. Mystique's other four foals are all winners, including stakes-winning Replique and this season's 2YO Mystique Falcon. A winner at Sandown from three starts, the $220,000 NZB yearling graduate, trained by Ciaron Maher and David Eustace, performed with credit in the recent Listed Taj Rossi Series Final at Flemington won by Cherry Tortoni.
