This filly was purchased by Nick Bradley from the Goresbridge 2021 Breeze Ups for 27,000 Guineas.
She was one of 195 2yos to breeze up the final 2 furlongs of the Newmarket Rowley Mile track in the first week of June.
She breezed very well recording a 10.95 first furlong (6th best of 195) before then becoming a little unbalanced in the dip and running the uphill second furlong in 11.27 (72nd best of 195) recording an overall time of 22.22 (22nd best of 195). This was a deceptively quick breeze, demonstrating blistering speed in the first furlong and a very good overall time.
Nick purchased Eldrickjones on a similar theory who also recorded a quick first furlong and then a less impressive second furlong and Eldrickjones was 2nd on debut getting pipped on the line in a photo.
The filly was purchased from Albany Stud who breezed three horses at the sale and each of the horses breezed in similar fashion. Each horse recording a faster first furlong compared to second furlong. This pattern can often be a function of their prep and the jockey who rode each of the horses riding them in a similar style. Comparing each of the times the Mehmas filly recorded the quicker time and each of the horses slowed from the first furlong to the second furlong.
102 Twilight Son X Poyle Meg 11.2, 11.27
116 Galileo Gold X Rose of Mooncoin 11.37, 11.86
133 Mehmas X Smash 10.95, 11.27
Our filly stands at 15'3 and is a bigger model than the likes of Mas Poder which would suggest she is more a tomorrow horse than today. She is a very good mover and was covered in ringworm at the sales which would have surely had some effect on her well being. Once the ringworm has cleared up she will be alot better filly in herself.
She showed a high amount of ability in the breeze, coming from one of the lesser well known consignors and has a big potential upside for improvement despite already showing very good sale within her breeze.
She joins Kevin Ryan who trained Mas Poder for us to finish 4th at York on debut and now heads to Royal Ascot.
