Top Australian Filly Mosheen to Visit Deep Impact
Written by Ian Tapp | Oct 23, 2012 |
Four-time group I-winning filly Mosheen, who fractured a hind leg in the Oct. 20 Yellowglen Tristarc Stakes (Aus-II), has been retired and is scheduled to be bred to leading Japanese sire Deep Impact in 2013. Katsumi Yoshida, who stands Deep Impact at his family's Shadai Stallion Station, purchased a 50% share in the Fastnet Rock (AUS) (TrueNicks,SRO) filly in January.
Mosheen is currently recovering from her injury at a farm in Australia and will ship to Japan next year to be bred on Northern Hemisphere time.
After winning her racecourse debut, Mosheen ran second to Sepoy (AUS) (TrueNicks) in the AAMI Golden Slipper (Aus-I) at 100-1 odds. At 3 she developed into one of the best fillies in Australia, taking the 2,500-meter Crown VRC Oaks (Aus-I); the Australian Guineas (Aus-I) and Turnpoint Royal Randwick Guineas (Aus-I) against colts, and the Vinery Stud Storm Queen Stakes (Aus-I).
So here's one for the TrueNicks readers: What do you think of this mating?
