Australian Bloodstock Buys Ebor Winner Mustajeer For Caulfield - Melbourne Cup Double
In some syndication news, Australian Bloodstock who raced Brave Smash on the Dubai World Cup raceday, have once again proved their high caliber choices with the purchase of Mustajeer, the winner of £1million Ebor Cup winner.
Another Australian Bloodstock purchase Raheen House (Sea The Stars) finished ninth in the Ebor after being caught on what looked to be the wrong side of the track in the straight.
Purchased before the Ebor by Australian Bloodstock, Mustajeer raced in the colours of David Spratt who will retain an interest as the son of Medicean will now head to Australian Kris Lees' Newcastle stable for the Caulfield – Melbourne Cup double.
Bred by Shadwell Stud, Mustajeer was previously purchased for £50,000 as a tried horse at Tattersalls in 2017.
A half-brother to the stakes-placed Makruma (Dubawi), Mustajeer is out of the Dynaformer mare Qelaan whose dam Irtahal (Swain) was third in the Group III Musidora Stakes.
Irtahal's dam Elhasna is a sister to the champion sprinter Dayjur and a half-sister to dual Group 1 winner Maplejinsky who is the dam of the champion Sky Beauty.
Mustajeer's sire Medicean (Machiavellian) was a wonderfully versatile stallion for Cheveley Park Stud before he was pensioned in 2017.
His son Dutch Art has taken over the mantle and he is the sire of Slade Power who is also making his mark at stud.
