Catmosphere, F, 2, by Storm Cat
The Niarchos homebred Miesque, a two-time GI Breeders'
The Niarchos homebred Miesque, a two-time GI Breeders'Cup Mile heroine and a champion in France as well as the U.S., became one of the few top race fillies to match such credentials in the breeding shed. Her first foal was Kingmambo (Mr. Prospector), a three-time Group 1 winner and now a leading sire; her second, East of the Moon (Private Account), also captured a trio of Group 1 events. Miesque also produced the GSW & MG1SP Miesque's Son (Mr. Prospector), GSW Mingun (A.P. Indy) and SW Moon Is Up (Woodman). That sort of record has escalated the demand when her daughters venture into the sales ring. Monevassia (Mr. Prospector) placed at two in 1996, but sold for $1.75 million in 1998 at Keeneland November and later produced European champion juvenile filly Rumplestiltskin (Ire) (Danehill). While Myhrr didn't make it to the races, that didn't stop her from selling for $4.6 million to Jayeff B Stables as a broodmare prospect in 2000. After producing a colt and a filly by A.P. Indy, Myhrr foaled this Storm Cat filly in 2005; after selling for $1 million at KEESEP, the chestnut entered training for the partnership of Jayeff B and renowned chef Bobby Flay. Let go at 10-1 despite a solid worktab, Catmosphere settled in midpack, but was shuffled back a bit on the turn. She regrouped entering the stretch, hit the front in midstretch and, despite drifting out, maintained a 1 1/4-length margin at the wire over Madam Bling (War Chant), with Show 'Em All (Proud Citizen) a troubled third. Flay and his wife, actress Stephanie March, were on hand to greet the filly in the winner's circle. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $31,200.
