Mehmas Off The Mark With A Double

Mehmas | Racing Post

Tally-Ho Stud’s Mehmas (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}), who with 146 2-year-olds boasts the largest representation of any first-season sire this year, made his presence felt by getting off the mark with two winners on Tuesday. The first, Bridge Dress Me (Ire), came over 1400 metres at Rome. Thirty minutes later, the Phillip Makin-trained Muker (Ire) defied odds of 20-1 to land a Newcastle maiden going 1000 metres on the all-weather.

Bred by Epona Bloodstock, Mehmas was a 62,000gns Tattersalls October Book 2 yearling bought by Church Farm. Pinhooked at the Craven Breeze Up Sale the following spring, he fetched 170,000gns from Peter and Ross Doyle on behalf of Al Shaqab Racing. Trained by Richard Hannon, Mehmas made eight starts during his lone campaign at two, for four wins including the G2 July S. and G2 Richmond S. He hit the board in both the G1 National S. and G1 Middle Park S.
