Mylady A Group First For The Grey Gatsby at Krefeld

The Grey Gatsby


Gestut Karlshof's 3-year-old filly Mylady (Ger) (The Grey Gatsby {Ire}), who backed up an Aug. 22 debut win at Mulheim with a narrow score in Dusseldorf's Sept. 12 Listed Junioren-Preis, maintained her perfect record and went three-for-three in Sunday's G3 Dr Busch Memorial at Krefeld. The homebred grey, sent postward as the 11-5 favourite, was bustled along from the gates to remain in touch with the pack through the initial strides of this 8 1/2-furlong test. Angled wide for a clear passage in the straight, she quickened in impressive fashion to poach a decisive advantage approaching the final furlong and kept on strongly, despite rolling around in front, to hold the late surge of Schwarzer Peter (Ger) (Neatico {Ger}) by a neck, the pair four lengths clear of the remainder.

Mylady, who becomes the first pattern-race winner for her second-crop sire (by Mastercraftsman {Ire}), is the first of two foals produced by Minoris (Fr) (Dabirsim {Fr}), herself an unraced daughter of Monspa (GB) (Monsun {Ger}). Monspa, in turn, is kin to Listed Hampton Court S. victor and G2 Hardwicke S. third Persian Majesty (Ire) (Grand Lodge). Mylady's third dam Spa (GB) (Sadler's Wells) also produced Spasha (GB) (Shamardal), whose trio of stakes winners is headed by G1 Diamond Jubilee S. and G1 Sprint Cup hero Hello Youmzain (Fr) (Kodiac {GB}) and G2 Gran Criterium victor Royal Youmzain (Fr) (Youmzain {Ire}). Mylady's fourth dam is G3 Lancashire Oaks victrix Sandy Island (GB) (Mill Reef), herself kin to runaway G1 Epsom Derby-winning sire Slip Anchor (GB) (Shirley Heights {GB}). Sandy Island's descendants also include G1 Sisterna S. victor Summer Passage (Aus) (Snitzel {Aus}), with this being the dam line of legendary racemare and producer Schwarzgold (Ger) (Alchimist {Ger}). The winner's dam has 2-year-old colt by Counterattack (Aus) to come.
