Mylady A Stakes First For The Grey Gatsby In Germany

The Grey Gatsby | Suzanna Lupa


Gestut Karlshof's homebred 2-year-old filly Mylady (Ger) (The Grey Gatsby {Ire}) posted an Aug. 22 debut score tackling 7 1/2 furlongs at Mulheim in her only prior start and doubled up with a narrow victory over one mile in Sunday's Listed Junioren-Preis at Dusseldorf to become the first stakes winner for her freshman sire (by Mastercraftsman {Ire}). The grey was rousted from the boxes to claim an early rail position and settled in a handy third after the initial strides. Locked in a pocket when trying to steal up the inside with 300 metres remaining, she was shuffled back to sixth passing the eighth pole and went through an array of gears once angled into the clear in the closing stages to nail stablemate Ariolo (Ger) (Reliable Man {GB}) by a head on the line for a career high.

Mylady is the only reported foal out of 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. placegetter 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}).
