Siyouni's Mise En Scene Swoops For Prestige Triumph


Mise En Scene |


Qatar Racing's unbeaten 2-year-old filly Mise En Scene (GB) (Siyouni {Fr}) backed up a four-length debut score at Haydock last month with victory on black-type bow in Saturday's G3 Tote Prestige S. at Goodwood and provided trainer James Ferguson with a landmark score in the seven-furlong fillies' test. The 7-1 chance went forward from the break and claimed a prominent slot along the rail behind the leading duo after the initial exchanges. Angled outside for a clear passage passing the quarter-mile marker, she was shaken up approaching the final furlong and produced a strong late burst to deny 7-2 favourite Daneh (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) by a neck in the dying strides.

“We've always really liked her at home and to get her from Sheikh Fahad, given her pedigree, was a real honour,” said Ferguson after securing the first pattern-race winner of his fledgling career. “She looks like she'll make a really nice 3-year-old to 4-year-old, but just came to hand ready for Haydock and she was impressive [on debut] there. That kept the dream alive for everyone at home and black-type was then the route. I knew she'd taken a step forward for her first run and it was great to see her finish out like that. I'll have to talk to Sheikh Fahad and the team before making a plan, but the [Oct. 8 G1] Fillies' Mile [at Newmarket] looks an option. She's obviously the best I've had and it feels brilliant.”

Mise En Scene, half-sister to a weanling filly by Zoustar (Aus), is the third of four surviving foals and lone scorer produced by an unraced half-sister to four black-type performers headed by G1 1000 Guineas heroine Speciosa (Ire) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}) and GIII Stars & Stripes Breeders' Cup Turf H. winner Major Rhythm (Rhythm). The February-foaled bay's second dam Specifically (Sky Classic), whose descendants also include G1 Irish Derby third Festive Cheer (Fr) (Montjeu {Ire}) and this term's stakes-winning G3 Prix Six Perfections runner-up (Zellie (Fr) (Wootton Bassett {GB}), is kin to MG1SW distaffer Pride (Fr) (Peintre Celebre) and G3 Prix de Flore victrix and G1 Prix Ganay third Fate (Fr) (Teofilo {Ire}). Pride has produced two black-type performers of her own, namely G2 Grand Prix de Chantilly and G2 Prix du Conseil de Paris victor One Foot In Heaven (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) and G3 Prix du Prince d'Orange and G3 Pride S. runner-up Queen (Fr) (Kingman {GB}).
