First winner for Mahisara
NOVEMBER 20, 2017: Wattle Brae Stud first season sire Mahisara is on the move in the freshman stallion ranks with his first winner and initial city performer being registered within a few hours of each other last Saturday. Not too long after Miss Sara had finished runner-up on the Doomben program in Brisbane, Mishani Krishna scored on debut at Toowoomba on a day everyone at Wattle Brae Stud will remember for a very long time.
The victory of Mishani Krishna at Toowoomba on Saturday evening was exceptionally well received as it proved to be the very first winner of MAHISARA's stud career. This precocious juvenile filly won in grand style and established her sire as the second freshman stallion in Australia to be represented by a first-crop 2-year-old winner in 2017/18.
Bred and raced by Mishani Enterprises Pty Ltd (Mgr: M D Crooks), Mishani Krishna is trained by Ben Currie and was ridden to victory by apprentice jockey Michael Murphy, earning her connections a total of $20,550 in prizemoney and bonuses from just one start.
Mishani Krishna's win came a few hours after fellow MAHISARA first-crop 2-year-old filly Miss Sara placed second at Doomben — picking up a total $21,300 in prizemoney and bonuses. The youngster also placed third at the Sunshine Coast on debut and has already amassed $24,500 after just two starts.
Following the events of Saturday afternoon-evening, Mahisara now sits in second position on the first season sires standings of 2017/18. These are hugely encouraging developments for our very promising sire-son of More Than Ready (USA).
