2018 bay filly by Pride Of Dubai (Aus) ex Millestan (Ire) (Invincible Spirit (Ire))
Mille Miglia is a strong and scopey filly by the champion first season sire Pride Of Dubai, a son of the mighty Street Cry whose dam, Al Anood, is a half-sister to Rafha (a French Oaks winner herself), the dam of top class sires Invincible Spirit and Kodiac. The dam, Millestan, was a two time winner on the track herself and has produced four winners from five runners at stud to date. These include the Listed-placed Weetles who was trained by Clive Cox. Millestan is a daughter of Invincible Spirit so this is a clever mating as it a creates some maternal inbreeding of Rafha’s dam Eljazzi. Mille Miglia has now grown into her attractive shape, and is bred to improve with age and a step up in trip. She is a lovely prospect for this, her three-year-old season.
