2016 filly by Poet’s Voice ex Classical Flair (Distant Music)
MIRABAI is another new 2yo to race for the ‘HotToTrot1’ team this season and whilst she has plenty of size of scope, she looks the sort who shouldn’t take too long to come to hand. She is a half-sister to a winning filly called LOBSTER POT who I know her connections felt was better than she showed on the track. Her grandam BALLETA was a half-sister to the great DANCING BRAVE no less. We lease this filly from New England and Felley Priory Studs.
It is a huge privilege to have this filly in training with the legendary Sir Mark Prescott who turns 70 this year and needs no introduction having trained so many top class horses in his 48 years of holding a license since taking over from his mentor Jack Waugh. 2017 was another landmark year for the yard with his dual Group 1 winning sprinter Marsha smashing the European record for a price of a thoroughbred at public auction when realising a colossal 6 million guineas! Our visits to Heath House Stables in Newmarket this season promise to be very special indeed.
