Horses To Follow » Mitbaahy


Mitbaahy ran out an impressive winner of the Listed Scurry Stakes at Sandown on Saturday. David Egan was in no rush early on on Roger Varian’s colt, he took him back early from his draw in stall four behind a decent pace that Frankie Dettori set on Live In The Dream. He travelled really well through his race up on the outside of the field, he had to come outside Attagirl who came under a ride just in front of him, but he picked up well when his rider gave him a squeeze. He hit the front inside the furlong marker, and he went on strongly to hit the line a length and a half in front of runner-up Live The Dream.

Winner of a five-furlong maiden at Thirsk last August, and second in the Listed Harry Roseberry Stakes at Ayr in September, he is progressing nicely this season as a three-year-old. Second at Nottingham on his seasonal return, he stepped forward from that to win a conditions stakes at Hamilton next time over five furlongs nicely, and this was a step forward from that. He is a half brother to Del Mar Oaks winner Going Global, but he is a speedy colt. Held up and delivered late over five furlongs suits him well. He will be of interest wherever he goes next, but he will be of heightened interest at a track at which hold-up tactics over the minimum trip are rewarded.
