Miss makes it 20 stakes winners by Artie Schiller

The outstanding black-type winning sequence of Artie Schiller (USA) continued at Caulfield on Saturday when Mezeray Miss landed the LR City of Greater Dandenong Stakes (1400m).

Mezeray Miss (3f Artie Schiller – Aqualuna by Quest For Fame) accelerated in the straight to become the 20th stakes winner for the Emirates Park stallion..  She went into the event a two-time winner at Cranbourne and Sandown but was unproven in stakes company.

Mezeray Miss was sold by Huntworth Stud for $65,000 at the 2012 Inglis Sydney Classic Yearling Sale.  She has a 2yo half-sister named Atlantis (Domesday) with Richard Jolly at Morphettville.

“We had an easier option at Moonee Valley next week but elected to give her a shot at black-type,” trainer Matt Laurie said.  “I was surprised that she was so strong late after being so close to the speed.  It’s great to get a stakes win for her owners and hopefully she can add to it later on.”

Artie Schiller (El Prado) has enjoyed an outstanding recent spell that includes USA juvenile Group 1 winners We Miss Artie and My Conquestadory.   In Australia, Mezeray Miss is a member of his third southern crop and joins Laser Hawk, Lady Melksham, Big Chill, Secret Liaison and Moving Money as black-type winners on the local front.

Artie Schiller stands for a $22,000 (inc gst) service fee at Emirates Park’s Victorian arm at Digger’s Rest.
