Mutawaajid off the mark at Scone

Miss Ubiquity notched the initial win for Emirates Park freshman Mutawaajid at Scone on Friday.

The Brett Thompson-trained filly had finished runner-up at her two previous outings at Parkes and Gunnedah before scoring a comfortable three-quarter length victory in the Segenhoe Country Plate (1100m).

Miss Ubiquity (2f Mutawaajid – My Fabulous Star by Scenic) was an $18,000 buy at the 2012 Inglis Classic Sale.  Her Gulgong based trainer went back and bought a Mutawaajid – Ghezlaan colt for $15,000 at the latest Classic Sale last week.

Miss Ubiquity was bred by Melbourne businessman Barry Taylor and is the final foal of talented mare My Fabulous Star who won six races including the 1998 Australia Day Plate at Moonee Valley.

My Fabulous Star is a half-sister to My Flashing Star (G3 VATC Blue Diamond Prelude) and the dams  of Lachlan River (G1 Queensland Derby) and French Bid (G2 SAJC Swettenham Stud Stakes).

The extended family also includes the Taylor-bred G1 winners My Brilliant Star (AJC Oaks), Sudurka (VRC Salinger Stakes) and Shot Of Thunder (MRC Toorak Hcp).

Mutawaajid (Redoute’s Choice) stands for a $7,700 (inc gst) fee at Emirates Park.  Unbeaten as a two year-old, he proceeded to win the G2 Randwick Royal Sovereign Stakes (1200m) and Rosehill Hobartville Stakes (1400m) at three.

Sent to England for the 2007 summer sprints, his best efforts included a couple of fourth place finishes in the G1 Haydock Sprint Cup and G3 Newbury World Trophy.
