Central Western NSW Sire Dominant in Perth



MOSAYTER, a superbly bred importation standing on a modest fee at Louise Ellis’s Argyle Thoroughbreds stud at Panuara near historic Orange in central western NSW, has been one of the most successful sires for Perth racing over the past six weeks.


In that period he was represented on the city’s tracks by five individual winners of eight races and at three of the meetings had doubles and on one occasion provided a quinella.  The only runners at the Perth races by Mosayter in this period, the contributors were all produced from the use of this lightly raced winner of two races at a mile in succession in Great Britain bred in America on a cross of two giants of breeding, Storm Cat over a Mr Prospector mare, in Western Australia prior to his transfer to NSW in 2010.


The impressive sequence of successes in Perth kicked off with a double and a quinella on the Oaks program at Ascot on Saturday March 31. His 4-year-old gelded son Mickey Drippin won the opening race and two 6-year-old daughters, Felined (the winner) and Rose (second), were separated by a short neck at the finish of the Myer Fashions Handicap over 1200m.


At the meetings of April 7 and 28, both at Ascot, Mosayter had the remarkable achievement of doubles in successive races filled by the same runners.They were Travinator (3yo), won a1000m event by 1.3 lengths on the first day and one at 1100m by 1.8 on the second, and Solsay (4yo), sent out favourite he won by a head and 1.5 lengths over 1200m and then by a half length at the same distance.  Solsay has run13 times for five wins, four of them and four minor placings in the city, while the four appearances by Travinator have resulted in three wins and debut second. He has also won two trials impressively.


Another of the Mosayter offspring to record two Perth wins in the past six weeks has been the 4-year-old gelding Mr Moet. He won at Ascot on April 21, finished a close fourth at Belmont on May 5 and then backed up for a win at this Perth track on Saturday. A1400-2200m performer, he has raced18 times for seven wins, five of them, all in Perth, in his last eight appearances.  Mosayter had restricted opportunity in the West, but has also supplied the Perth winners Shajezar (two Listed placings), Final Cut (Listed fourth), Roman Nose, My Sweet Lil, Rose and Dontloitermosoyter. 


Not only is Mosayter bred on the awesome Storm Cat – Mr. Prospector cross, the same pattern that produced Coolmore’s good dual hemisphere sire Tale of the Cat, but he is from one of the world’s top families, one used successfully by The Queen, Aga Khan and Darley’s Sheikh Mohammed.  The dam, Bashayer, a Cheshire Oaks second, is a half-sister to six stakes winners, including Nashwan (European Horse of the Year, English Derby, Two Thousand Guineas winner), Nayef (England Champion 3YO, four Group1s, Dubai World Cup third) and Unfuwain (dual Group 2 winner; Group1 second). Each of these three have sired Group1 winners and have sons at stud in Europe.


Mosayter’s great grandam Highclere won the French Oaks and English One Thousand Guineas. Bred and raced by The Queen, she was by Queen’s Hussar, the grandsire through his son Seventh Hussar of the great Australian matriarch Denise’s Joy.
