Connections of in-form mare Mizzy will give the back-to-back Group 1 runner up one final autumn assault before selling her at May’s Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale on the Gold Coast.
The Anthony Cummings-trained five-year-old is already a valuable breeding prospect with three stakes wins to her name, including two at Group 2 level.
She has went within a whisker of claiming a Group 1 this month when finishing a narrow runner up to Savatiano in the Canterbury Stakes before finishing second to Krone last Saturday in the Coolmore Classic.

Mizzy will remain with Cummings for the time being and is expected to line up again at Rosehill on Saturday, March 27.
“The plan is to start her next in the Emancipation Stakes in a couple of weeks and then she will tell us where we go next.” Breeder and part owner Rob Crabtree said.
“The National Sale is well timed for any buyers to look at the Tattersall’s Tiara – there’s so much upside. She will make a wonderful broodmare.”

Crabtree expects Mizzy will be a sought after purchase when she goes under the hammer in a few months time.
“Physically she is a stunning animal – as nice a mare as I‘ve ever seen,” he said.
“I bred her, her mother and also raced her grandmother. She gets her speed from the Magnus and Zoustar blood, but also some stamina from Serheed (sire of grandam Lady Knockout).”
“Mizzy is in career best form and her last three runs have been fantastic in Group Ones.
“In the Oakleigh Plate she got back from barrier 15 and was 12 wide on the turn and yet still managed to be beaten less than three lengths.”
“Her last two seconds have been outstanding. Yesterday she again came from a wide draw and was right there at the finish.”
