Third Win for Mista Spot
Three year-old Sebring gelding Mista Spot won twice in Victoria earlier this year and added a third win to his tally when saluting at Sandown on Wednesday for the Anthony Freedman stable over 1800 metres.
Mista Spot was a $200,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Widden Stud draft and runs for a syndicate of Australian Bloodstock owners for whom he has now won over $74,000 in prizemoney.
Mista Spot is the second winner for Group I Auckland Cup winner Upsetthym, the Champion Stayer of NZ in 2004 and a half-sister to Group II winner Capecover.
Mista Spot as his name suggests features a prominent white spot on his near side flank.
The mark is not dissimilar to the white spot on Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown, although his is further forward in the girth/shoulder area.
Upsettyhm has a two year-old filly be Sebring to follow called Bring Me Diamonds, but she is the last foal from the mare who died last year.
