Mehmas 2yo's To Follow (2021)

Normal service was resumed on Friday afternoon at Leicester when Gubbass set the ball rolling again for last year's two-year-old and leading first crop sire Mehmas. The seven-year-old stallion Mehmas, who was also trained by Richard Hannon and stands at Tally Ho Stud for 25,000 euros an increase from 7,500 euros from the previous year. 

The Bay Acclamation horse was purchased at the Tattersalls 2015 October Yearling Sales for a bargain 62,000 gns, you could say it was money very well-spent as in his only season racing Mehmas earned a total of £305,953 prize money in what was a spectacular season winning two group races along the way including the Group 2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood and with it a prize of £113,00. 

It’s always unknown how the sire's offspring will perform but with 58 individual winners in what was a brilliant start to his stud career you could say it started with a bang.

Muker trained by Philip Makin and owned by familiar owners Syps Limited. The £27,000 purchase certainly paid his purchase fee back and more after winning on the opening day of the delayed 2020 season at Newcastle at 20/1 and then went onto to finish third at Royal Ascot in what was a brilliant performance in the Windsor Castle and another tremendous effort over in Ireland finishing third in the Group 3 Pat Smullen Stakes. 

Clive Cox unleashed another Mehmas offspring called Supremacy at Windsor in June last season and despite the £65,000 purchase finishing sixth on debut the bay colt made no mistake next timeout a month later at the same course when putting in an impressive performance and heading to the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood with decent claims. Another impressive win made him a name to be reckoned with and the Clive Cox colt hadn’t finished with the best yet to come with a win in the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket earning him a timeform rating of 119. I will be looking forward to seeing Supremacy again this season.

Acklam Express another Mehmas offspring and bargain for Nigel Tinkler costing just 26,000 euros had a superb season winning the Listed Rose Stakes at York and placed in all three starts at Meydan this year. 

Minzaal was another who was group class winning the Group 2 Gimcrack and finishing third in the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes for Owen Burrows and looks a serious horse for this season. 

Method, Mystery Smiles, Magnanimous, Mamba Wamba, Tetragonal and Virgin Isla all placed at decent levels. I have noted a few for this season that can hopefully win a race or two, some more expensive than others and as always I will be checking the market when they run, I will also update names when available.

A couple of nice offspring worth noting are Ghost Serge who was trained by Archie Watson early on in his career and won his first two races over six furlongs. The Stalking Moon was another this time trained by John Quinn who won the fourth time of asking at Redcar back in 2016 over six furlongs.
