Bright Future for Pride of Dubai’s Mystique Falcon

Trained by Ciaron Maher and David Eustace, Mystique Falcon was unplaced on debut at Sale last month after making a mess of the start, but atoned with a tenacious victory in the 1300m fillies maiden.

Headed in the last furlong by runner-up Derive, she dug deep for Jye McNeil to score a determined win.

“The stable have a high opinion of her so it’s good to get that win in the board for her owner Laurence Eales and his partners,” said Ciaron Maher. “She’s a raw commodity and should stay a trip. She’s got a bright future.” A $220,000 Karaka Book 1 purchase for Ciaron Maher Racing / Eales Racing from the Inglewood Stud draft, Mystique Falcon is bred along stout lines through her female pedigree so may well get over ground as her career unfolds.

She is a half-sister to stakes-winner Replique and is the fifth winner from five to race from stakes-placed Montjeu (IRE) mare Mystique, a half-sister to Group II New Zealand Cup (3200m) winner Torlesse from Group I winner Seamist , the 1990 NZ Filly of the Year. Mystique Falcon is the 10th first crop winner for Pride of Dubai, who is the leading Australian first season sire by earnings.
