Three Of The First Mehmas Crop To Lookout For

Mehmas starts life as a sire

Mehmas, who will need little introduction to many of you, starts out his first campaign as a sire this summer and we have put together three of his crop that could pay their way throughout the season.

This high-class 2yo won the July & Richmond Stakes, was runner-up in the Coventry & National Stakes and then retired without finishing outside of the top 3 in eight career starts.

He was a speedy individual who was very forward early in his career so it would be no surprise to see his offspring landing the initial season sprints.

Aussie Stormer (Mehmas x Stormy Clouds) - Trained by Richard Hughes

Richard Hughes has had some decent sprinters already and Aussie Stormer is bred to be a very sharp 2yo.

His dam is Stormy Clouds who landed a £147,540 prize in the Goffs Premier Yearling Stakes as well as finishing second in the Weatherbys Super Sprint.

Just like Mehmas, she only campaigned as a 2yo so you would imagine connections have similar plans for their progeny.

Bright Armor (Mehmas x Jamaayel) - Trained by Clive Cox

Clive Cox is renowned for his superstar sprinters and Bright Armor has an eye-catching sprint pedigree.

He is by Mehmas, out of Shamardal filly Jamaayel, who has recently produced the 1000 Guineas entry Raeeq.

Everything points to an exciting 2-y-o and he is entered in the Super Sprint Stakes.

Good Listener (Mehmas x Looks Great) - Trained by Richard Hannon

Having trained Mehmas to a successful career it would be a surprise if Richard Hannon didn’t have a couple of nice prospects and this colt looks interesting.

Unlike many of his first crop, this son of Mehmas has a mix of speed and stamina with his Dam, a daughter of New Approach, providing plenty of the latter.

He holds some 5f-7f entries so it will be intriguing to see where they start out.
