Maystar all set in Doha
19th February 2020
With Maystar all set in Doha, his connections can look forward to an exciting Saturday as their ultra-game youngster takes his place in the Group 2 Al Biddah Mile this weekend.
A return to Qatar has been on the cards for this striking son of Mayson since he scored in convincing fashion on foreign turf in December. An excellent victory in the Al Rayaan Stakes under regular partner Hollie Doyle earned him a crack at Saturday’s big race and all roads have led back to Doha since then.
Under the care of the record-breaking Archie Watson team, Maystar has been expertly prepared for this valuable invitational race which offers a prize pot of a quarter of a million US Dollars no less.
This three-year-old has proved to be a consistent performer so far winning four starts, placing second on two occasions and earning his lucky connections in excess of £100,000 in the process.
Already qualified for the prestigious All-Weather Championship at Lingfield on Good Friday, this lad is sure to provide yet more enjoyment for his syndicate.
A shrewd purchase by Archie in May last year at the Tattersall’s breeze-up sales, he was taken by Maystar’s relentless gallop and he has since more than exceeded expectations regardless of Saturday’s result.
Archie already boasts a formidable record with his breeze-up purchases which many would struggle to match.
It will come as no surprise that we will be looking to purchase another breeze-up recruit this year with a young trainer who is clearly going places.
Win, lose or draw Maystar should provide those connections able to travel over to Doha with a fantastic experience and hopefully his return to the scene of his latest triumph will prove memorable for them.
