Ormiston bred the daughter of Holy Roman Emperor and retained her after she was knocked down to Frank Barry for just €4,000 at the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale.

One of nine British and Irish juvenile winners for her sire so far this season, Blue Mimosa is the first foal out of Mercury Blue,a placed daughter of Montjeu from the family of Group 3 winner Muakaad.
