Fastnet filly Mosheen beats the boys in Guineas

FASTNET ROCK's daughter Mosheen became only the fourth filly in 27 years to upstage the colts and win the Group 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington on Saturday.

Mosheen, also the winner of the Crown Victoria Oaks and the subject of a part-purchase by Japanese owner Katsumi Yoshida this year, overcame a wide draw to win by three lengths from the Savabeel gelding Strike The Stars.

Mosheen is one of eight Group 1 winners sired by Fastnet Rock, a son of Danehill who shuttles between Coolmore's Irish and Australian bases and currently covering in County Tipperary for a private fee.

Fastnet Rock also sired the 2010 Australian Guineas winner Rock Classic, the Caulfield 1,000 Guineas winners Atlantic Jewel and Irish Lights, as well as New Zealand 1,000 Guineas scorer Planet Rock, who won the Group 3 Lowland Stakes at Hastings on Saturday.

Mosheen was bred by Bylong Park Thoroughbreds out of the winning Stravinsky mare Sumehra, a half-sister to Hong Kong Mile winner Lucky Owners and Listed scorer Miss Power Bird, from the further family of Melbourne Cup hero Might And Power.

Bylong are set to offer a Zabeel half-brother to Mosheen at next month's prestigious Inglis Easter yearling sale.
