Zenyatta relation in Magic Millions sale

VISITORS to the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale in Queensland, Australia, in June could buy a close relative of unbeaten Breeders' Cup Classic winner Zenyatta.

Mountcat, a half-sister by Mountain Cat to Zenyatta's dam Vertigineux, has been catalogued as part of a dispersal from Glenmore Park Stud.

Vertigineux is also dam of triple Grade 1 winner Balance.

Mountcat raced twice in France and has produced three multiple winners. She is set to be offered in foal to Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, a son of Zenyatta's sire Street Cry.

Other mares catalogued for the sale include Cassandara Shadow, a Group 3-winning half-sister to Saturday's Australian Derby winner Shoot Out, plus Group 1 winners Cheeky Choice, Coco Cobanna, Loving New, Pharein and Victory Vein.
