MIZZEN MAST FILLY AT HOME IN KEENELAND'S WINNER CIRCLE
by Ercel Ellis
On April 19th at Keeneland, Brooks House, a filly by MIZZEN MAST, won a $70,000 Maiden Special Weight by 2 1/4 lengths going a mile and a sixteenth on the turf in her first start of the year.
She had placed in back to back Maiden Specials at Keeneland in the fall and earlier at Del Mar and Churchill. Bred and owned by St. George Farm, her handy win at Keeneland shows promise for her future. She's a half-sister to the stakes winner Majestic Pride (earnings of over $221,000), and her dam, Blush On Cue, by Theatrical, has a colt by MIZZEN MAST at her side. This is the immediate female family of Kentucky Oaks winner Blush With Pride, Kentucky Oaks winner and Belmont winner Rags to Riches, Belmont winner Jazil, and a host of other accomplished individuals.
