HE’S got a long way to go before he reaches the dizzy heights of his famed relative, but Mistery Road is heading in the right direction.
In fact, the two-year-old has had a better start to his career!
Winner of the Tatlow Stake at Tabcorp Park Menangle just moments ago, Mistery Road remains unbeaten from three starts.
The John Boserio-trained freshman is from the same family as multiple Group One star, Beautide.
“He’s very well bred and comes from the same family as Beautide, which I didn’t know at the time I picked him out of a paddock,” Boserio said.
“If he can turn out to be as quarter as good as Beautide we’ll be happy.
“At least he is on the right path as this stage.”
Driven by Anthony Robinson, Mistery Road held his ground from barrier two to gain the perfect one-one trail as Crunch Time led and Krafty Bart occupied the ‘death seat’.
Coming with a well-timed run during the latter stages, the son of Mr Feelgood grabbed the lead in the last stride to score by a head from Krafty Bart, with The Mustang a half-neck away third in 1:54.4 over a mile.
“He hit his knee at the start which didn’t help, but it’s all pretty good now,” Boserio said. “I didn’t think he was going to get there along the straight but he just kept finding.
“In the end he only just got there, but at least he got there.”
To be given a light weekend, Mistery Road will then be set for the popular Bathurst Gold Crown.
Should the colt continue to race to expectation, Boserio will then target a Sires’ Stake Series.
“He will go to Bathurst then have a spell,” Boserio said. “After that he will either go in the New South Wales Breeders’ Challenge or Qbred depending on how well he going.
“I stable him at Chris Frisby’s at can’t thank him, or Ronny Johns and Steph Burley who give me a lot of help, enough.”
