Somewhere in RUSSIA !!! but unable to find any further web information.
He has been sold by Godolphin but who to ??????????
Finally, A win that legitimizes the talent that this colt possesses. Mastery, with Frankie Dettori aboard, dominated an all-star field at Sha Tin on Sunday. Winning the G1 Hong Kong Vase. Mastery has never run a bad race in his career. He's never been worse than 5th in 13 lifetime starts. That was in the 2010 Dubai World Cup. Where he was just nosed out by Gio Ponti for 4th. His only other out of money finish in his career was as a 2yr.old in 2008. When he finished 4th in the Kentucky Derby Challenge Stakes at Kemton. Mastery won the Italian Derby and St Leger in 2009. With place or show finishes in the Great Voltigeur, the Grand Prix De Paris, the Queen's Vase, and the Breeders Cup Marathon. For sometime now, Mastery has raced in the shadow of other top G1 middle distance horses owned by Godolphin. Cavalryman, Cutlass Bay, Campanologist, and Kite Wood. But on Sunday, Mastery definitely stepped out of the shadow of his stable-mates. And stepped himself a player on the world stage with a dominating performance in Hong Kong. I really hope Godolphin go the Sheema Classic route with Mastery this year in Dubai instead of the World Cup. Mastery has the ability to run synthetics as well as turf. But he's a much better horse at 12+ furlongs than he is in 9 to 10+ furlong races. I think he could be a big player in this year's Sheema Classic. And even if Godolphin chooses to send him back to the Dubai World Cup again? I wouldn't write him off in that race either. JMO.
Even though he finished 3rd in the Breeders Cup Marathon, I still feel that Mastery was really the class of that field with the most proven record. I really feel that Godophin Racing, given Mastery's talent, would have been better served to have entered him in the 1-1/2 Breeders Cup Turf. Conduit would have been difficult for Mastery to have beaten, but I do think he's every bit as talented as Dar Re Mi and Spanish Moon, the other Euro runners in the Turf. Especially given the difference of the potential payoff between the B.C. Turf vs. the B.C. Marathon. I don't understand why the Marathon is the only race in all fourteen of the Breeders Cup races that still run's for a purse less than one million dollars.
