Third Time The Charm For Smart Vadamos Filly

Mistrix (2f Vadamos - Plus Ca Change, by Invincible Spirit) gained deserved compensation for two narrow defeats when beating a competitive field at York on Sunday.

Two previous winners were among those who lined up for the seven furlong contest, which had been won by the likes of Elarqam in the past. Held up behind the leaders by Daniel Muscutte, Mistrix was pushed along to challenge approaching the final furlong and soon led. Running on well when asked, the George Scott-trained filly beat a previous winner by half a length, with another four and a quarter lengths back to the third horse.

Owned by Candour House and partner, Mistrix was bred by Airlie Stud and Mrs Sonia Rogers
