Mustabshir Starts At Tariqa Park
At Camden-based Tariqa Park on Sydney's southwestern fringe, Cathy Cattell's new stallion Mustabshir (Red Ransom-Startling Lass, by Luskin Star) has begun stud duties. The 1st mare served by the dual city winner was Bletchingly mare Quintet (a full sister to triple Listed winner Rigoletto). Mustabshir (1 of 6 winners, from as many to race, produced by 5-time Group winning mare Startling Miss) is a half-brother to both Queensland-based Raheen Stud's Listed winning successful stallion Shovhog & stakes-winner Shovoff; Mustabshir's dam Startling Lass is a full sister to the Champion 2YO Midnight Fever (winner of 8 races including the Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes).
