Mise En Scene Keeneland Race Review
Mise En Scene ran a great race to finish 6th in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf on Saturday at Keeneland.
She travelled extremely well throughout the race but just didn’t have that finishing kick in the final two furlongs. She was beaten six lengths in total, just a nose off fifth.
Mise En Scene will now stay in America and continue racing there throughout the winter due to the European flat season ending. She is very lightly raced and will have more runs coming up. She will enjoy a short break at Hunter Valley Farm before joining Brendan Walsh.
Mise En Scene's jockey, Cieren Fallon said;
”Very happy, she ran a brilliant race, she was nice and relaxed there, she jumped really well and got into a nice position. It was a strong gallop throughout sitting comfortably. She travelled much better than she does back home, turning for home she actually picked up but for the last furlong and a half she didn't have the gears to go with them but overall a super run."
Mise En Scene's trainer, James Ferguson said;
"A really pleasing run from Mise En Scene, she broke well and I think Cieren gave her a lovely ride. She got into a lovely position and she seemed to travel nicely, she got round the bends well enough, I think she put you a brilliant performance.
She didn't quite have the gears to quicken as quickly as the winner. The winner is a seriously good filly and we've only been beaten a couple of lengths behind Nashwa who is a two times Group One winner.
I think over a mile and half around two bends she will be top class and although I'm sad to see her leave my yard, I'm looking forward to seeing her career progress. She's been a superstar for us and I know we've had to be patient this year but it's now paying off.
To summarise, delighted with the run and that's the sort of run I always thought she was capable of. To run like that in a Breeders' Cup is an incredible performance. Thank you all for your support this year.
