Pale Mimosa coming to Australia

High profile Irish mare Pale Mimosa is on her way to Australia after being purchased by Mulcaster Bloodstock.

Formerly prepared by training genius and dual Melbourne Cup winner Dermot Weld, Pale Mimosa was sold for 680,000 guineas to an undisclosed buyer.

Racing Victoria had been hopeful that Pale Mimosa would travel to Melbourne for the spring carnival and despite entering quarantine, Weld and her previous owners decided against taking aim at the Melbourne Cup.

“She’s a lovely mare, she did everything right for us and she’s dual purpose,” Mulcaster said.

“We’ll let her get over the winter and see what we do with her after that. She’s a very good racehorse and she’s a very good type.”

Pale Mimosa has won five of her 12 career starts, including a Group 2 win over Estimate in the Lonsdale Cup at York in August.

Mulcaster Bloodstock also purchased two mares for Raffles Farm at the Tattersalls December Mares Sale with Kitty Wells fetching 170,000 guineas and Lively Sprite 130,000 guineas.
