Mystery Miss clear winner of Listed Belmont Oaks

Daughter of Animal Kingdom adds third Stakes victory to her already impressive resume

Mystery Miss made it perfectly clear that she is one of the top three-year-old fillies in Western Australia when she charged to a two-and-a-half length victory in the Listed Belmont Oaks 6 July.

Settled near the rear of the eight-horse field, the three-year-old daughter of Animal Kingdom tracked Ping Me Another through the early stages of the ten-furlong Classic. With just under a half-mile remaining, Mystery Miss hit another gear and swept past the longtime leader and took command. Mystery Miss continued to pull away and was never threatened, eventually winning by two-and-a-half lengths.

The Oaks was the third Stakes win for Mystery Miss, who now has won five of eight starts. In addition to the Oaks, Mystery Miss sports a win in both the Listed Belmont Guineas and Listed Belgravia Stakes. She improved her overall record to five wins in eight starts.

Mystery Miss was bred in Australia by her owners, Peters Investments Pty Ltd. She is out of Mystical Miss, a winning daughter of More Than Ready. Mystical Miss, in turn, is out of Magical Miss, winner of both the G1 Australia Thousand Guineas and G1 Crown Oaks.

Animal Kingdom is the sire of ten Black Type winners including G1 Australian Derby winner Angel of Truth, G2 winner Untamed Domain, and G3 winner Elsa.
