Tough QUATTROELLE offered to her sire MEHMAS a new Group victory to start February when displaying an impressive turn-of-foot to land the G3 Megahertz Stakes at Santa Anita, USA on February, 4. Hailing from MEHMAS’ first crop, the five-year-old dual Stakes winner filly was bred by Rossenarra Stud. Tally-Ho Stud-based impressive stallion also celebrated a triple of scorers on February, 3 with Tally-Ho Stud-bred MULGRAVE and MP partnership and Phillistown House-bred MEHMAN both claiming a third career-victory a Dundalk, Ireland. Third hero of the day was Austin Lyons-bred SECRET STRENGTH who crossed the finish line first at Lingfield, UK.
