Progeny do Cailin Miss proud on both sides of the country
Cailin Miss is fast becoming one of Makybe’s leading broodmares through the efforts of the Group winning mare La Mexicana. And La Mexicana was again amongst the black type earners on Saturday when running third at Caulfield in the Group 3 Neds How Now Stakes over 1200m when being partnered by Damien Lane. Caught four-wide for pretty much the entire race, the daughter of I Am Invincible showed good determination and was unlucky not to pick up second place.
The farm was also very excited to see her 3YO half-brother Far Too Strong (by All Too Hard) return with a win in Western Australia over 1600m. That makes it two metro wins from four starts and we would love to think that there’s is more to come. Having won as a 2YO at Ascot, he was given one more outing before being put away and allowed to develop. Lindsey Smith still believes he has more maturing to do but is optimistic that we may see him hit some loftier heights in the not too distant future. Lindsey managed to purchase Far Too Strong out of the paddock as a yearling and is now looking to be a very shrewd investment on behalf of the current owners Greenfields Lodge.\
Makybe have retained the Russian Revolution 2YO filly out of the mare and the mare has produced a Headwater filly having been given 2020 breeding season off. The mare will hopefully return to I Am Invincible in 2021.
