Mehronissa pushed last years star juvenile who was coming back after a lengthy lay-off from injury, hard in the final furlong and was just a neck down at the line.

Ed Vaughn said, "She ran her heart out. She's fine this morning - she didn't leave an oat. Normally in those Group Threes you don't expect a horse like Shalaa running in it. It was just through circumstances that he happened to be running. Any other time we'd have been a winner of a Group Three over six furlongs by a length and a half. She's proved she's up to knocking about at the top level and running with great credit. She's a lovely big filly, she's got great size and plenty of scope and I spoke to the owner on Saturday and he decided he will keep her in training next year”. Mehronissa has been invited to run in the Gr.1 six and half furlongs sprint at the Breeders Cup in November which is being considered by connections.

Listed stakes success for Mehronissa as she wins the 'EBF Stallions Highfield Farm Flying Fillies’ Stakes' at Pontefract and follows up by finishing fourth in the Gr.1 Haydock Sprint

After showing she was on the upgrade by landing Pontefract’s most valuable race of the season, Mehronissa was supplemented for the Gr.1 Haydock Sprint and took her form to a new level, when finishing fourth.

Vaughan said: "We were over the moon. It justified supplementing her which was paid for by finishing fourth. The owner was delighted. "I believed that kind of race would suit her as although her time was quick enough at Pontefract it was very stop-start going around the bend. In these straight Group One sprints they go hard from the gates, which is what she needs. "We were getting very excited for a while as she was one of the last off the bridle”.
