In our experience, Rod Millman is one of the shrewdest judges and operators there is, in the racing game. He can train precocious, sharp 2yo’s, especially fillies, and he can train Ascot Gold Cup winners. He’s done exceptionally well with our sprinter Airshow since we moved him back to Rod around 18 months ago, winning 6 races and placing on numerous occasions. He’s back to his best, being Timeform rated 85.
Cuban Mistress joined us in the spring, after Rod told us that she had been coming along really well at home and are we glad we bought her!
By the exciting, Whitsbury Manor Stud’s, leading first season, Group 1 winning, sprint sire, HAVANA GREY, she’s bred for speed on her dam’s side too.
She’s 100% GREAT BRITISH BONUS registered, which means she can win a £20,000 bonus for winning pretty much any, regulation, fillies’ maiden or novice Stakes.; you can win up to 3 such Bonuses.

Racing update: Guaranteed huge residual value on her back, given she’s a 2yo listed winner and listed placed, already. Typically, those fillies/mares sell for circa £100-£200k at the end of their racing career, in preparation for the breeding paddocks. She’s “all speed” i.e. 5f is her playing at home. She will contest Group race after Group race next season, as a 3yo, in search of more black type, and she could even see her venture to Chantilly, ParisLongchamp or Deauville in search of Group race wins, to bolster her prize money haul and enhance her CV and valuation too. Will take in many of the British festivals too so she looks set fair for another really exciting season. TIMEFORM RATED: 89.
