13th June 2020 Plenty of interest in Mystery Shot

A tilt at the $5 million All Star Mile (1600m) could be enough for connections of unbeaten Mystery Shot (Shooting To Win) to fend off multi-million dollar offers from Hong Kong. Managing owner Brad Spicer confirmed that several bloodstock agents had made enquiries about purchasing the three-year-old after his latest win at Caulfield on Saturday. “There were quite a few phone calls last night and I gather my phone will run hot this morning with agents trying to secure him for up there,” Spicer told RSN’s Correct Weight. “He’s got a bright future but in terms of how high he can get to, his next couple of starts might be able to tell us that. Is he going to be a horse for the spring and maybe go on to be an All Star Mile horse next year? That’s what we’re thinking at the moment so I think it will take a fairly big offer to wrest the horse away from the owners.”
