One time Melbourne galloper Mystic Power continued his stunning rise through the racing grades in Malaysia with a win in Sunday’s Group One Selangor Gold Cup.
The latest win was the sixth in eight starts for the progressive five-year-old son of Not a Single Doubt who was purchased for $110,000 from the Arrowfield Stud draft at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
Mystic Power started his race career in Melbourne as Tennessee Wills and he earned black type for Dean Lawson when third to Underestimation in the listed St Albans Stakes at Moonee Valley.
He raced in Victoria on eight occasions and was also placed at Flemington in May 2012 late in his two-year-old season when he chased home Pillar of Creation.
After arriving in Malaysia late in 2012 Tennessee Wills was renamed Mystic Power and after an encouraging first up run he then won twice before triumphing in the RM$1 million Magic Millions Malaysian Classic in December.
Since then in four runs Mystic Power has been beaten only once and his form for the BT Lim stable has been outstanding.
The quality galloper hails from the famous Tennessee family. He is a full brother to the group performer Sweepstaking.
His third dam, the triple Group Two winner Tennessee Vain is the dam of stakes winners Tennessee Morn, Tennessee Mist and Tennessee Mist, grandam of Tennessee Midnight and Trezevant and great grandam of Group One winner Aloha.
Meanwhile, quality Singapore galloper Cash Luck added another feature race to his record when he scored a soft win in the Group Three Moonbeam Vase (1800m) on Sunday evening.
On the speed throughout, Cash Luck burst to the lead at the top of the straight and quickened beautifully to race clear for a comprehensive victory.
It was the second big race success for the strapping galloper after his brilliant win in October’s Group One Kranji Mile.
Prepared by David Kok, Cash Luck was ridden to victory in a masterful performance for former top Australian jockey John Powell.
A $12,000 Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale value buy from Royston Stud, Cash Luck has earned over S$850,000 during his 30 start and eight win career to date.
Cash Luck is by leading Queensland based sire and former Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Bradbury’s Luck – the sire of yesterday’s Gosford Guineas winner In Cahoots.
He is from the city winning Geiger Counter mare Blue Celetre – the dam of three winners, all of which are winners.
Further back his family includes Australian group winners including Marauding, Sacred Choice, Latin News, Triple Asset, Voodoo Beat and Red Metal.
