Mehmas hits 54 winners; now on a par with Deep Impact
There was yet another winner for Mehmas on Thursday to bring his overall record to 54 - level with Deep Impact's total achieved in 2017. The pair lie second only to Kodiac's record of 61 set also in 2017, and ahead of Sunday Silence on 51.
Mehmas's latest winner - and his third this week - came courtesy of Yorkshire Pirlo's easy win in the 6f nursery at Southwell. Partnered by Laura Pearson, the Phillip Makin-trained colt drew clear for a deserved success, having been placed on three other occasions.
Yorkshire Pirlo was bred here at Tally-Ho Stud and becomes the sixth winner out of Suffer Her, by Whipper.
Mehmas's outstanding season includes several two-year-olds out of the top drawer, notably the Gr.1 Middle Park Stakes hero Supremacy, Gr.2 Gimcrack Stakes winner Minzaal and Listed scorers Acklam Express and Method.
The dual Group 2-winning son of Acclamation will stand for €25,000 in 2021
