Missayter has already had her fair share of injuries, but she will finally face the starter for the first time under race conditions on Wednesday.

It has been a long journey already for three-year-old Missayter, but Jacqueline Greentree will finally see her debut at Randwick-Kensington on Wednesday.

Missayter is the first foal Greentree and her husband have bred that has reached the racecourse, with the first foal, a half-sister to Missayter, unfortunately passing shortly after birth.

The daughter of Mosayter almost didn’t make it either, ending up in the intensive care unit shortly after foaling.

The Hawkesbury-based Greentree saying the filly found trouble wherever she went.

“The first foal ended up going into ICU with a massive infection,” she said.

“When it came to this filly, the exact same thing happened, but Argyle Stud saw the same progress as what the last foal had done, so they hit her with antibiotics straight away.

“They said ‘look, she’s just not doing the right thing’, so they raced her into the vets.

“It came down to a thing called dysmaturity with the mare. It’s basically they (the mare) go a full term, but have a premature baby, so they’re highly susceptible to infection.

“She ended up in ICU and we got her out of there, and once she came out of there she poked herself in the eye with a stick, so she went back into the vets.

“Then she came back out once all that had settled down and she poked herself in the knee with a stick and got a bone chip, so we had to take that out.

“She wasn’t an easy little baby, she could find any sort of trouble.”

Greentree hasn’t been training for long, with her first runner in 2015, but has been in the racing industry for the majority of her life.

The Hawkesbury-based trainer has ridden trackwork in Australia, was an apprentice jockey in New Zealand and even did a stint racing quarter horses in Canada.

She also runs an air conditioning and refrigeration business with her husband alongside her training duties.

Greentree said a win in the Astern At Darley Plate (1100m) would mean everything to her.

“It would mean the world. It’s been a long, hard, expensive road,” she said.

“She’s been a big work in progress for a long time.

“She hasn’t been easy on us, that’s for sure, but oh my god I’d be more than happy if she just acquitted herself on the day.

“We can find out where we go from there, I don’t like to jump the gun.

“There’s a lot of great trainers and I’m sure a lot of great three-year-olds.”

A win on Wednesday would be Jackie Greentree’s sixth of her training career, and her first in metropolitan company from just three starters.
