Mystic Journey is set to contest the Blamey Stakes at Flemington
Star mare Mystic Journey is set for another trip to Melbourne despite two shock loses in Tasmania to kick off her preparation.
Trainer Adam Trinder confirmed that the inaugural All Star Mile winner had pulled up well and that the Group 2 Blamey Stakes at Flemington on February 27 would be the mares next target.
Mystic Journey was beaten as the $1.10 favourite in the Ladbrokes Stakes when resuming at Launceston on 20th January and again as the $1.20 favourite in the Thomas Lyons Stakes at Hobart on Sunday (7th February).
Mystic Journey, a wildcard entry when winning the 2019 All Star Mile, currently sits 15th on the leaderboard for All Star Mile 2021 votes.
Following her two defeats in Tasmania Mystic Journey has tumbled down the market in betting for the $5m All Star Mile where she is now a $51 chance with Sportsbet.
