Mid Summer Music Overview

— Overview Heading —

An 11 time winner of over $1.3 million, Mid Summer Music did not make her first appearance on the track until her 4yr old season and it wasn’t until her 13th start that she tasted Stakes victory in the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes at Caulfield. Two weeks later the Peter Moody trained mare won again at G3 level defeating Parables in the Cockram Stakes. This was then followed by a number of stakes placings behind racing superstars, including 2nd in the G2 Let’s Elope Stakes, beaten by the Cox Plate winning Pinker Pinker, a 3rd in the G2 Caulfield Sprint, 1.5 L behind Sepoy, 3rd behind the unbeaten Black Caviar and Buffering in the G1 Patinack Classic and 2nd behind the yet unbeaten Atlantic Jewel in the G2 Sapphire Stakes.

These placings at the top level were an indication of her toughness and talent, but she finally received her just rewards when beating Buffering and Happy Zero in the G1 Stradbroke Handicap, becoming the first mare to do so since 1936.

Mid Summer Music was the last of just 6 foals for her dam Samsara Lady who died during foaling at the age of 17. Mid Summer Music was then subsequently left to be hand raised, bringing about its own behavioral issues and it was reported that she was quite challenging to ‘break in’.
