The daughter of Bombastic Shiraz and Winsome Bluebird has captured the imagination of greyhound followers across Australia with an amazing career to date, including nine track or sectional records and two Group-winning performances.
Trainer Paul Stuart said that his star chaser had not pulled up as well as he would have liked after her outstanding all-the-way victory in last week’s Group 2 Macro Meats Zoom Top at The Meadows.
“She’s a little bit jaded after her win in the Zoom Top last week. I flew her back to Perth after that race and we were due to arrive back in Melbourne this morning, but I just feel that another flight would knock her around too much.” “It’s really disappointing because there has been a lot of hype about her racing this week, but I have to put her welfare first.”
Miata has won 20 of her 23 starts and still holds three track records at her home track at Cannington (530, 642 and 715 metres).
