INAUGURAL Million Dollar Chase winner Mystic Riot knows when to save her best.

The daughter of Barcia Bale and Ready To Riot, winner of the 2018 Million Dollar Chase, has just whelped he first litter of eagerly awaited pups.

On Tuesday, she whelped four dogs and two bitches to star US stud dog Superior Panama.

The bitch, trained by both Anthony Azzopardi and Peter Lagogiane, raced 36 times for 12 wins and six placings, earning Colin and Sandra Bermingham $1.056 million.

She was also a finalist in the Brisbane Cup, Richmond Oaks, Black Top and The Ambrosoli.

“They are just one day old and all feeding well,” said Col. 

“At this stage we have made no firm decisions about them but there is a chance a couple of dogs will be for sale down the track.”

Mystic Riot is from a fabulous litter which also included G1 National Futurity winner Blue Sky Riot (11 wins, $157,000), and she is a half sister to Group 1 stars Whiskey Riot (22 wins, $812,000) and Fernando’s Riot (18 wins, $404,000).

The mating to Superior Panama brings in two highly proven crosses, that of Superior Panama’s sire KC And All with Barcia Bale’s sister to create Orson Allen, and also the proven cross of the Kinloch Brae damline with Barcia Bale which produced group staying star Dublin Bull among others.
