Mystic Journey will head home to Tasmania after two disappointing runs in her Melbourne campaign.
Trainer Adam Trinder made the decision on Monday after the All-Star Mile winner was beaten by 5.5 lengths in Saturday’s Group 1 Memsie Stakes.
She was beaten 4.5 lengths in the Group 2 PB Lawrence, but was given a lot of excuses on the day.
It was expected she would be better for the run and would be able to improve on Saturday but once again failed to impress.
Mystic Journey was priced at $21 in the Cox Plate market before Monday’s decision was made.
Trinder has been training his stables leading star from afar this preparation with COVID-19 restrictions not allowing him to be based in Victoria.
Mystic Journey had been based at Peter Moody’s Pakenham stables.
She will leave for Tasmania on Monday.
