CRITICAL HIT (c, 3, American Pharoah–Mythical Mission, by Giant’s Causeway) is out of a stakes-winning full-sister to MGSW/GISP and two-time Canadian champion Irish Mission who was purchased by Shimokobe Farm for $575,000 with this colt in utero at the 2021 Keeneland January Sale. Also a half-sister to GSW French Beret (Broad Brush) and to the dam of Mission of Joy (Kitten’s Joy), a dual Grade III winner and third in last year’s GI QE II Challenge Cup, Mythical Mission foaled a Justify filly in Japan in February 2022, her last listed produce.
