The glamour mare will begin a career at stud in 2013 in Japan where she will be served by top Japanese stallion Deep Impact.

Part-owner Katsumi Yoshida operates the Shadai Stallion Station where Mosheen will be sent and trainer Robert Smerdon said yesterday the fractured tibia, which is in her near-side hing leg, will have no impact on her stud career.

The daughter of Fastnet Rock had an outstanding career, winning eight of 18 starts and collecting more than $2.7 million in prizemoney.

As a two-year-old she finished second to Sepoy in the Golden Slipper before excelling as a three-year-old in a season that saw her win four times at Group 1 level.

Mosheen won the Crown Oaks by nine lengths last spring before a stunning autumn campaign where she won the Australian Guineas, Randwick Guineas and Vinery Stud Stakes.

She was to be set on a Cox Plate path this spring before a throat problem that required surgery but she still managed to score victory in the Group 2 Blazer Stakes earlier this month.
