1st Foal Born By Shamardal

Tuesday, 18th July 2006

Meanwhile the 1st foal by 4YO Darley shuttler & 4-time Gr1-winner Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) was born (3 weeks early) over the weekend: a colt & 3rd foal from Precious Days (the 1st mare Shamardal covered). Precious Days is by top US sire Deputy Minister from Pricket (a stakes-winning sister to champion UK filly & triple Oaks winner Diminuendo). Shamardal retired last year unbeaten in 6 starts on the turf: after being named UK Champion 2YO in 2004 (with victories including the Gr1 Dewhurst Stakes) he added the 2005 Gr1 Poule d'Essai des Poulains (French 2000 Guineas), Gr1 Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) & UK Gr1 St. James's Palace Stakes. Shamardal (a close relation to Darley's Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry) covered a full book in his 1st Australian season including champion Magical Miss, Show Dancing (dam of Al Maher) & Whisked (dam of Tie The Knot). He will stand again this season at $55,000.
