Shadwell seven for fertile Mustajeeb

New stallion Mustajeeb, who has had his first mare confirmed in foal, is receiving fulsome support from his owner-breeder Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum. The record-breaking Jersey Stakes winner is being sent seven high-class Shadwell Stud mares in his first season. 

They include:
- young Dubawi mare Jufoon, a €200,000 yearling who was runner-up at Listed level in France and is carrying her first foal by Iffraaj;
- Oaks winner Midway Lady's useful daughter Ghaidaa, who was twice placed in Listed mile races, and has already bred three useful winners from her first three foals. She has a Dubawi yearling colt. Ghaidaa is also a half-sister to Oaks winner Eswarah;
- the 96-rated four-time winner Felwah, owned by Khalil Al Sayegh and carrying her first foal by Mukhadram. She is from the fast Shadwell family of G2 Queen Mary winner Nadwah;
- 84-rated New Approach winner Deglet Noor, whose dam – a Storm Cat half-sister to G1 winner Summer Colony – was bought for $2.3m. She is in foal to Exceed And Excel.
Plus, two maiden mares: Mahsooba by Hard Spun, a winner at Newmarket as a juvenile whose grandam, Muhbubh, won the G3 Princess Margaret for Sheikh Hamdan; and Kafaala, a young daughter of Shamardal and Cheshire Oaks winner Hammiya. Classic Falcon, a dual-winner by Dubawi bought for 180,000gns as a yearling who has a yearling filly by Dark Angel and is in foal to Slade Power, also visits Mustajeeb in 2016.
Richard Lancaster, Stud Director of Shadwell, said, 'Mustajeeb was a very talented horse, with an outstanding pedigree. He's also notably good-looking. We are in the fortunate position of having the Champion sprinter in Muhaarar standing at The Nunnery in 2016, but Sheikh Hamdan is pleased to retain ownership of Mustajeeb.'
Others supporting Mustajeeb in his first season include his trainer, Dermot Weld, who described Mustajeeb as 'a racehorse of the highest class.'  Mustajeeb was officially rated the best 6-7f horse of the past two seasons after only Muhaarar and Slade Power.
Meanwhile, Mustajeeb's first mare has been scanned in foal: she is Transvaal Sky, an 89-rated winning juvenile out of a half-sister to G1 Prix Morny hero Bad As I Wanna Be. Simon Sweeting, of Overbury Stud, said, 'Mustajeeb has taken to his new role really well, and he's impressing visitors with his strength and lovely movement.' Mustajeeb, who is from the family of Galileo, stands at £5,000 Oct 1, SLF, with 'Happy Breeder' nominations available at £10,000.
