G1SW Siyarafina (Fr) (Pivotal {GB}-Siyenica {Fr}, by Azamour {Ire}) has been retired to the paddocks, trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre told Jour de Galop on Sunday. A homebred for His Highness The Aga Khan, the bay earned ‘TDN Rising Star’ status on debut at Saint-Cloud in April and made it two on the bounce in a ParisLongchamp conditions test on Apr. 22. The daughter of French SW & MGSP Siyenica had a length to spare over her rivals when saluting in the May 26 G1 Prix Saint Alary as the short-priced chalk. She most recently finished sixth while favoured in the June 16 G1 Prix de Diane and retires with a mark of 4-3-0-0 and $193,824 in earnings.

“Siyarafina will enter stud,” trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre told Jour de Galop. “There are several small [physical] issues. She is a filly who has great breeding value. She is a Group 1 winner and we prefer not to take [any further] risks.”

Siyarafina’s second dam, the SW & MGSP Sichilla (Ire), (Danehill) is a half-sister to English/Italian highweight and MG1SW Slickly (Fr) (Linamix {Fr}). Besides Siyenica, she also produced English/French highweight and MG1SW Siyouma (Ire) (Medicean {GB}), as well as G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere victor Siyouni (Fr) (Pivotal {GB}), who stood for €100,000 this season at The Aga Khan’s Haras de Bonneval.
