A Filly First for Baaeed

The filly is the first foal for both her sire Baaeed and dam Mejthaam

The first reported foal for Baaeed (GB), the top-rated turf horse in the world in 2022, has been born at Haras de la Perelle in Normandy. 

The filly is out of the Shadwell-bred Exceed And Excel (Aus) mare Mejthaam (Ire), a dual winner and half-sister to Group 2 winner Alflaila (GB), who was bought in December for 260,000gns. 

“We are delighted with her. She is a strong, good-sized foal, full of energy and has a great temperament. She is doing everything right. It is very exciting to have had the first foal of the brilliant champion Baaeed,” said William Rimaud, manager of Haras de la Perelle.

Among the other mares set to produce a foal from the first crop of Baaeed this year are the Group 1 winners Deirdre (Jpn), Eshaada (GB), Nazeef (Ire), Persuasive (GB), Queen's Trust (GB), Seal Of Approval (GB), Search For A Song (Ire), Star Of Seville (GB), The Fugue (GB) and Wavering (Ire), as well as the dams of Group 1 winners Accidental Agent (GB), Best Of Days (Ire), Native Trail (GB), Persian King (Ire), Siyarafina (Fr) and Ten Sovereigns (Ire). 

Breeders in Newmarket this week for the Tattersalls February Sale can view Baaeed and his fellow Shadwell stallions Mostahdaf (Ire) and Mohaather (GB) at Beech House Stud on Thursday and Friday between 12pm and 3.30pm.
