A'Ali To Stand At Newsells Park Stud

A'Ali | Newsells Park Stud

Multiple group-winning sprinter A'Ali (Ire) (Society Rock {Ire}) will begin his stud career at Newsells Park Stud in 2022, rather than Meadow Farm Stud as originally announced, after Newsells purchased a significant stake in the 4-year-old.

Trained by Simon and Ed Crisford for Shaikh Duaij Al Khalifa, A'Ali broke his maiden at second asking in the G2 Norfolk S. in 2019 and added the G2 Prix Robert Papin and G2 Flying Childers S. before season's end. He took the G3 Coral Charge S. and G2 Sapphire S. last summer before finishing fourth in the G1 Nunthorpe S., and on his only run in 2021 was third in the G2 Meydan Sprint in February.

Newsells Park Stud General Manager Julian Dollar said that the stud moved to purchase an interest in A'Ali after he and Newsells racing and nominations manager Gary Coffey saw the horse at the National Stud during the December Sales.

“When Gary and I saw A'Ali at the National Stud, we both commented on what an absolute belter of a horse he was,” Dollar said. “He really fulfils a niche for speed and precocity, which the commercial breeder is looking for. He's absolutely gorgeous to look at, with a wonderful walk and a beautiful temperament. He'll be very easy for breeders to use and should throw a lovely model, if they look anything like him. Newsells Park Stud have purchased a significant percentage of A'Ali, who was already owned by a passionate group of shareholders, including his original owner Shaikh Duaij, all keen to give him great support, so we're excited about this new partnership.

“What also works for us is that A'Ali really fills a void left by the sale of Equiano last year and helps to balance our boutique stallion roster of Nathaniel and Without Parole.  We now stand one of Europe's most proven and successful middle distance sires in Nathaniel, together with one of Frankel's fastest sons at stud in Without Parole. Together with a 'lightning fast' 2-year-old in A'Ali, they offer breeders the full spectrum of class, stamina, speed and precocity and we welcome breeders through our doors to come and see them.”
