Baaeed's Half-Brother Back At Newcastle

Baaeed's half-brother returns at Newcastle | Shadwell

Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Sunday's Observations features a half-brother to Shadwell's Group 1 winners Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) and Hukum (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}).

18.30 Newcastle, Novice, £16,000, 3yo/up, 8f (AWT)
WALEEFY (IRE) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}) bids to build on his encouraging debut third at Lingfield two days before Christmas with the eyes of the world watching as is inevitable when you are a half-brother to Shadwell's brilliant Baaeed (GB) and his fellow Sea The Stars-sired sibling Hukum (Ire). Like that pair under the tutelage of William Haggas, the homebred was slowly away on debut but has that experience under his belt meeting a newcomer of note in Ballylinch Stud's 250,000gns Tatts Book 1 purchase Las Ramblas (GB) (Lope De Vega {Ire}), a Roger Varian-trained half-brother to the G1 1000 Guineas heroine Legatissimo (Ire) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}).
