Dubawi Legend “An Exciting Addition” To The Compas Stallion Roster

Dubawi Legend: to stand at Starfield Stud | Racingfotos.com

Micheál Orlandi has spoken of his excitement at being able to offer an accessible son of Dubawi (Ire) to breeders after announcing Dubawi Legend (Ire) will join the roster at Compas Stallions' Starfield Stud for the upcoming breeding season.

A classy sprinter for Hugo Palmer, Dubawi Legend chased home Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) in the G1 Dewhurst S. at Newmarket before signing off on his juvenile campaign with a rating of 115.

He achieved Group 3 success as a 3-year-old and put in another notable performance to finish third to subsequent Group 1-winning sprinter Minzaal (Ire) (Mehmas {Ire}) in the G3 Hackwood S. that same season.

Dubawi Legend's fee has been set at €6,500 for his debut season at the County Westmeath stud where he will stand alongside fellow newbie King Of Change (GB), Far Above (Ire), Kuroshio (Aus) and Smooth Daddy.

Orlandi said, “At a fee of €6,500, we are delighted to offer breeders the opportunity to use a precocious son of the champion sire Dubawi. Not only is Dubawi the champion sire but he is also a renowned sire of sires, and can call upon Night of Thunder (Ire), New Bay (GB)  and Zarak (Fr) to name a few.”

He added, “We haven't yet reached the crest of Dubawi's wave as a sire of sires so to stand his Group 1-performing son is very exciting. Dubawi Legend is the second-highest rated 2-year-old to retire to stud in 2023.

“A top class sprinter, he is an exciting addition to the Compas Stallions roster. Limited breeding rights are available.”

Dubawi Legend finished up in 2021 as the joint second-highest rated 2-year-old in Europe, with that 115 rating higher than what Night Of Thunder, New Bay and Zarak achieved at two. Dubawi's dominance as a sire of sires is illustrated by the fact that five of his sons have sired Group 1 winners in their own right in Europe.

Director of Racing at Rabbah, Bruce Raymond revealed how he holds Dubawi Legend in the highest of regard, and commented, “A speedy, well-bred son of Dubawi. He was an impressive debut winner and Group 1-placed at two and was even quicker at three when easily winning a Group 3 over six furlongs. We saw him as a Group 1-level sprinter.”

Out of a Raven's Pass mare, the Listed UAE 1000 Guineas winner Lovely Pass (Ire), Dubawi Legend is bred on the same successful cross as Mishriff (Ire) and Saffron Beach (Ire).
