Freshman Sire Postponed | Amy Lanigan

By

Darley's Postponed (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) became the latest European freshman sire off the mark when the Karl Burke-trained 9-4 favourite Almohandesah (GB) graduated in Sunday's EBF Fillies' Restricted Novice going six furlongs at Pontefract. The 18,000gns Tattersalls December foal and 16,500gns Tattersalls February yearling prevailed by a head from Shouldavbeenmore (Fr) (Penny's Picnic {Ire}).

1st-Pontefract, £6,000, Nov, 6-20, 2yo, f, 6fT, 1:17.13, g/f.
ALMOHANDESAH (GB) (f, 2, Postponed {Ire}–Chocolate Hills {Fr}, by Exceed and Excel {Aus}), a June 1 debut runner-up over this distance at Redcar in her only prior start, tracked the pace in a share of fourth through the early fractions of this one. Rowed along rounding the home turn, the 9-4 favourite came under pressure to challenge in early straight and was ridden out inside the final furlong to prevail by a head from Shouldavbeenmore (Fr) (Penny's Picnic {Ire}), becoming the first winner for her freshman sire (by Dubawi {Ire}). Almohandesah, half-sister to a yearling colt by Pivotal (GB), is the sixth of seven foals and the fourth scorer produced by a winning half-sister to Listed Prix Georges Trabaud placegetter Honour System (Ire) (King's Best). The March-foaled bay's second dam Rawabi (GB) (Sadler's Wells) is an unraced full-sister to G1 Dewhurst S. hero In Command (Ire) and a half to MG1SW sire Royal Applause (GB) (waajib {Ire}) and G1 Nunthorpe S.-winning European champion heroine Lyric Fantasy (Ire) (Tate Gallery). Sales history: 18,000gns RNA Wlg '19 TATFOA; 16,500gns Ylg '20 TATFEB. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $6,562.
