G1SW Mohaather to Stand at Nunnery Stud


Mohaather | Shadwell

Group 1 winner Mohaather (GB) (Showcasing {GB}-Roodeye {GB}, by Inchinor {GB}) will stand at Nunnery Stud in 2021, Shadwell announced on Monday. The 2020 G1 Sussex S. hero was retired earlier this year after sustaining bone bruising in his near hind fetlock joint. A fee for the bay will be announced later.

Richard Lancaster, Shadwell Stud Director, said, “The entire team at Shadwell are delighted to be standing Mohaather at  Nunnery. He put up arguably the best performance of any miler this year when defeating a top-class field in the Sussex S., backing up what was an ultra-impressive performance in the Summer Mile at Ascot. His explosive turn of foot will live long in the memory.”

Bred by Gaie Johnson Houghton, Mohaather was knocked down for 110,000gns to Shadwell at the 2017 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 2. As a juvenile he won two of three starts, culminating in a score in the G3 Horris Hill S. at Newbury. Returning at three, the Marcus Tregoning trainee added another Newbury Group 3, this time the Greenham S. from two starts. In three 2020 appearances the 4-year-old delivered in his final two, taking the July 11 G2 Summer Mile S. and the G1 Sussex S. at Goodwood at the end of the month. The highest-rated son of Showcasing at 123, Mohaather retired in August with a mark of 8-5-1-0 and $371,699 in earnings.

Added Lancaster, “It's important to remember Mohaather was also a group winner at two and three and he has the physical prowess to match his racecourse exploits. He is particularly attractive–a beautiful dark bay–and is an extraordinarily well-balanced individual with a superb walk. You can see how he generated that speed: he has a great hindquarter and second thigh.”

Mohaather, out of the SP Roodeye, is a full-brother to American MGSW & GISP Prize Exhibit (GB) (Showcasing {GB}), and a half to the SP Harbour Master (GB) (Harbour Watch {Ire}) and the dam of G1 Queen Anne S. hero Accidental Agent (GB) (Delegator {GB}). Roodeye in turn is a half-sister to the G1 Prix Morny runner-up Gallagher (GB) (Bahamian Bounty {GB}), while under the third dam is the G2 Gimcrack S. victor Bannister (GB) (Inchinor {GB}). Dead Certain (GB) (Absalom {GB}), a European highweight from five to seven furlongs and the winner of the G1 Cheveley Park S., is also a member of the female family tracing to the winning Sirnelta (Fr) (Sir Tor).
