Half-Sister To Masar Graduates At Newmarket


Dubawi, sire of Masar's half-sister Sayyida


Godolphin homebred Sayyida (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), a half-sister to G1 Epsom Derby hero Masar (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}), shed her maiden tag with a 2 1/2-length success in her seasonal return at Newmarket on Saturday.

6th-Newmarket, £8,050, Nov, 5-15, 3yo, f, 12fT, 2:36.84, gd.
SAYYIDA (GB) (f, 3, Dubawi {Ire}–Khawlah {Ire} {Hwt. 3yo-UAE at 7-9.5f, MGSW-UAE & GSP-Eng, $1,366,175}, by Cape Cross {Ire}), who bettered a debut fifth at this venue with a Sept. 30 last-out second over an extended mile at Nottingham, tracked the leaders in fourth for most of this sophomore bow. Rowed along to close approaching the three-furlong marker, the 4-1 chance seized control with 1 1/2 furlongs remaining and kept on strongly under continued rousting thereafter to outpoint Mellow Magic (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) by 2 1/2 lengths. Sayyida becomes the second scorer from as many runners for G2 UAE Derby and G3 UAE Oaks heroine Khawlah (Ire) (Cape Cross {Ire}) and is thus a half-sister to G1 Epsom Derby-winning sire Masar (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}). She is also kin to a 2-year-old colt by New Approach (Ire), a yearling filly by the same sire and a colt foal by Too Darn Hot (GB). Khawlah is a half-sister to G2 Prix Guillaume d'Ornano victor and G1 Jebel Hatta runner-up Vancouverite (GB) (Dansili {GB}) while the next dam is stakes-winning G1 Epsom Oaks and G1 Irish Oaks placegetter Melikah (Ire) (Lammtarra) herself a daughter of storied matriarch Urban Sea (Miswaki). Lifetime Record: 3-1-1-0, $8,109.
