Mujahid | Allevamento di Bisnate

Italian champion sire Mujahid (Danzig-Elrafa Ah, by Storm Cat) has been pensioned at Allevamento di Besnate, the Racing Post reported on Monday. The rising 23-year-old, bred and owned by Shadwell, will claim his fourth consecutive champion sire title by progeny earnings in his adopted land at year’s end. Originally at Beech House Stud in Great Britain, Mujahid moved to Allevamento di Besnate for the 2008 covering season. A winner of the 1998 G1 Dewhurst S. and third in the 1999 G1 2000 Guineas a year later for John Dunlop, Mujahid has sired 29 black-type winners, 11 of them at the group level, with Australian MG1SW Danleigh (Aus) and Italian Group 1 winner Cleo Fan (Ity) leading the way. As a broodmare sire, Mujahid is responsible for G1 English/Irish 1000 Guineas bridesmaid Lightning Thunder (GB) (Dutch Art {GB}), MGSW & MG1SP Tasaday (Nayef) and SW & G1SP Bailey’s Jubilee (GB) (Bahamian Bounty {GB}).
