MGSW and Classic Placed Shaman to Yeomanstown Stud

MGSW and Classic-placed Shaman (Ire) (Shamardal-Only Green {Ire} by Green Desert) will stand at Yeomanstown Stud in 2021. The Wertheimer et Frere homebred's fee will be announced at a later date.

“He is a great looking son of the mighty Shamardal from one of the best pedigree's around, add to that his impressive race record Shaman is a huge addition to us and should prove popular to breeders from both Ireland and abroad,” said Yeomanstown's David O'Callaghan. “We are delighted to have Wertheimer Et Frère retain a share in Shaman and look forward to their support.”

Trained by Carlos Laffon-Parias, the debut winner was third in the G3 Prix des Chenes as a juvenile, before winning the Listed Prix Omnium II in his first start at three. Successful in the G3 Prix la Force, the chestnut ran second in the G1 Poule d'Essai des Poulains. Later that term he was also second in the G1 Prix Jacques le Marois and ended his sophomore year with a third in the G2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein. At four the son of French MSW & GSP Only Green added the G2 Prix d'Harcourt to his win column and was also third in the G1 Prix Ganay. His record stands at 16-5-3-3 and $687,788 in earnings.

Shaman is a half-brother to French SW Green Sweet (Smart Strike), as well as the dam of Group 3 placed My Kurkum (GB) (Dariyan {Fr}). His dam is a half-sister to European highweight and MG1SW Occupandiste (Ire) (Kaldoun {Fr}), herself responsible for MGISW Mondialiste (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), GSW & MG1SP Impressionnante (GB) (Danehill) and the latter's G1 Prix du Jockey Club-winning son and young sire Intello (Ger) (Galileo {Ire}). This is the extended family of Irish highweight and Classic winner Mehthaaf (Nureyev), as well as European highweights and Group 1 winners Ribchester (Ire) (Iffraaj {GB}) and G1 July Cup hero Elnadim (Danzig). Shaman's fourth dam is the high class blue hen Fall Aspen (Pretense).
