Raabihah Joins Shadwell Broodmare Band

Raabihah | Scoop Dyga

Raabihah (Sea The Stars {Ire}), a group winner at three and four for trainer Jean-Claude Rouget in the Shadwell blue, is among the fillies to join the Shadwell broodmare band this year; the 5-year-old will be bred to Dubawi (Ire). The winner of three of her first four starts in 2020, including the G3 Prix de Psyche and the Listed Prix de la Seine, Raabihah was second to Tarnawa (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}) in the G1 Prix Vermeille before finishing fifth behind Sottsass (Fr) in the G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. Raabihah returned last year to add the G2 Prix de Pomone and was retired after finishing 12th in the latest renewal of the Arc.

Another of Shadwell's daughters of Sea The Stars, the G1 Oaks and G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. winner Taghrooda (GB), produced a Kingman (GB) filly last year and is due to foal this season to Lope De Vega (Ire) on a late cover, after which she will be rested. It was announced last week that Taghrooda's second foal, the twice-winning Almighwar (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), would take up stud duties at Garryrichard Stud.

Shadwell sends its five-length G1 Prix Saint Alary winner Tawkeel (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}) to Sea The Stars this year after she foals a Dubawi.

Among the Shadwell mares expecting Kingman babies this season are the five-time group-winning stayer Enbihaar (Ire) (Redoute's Choice {Aus}); Handassa (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), the dam of the dual Group 1-winning Nazeef (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}); and the multiple group-winning Tarfasha (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}). Handassa is booked back to Kingman for 2022, while Tarfasha visits Ghaiyyath (Ire) and Enbihaar visits Mohaather (GB). She is among a handful of high-quality mares that Shadwell is sending to its G1 Sussex S. winner, and those also include the aforementioned Nazeef.
