Baaeed Powers To Impressive Sussex Triumph

It takes a real good one to make Goodwood's G1 Qatar Sussex S.--a "Win And You're In" for the GI Breeders' Cup Mile--look like a piece of strong work, but then all who assembled on the Downs on Wednesday have come to expect nothing less by now from Shadwell's stellar miler Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}). Like the champions Rock of Gibraltar (Ire) and Frankel (GB), who stopped off here as they devoured group 1s, the peerless homebred is almost running his own virtual reality race against them by...

Oasis Dream's Marbaan Pounces Late At Goodwood

Successful in two of his first three outings, Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum's Marbaan (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}--Zahoo {Ire}, by Nayef) belied odds of 14-1 to claim a career high on stakes debut in Tuesday's G2 Japan Racing Association Vintage S. at Glorious Goodwood. The March-foaled bay opened up with a May 22 third to the reopposing Dark Thirty (Ire) (Straspangledbanner {Aus}) going six furlongs at Newbury before streaking to a five-length tally over the same trip at Nottingham in June and embellished his win column with a half-length score when...

Baaeed Follows The Script In The Queen Anne

Tuesday's curtain-raiser to the Platinum Jubilee Royal Ascot 2022 went as planned, with Shadwell's Baaeed (GB) (Sea the Stars {Ire}) carrying on his winning streak in the G1 Queen Anne S. in the kind of straightforward fashion that is his hallmark. With the G1 Lockinge S. runner-up Real World (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) taking it to him this time up the centre of the track, the 1-6 favourite was forced to engage with that rival more than he had done at Newbury but while the final margin was narrowed, the...

Hukum Powers To Coronation Cup Glory

Shadwell's homebred 5-year-old entire Hukum (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}--Aghareed, by Kingmambo) struck four times at Group 3 level in 2020 and 2021 before annexing Meydan's Mar. 5 G2 Dubai City of Gold and went postward for his European return in Friday's G1 Dahlbury Coronation Cup at Epsom coming back off a seventh in March's G1 Dubai Sheema Classic. Stepping out of the shadow of his hitherto unbeaten full-brother Baaeed (GB), he was unmatched in the closing stages of the 12-furlong contest and powered clear of a select field to...

Baaeed Is Unmatched in Newbury's G1 Lockinge

Unbeaten through six starts after annexing last October's G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. at Ascot, Shadwell Estate Company's 4-year-old homebred and G1 Prix du Moulin hero Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}--Aghareed, by Kingmambo) launched his quest for superstardom by putting a stellar field to the sword in Saturday's G1 Al Shaqab Lockinge S. at Newbury. Europe's top miler of 2021, and the world's joint-highest alongside Hong Kong's immovable force Golden Sixty (Aus) (Medaglia d'Oro), made relentless progression throughout his perfect sophomore campaign and continued in similar vein to plunder...

Dubawi's Rogue Millennium Pounces Late For Oaks Trial Success

The Rogues Gallery's Rogue Millennium (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}--Hawaafez {GB}, by Nayef), who was plucked from the Shadwell operation for 35,000gns as an unraced 2-year-old at last year's Tattersalls December Mares sale, graduated over 10 furlongs in an Apr. 24 Wetherby maiden and punched her ticket to Epsom's June 3 G1 Cazoo Oaks with a narrow victory in Saturday's Listed SBK Oaks Trial at Lingfield. The February-foaled bay has yet to be entered for next month's Classic and connections are keen to stump up the £30,000 supplementary fee for the privilege....

Frankel's Mostahdaf Back With A Win At Sandown

Shadwell Estate Company's 4-year-old colt Mostahdaf (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) endured his only defeat in six prior starts when a badly-hampered 12th of 13 in Royal Ascot's G1 St James's Palace S. last June and went postward as a strong odds-on favourite for Friday's G3 bet365 Gordon Richards S. at Sandown coming back off a win in October's G3 Darley S. at Newmarket. It was not all plain sailing in the three-runner affair and he was made to earn his corn by King Power Racing's G3 Rose of Lancaster S. winner...

Freshman Sire Tasleet Off The Mark At Great Yarmouth

Confronted by just six rivals in Tuesday's British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Fillies' S. over an extended five furlongs at Great Yarmouth, David Loughnane trainee Carmela (Ire) (Tasleet {GB}) made no mistake to become the first winner for her freshman sire (by Showcasing). Recovering from a tentative getaway departing the stands' side stall to race in a close-up second after the initial exchanges, the 8-1 chance loomed large on the bridle passing the quarter-mile marker and stretched clear once shaken up for control approaching the final furlong to easily account...

Baaeed Pounces For QEII Glory At Ascot

Unbeaten in five prior starts heading into Saturday's G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. at Ascot, Shadwell Estate Company's Baaeed (GB) (Sea the Stars {Ire}) fought back a stellar field in the one-mile Breeders' Cup "Win And You're In" contest to stay perfect with a commanding performance over the track's straight mile. Backing up a Leicester maiden win and a 7 1/2-length novice rout at Newmarket in June, he went three-for-three with a four-length tally in the July 8 Listed Sir Henry Cecil S. back at Headquarters before producing an explosive...

Raabihah Supreme in Prix de Pomone Triumph

Shadwell's 4-year-old distaffer Raabihah (Sea the Stars {Ire}), unsuccessful in five outings since annexing last term's G3 Prix de Psyche at Deauville, rebounded off three second-place efforts this year and produced a telling burst at the end of Sunday's G2 Darley Prix de Pomone to register an impressive score upon her return to the Normandy venue. The contest was delayed by an excessive hold in the gates while a replacement battery was installed a failed break and the homebred chestnut was positioned in a stalking fourth for the most part....
