Shadad regains winning form

Successful in the Prix Chéri Bibi (Gr3 PA) in 2019, but devoid of victory since then,

Shadad (TM Fred Texas) crossed the Pyrénées with ambition. Despite the soft ground, he proved an easy winner under Maxime Foulon of the Premio Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup (L PA) at San Sebastian on September 2nd. .Under his 59k (9st 4lb) impost, the Charles Gourdain raider accounted for another Al Shaqab Racing runner, Zalej Al Cham (Azadi). The latter carried 58 k (9st 2lb). Miss Boum Al Maury (Boum de Ghazal) was third.

Shadad is a son of TM Fred Texas (Burning Sand), the Al Shaqab Racing sire resident at the Haras de Thouars. The dam Nasrat (Amer) is a full sister to the President Cup, the Zaabeel International Stakes and the Emir's Sword (Gr1s PA) winning Nizam (Amer). The grandam is none other than the much heralded Nerva du Cassou (Baroud III).
