New to Woodside Park Stud in 2023, Shalaa has already proven himself as a sire on the rise across his six seasons at stud across both hemispheres, producing 15 individual stakes winners including six black-type two-year-olds, much in the mould of himself.
A Great Britain and French Champion two-year-old after victories in the 2015 Group 1 Prix Morny at Deauville and Group 1 Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket, legendary jockey Frankie Dettori described Shalaa as the fastest two-year-old he had ever ridden.
Shalaa was rated champion two-year-old in Great Britain and France subsequent to these victories.
Shalaa has already sired Group 1 winner No Speak Alexander who claimed the Leopardstown Matron Stakes while Seven Veils in Australia proved too good when winning the Group 2 Reisling Stakes.
Having also sired Magic Millions Classic winner Shaquero, Shalaa has proven himself to be a sire that can produce the early two-year-olds as well as horse who can produce Group 1 performances at three.
We are excited to have purchased Shalaa, adding him to our roster for 2023, and we can’t wait to see the smiles on our breeders after they foal down a magnificent type of their own.
