Posted on: 19th Jan 2017

A Dubawi filly out of Group 1 and Classic placed Shadwell homebred MAQAASID is the first foal of 2017.

The 2017 season has got underway with the arrival of the first foal at the Nunnery Stud.

By DUBAWI, the bay filly was born in the early hours of January 19th and is out of homebred MAQAASID, a Group 2 winning and dual Group 1/Classic placed member of the Shadwell broodmare band.

Trained by John Gosden, MAQAASID won her first two starts in 2010 as a 2-year-old, including the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes at Ascot on her second outing. MAQAASID finished off her 2-year-old season with an impressive 3rd in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes in Newmarket. She then went on to gain Classic form when finishing third in the Group 1 1,000 Guineas as a 3-year-old. Bred in the purple, MAQAASID is by GREEN DESERT and is from the Classic Shadwell family of GHANAATI, MAWATHEEQ, HEIGHT OF FASHION, NASHWAN, NAYEF and UNFUWAIN.
