EQTIDAAR: Group 1-winning sprinter will be introduced at £6,500

EQTIDAAR, a Group 1-winning sprinter by INVINCIBLE SPIRIT, will be introduced to breeders at a fee of £6,500 (1st January, Special Live Foal) for the 2020 season. 

Trained by Sir Michael Stoute, EQTIDAAR was an impressive winner on debut at two, but it was as a three-year-old that he really hit his stride when winning an ultra-competitive renewal of the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.  

EQTIDAAR boasts a strong pedigree, being a half-brother to Group 2 Hungerford Stakes winner and Classic runner-up MASSAAT out of a winning ACCLAMATION mare from the family of Group 1 horses PRECIEUSE and SCOTTISH. 

Four-time Group 1-winning sprinter MUHAARAR – the highest rated son of OASIS DREAM – will command a fee of £20,000 (1st January, SLF) in 2020.

MUHAARAR has made a fine start to his stud career, posting a double-figure tally of juvenile winners from his first crop including Group performer UNFORGETABLE as well as exciting trio CUSTODIAN, ENEMY and GIFTED RULER.

SHAMARDAL’S Group 1-winning son MUKHADRAM has made a solid start to his stud career with his first two crops of racing age yielding four stakes horses, headed by US Grade 3 scorer A BIT SPECIAL, and more than 40 individual winners, including this year’s Listed-winning two-year-old ROMSEY.

MUKHADRAM will stand at the unchanged fee of £6,000 (1st January, SLF) in 2020.

TASLEET was well supported by breeders during his first season in 2019, covering more than 100 mares, of whom 17 were black-type performers and 14 dams of black-type performers.

The son of SHOWCASING who was a stakes-winning sprinter at two, three and four will command an unchanged fee of £6,000 (1st January, SLF) in 2020.

Richard Lancaster, Shadwell Stud Director said: “We’re delighted to be standing EQTIDAAR at Nunnery Stud in 2020 and we feel he possesses everything that commercial breeders are looking for: he’s a Group 1-winning sprinter - who won at two - by one of the hottest sires around in INVINCIBLE SPIRIT. He also has the pedigree and looks to match his racecourse achievements and at £6,500 represents outstanding value.

“MUHAARAR has made a pleasing start with his first two-year-olds and we go into the winter months expecting them to develop into even better three-year-olds as was the case with him. The appetite for his stock has remained high, a point emphasised by his yearling prices and he covered a full book of high-class mares for the fourth consecutive season in 2019.

“MUKHADRAM offers breeders a great opportunity to tap into the SHAMARDAL sire-line at an affordable price. His three-year-olds have operated at a clip of nearly 50 per cent this year and he has produced another stakes-winning two-year-old in ROMSEY, plus Royal Ascot scorer THANKS BE.

“TASLEET was well supported during his first season at stud and he holds plenty of appeal as a Group-winning sprinter by a leading sire from the family of BATTAASH.”
