SIXTY-ONE lots on from 1534, the Masar colt and Solario Racing struck again with another colt by a young sire, also beginning with “M” and again well bought, for 22,000 guineas, a lovely son of Mohaather.

The striking, good-looking bay son of Group One Sussex Stakes winner, Mohaather, patiently trained by Marcus Tregoning, was one of 18 by the sire catalogued in Book 3 of Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.

Attractive, good-looking and a relaxed easy-going walker, this strong colt is by first season sire, Mohaather, owned by the late Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum.  The son of Showcasing won five of his eight starts, from 6f to a mile, culminating in the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood in July 2020.

The successful trainer, Marcus Tregoning said post-race: “He’s got a very good turn of foot. He does find heaps under pressure. I’d have been pretty sore if he hadn’t been able to win.”

“Winning jockey, Jim Crowley said: “He’s an aeroplane. This is serious. In that race, you’re talking about the best milers in Europe and I wouldn’t say he’s made them look ordinary but he’s won very well.”

Getting to know the Mohaather

Getting to know the Mohaather

Praise indeed!

Of course, it takes two sides of a throughbred pedigree to make a yearling and the dam’s side is impressive too.  The dam is by three-times Group One winner, Rip Van Winkle (by Galileo) who also won the Sussex Stakes along with the QEII and the Juddmonte International.  She has produced one winner from one runner, Overactive, who has won twice as a 3yo this year over middle distances and been placed four times.  He has an official rating of 84.

I went to see him yesterday to take a few photos but he had only just arrived, so was rather lively but I did take some shots.  Another more lengthy photo-shoot is immiment!

This very exciting colt will be syndicated in 1/12th shares and will be trained by Amy Murphy in Newmarket.  To arrange a private viewing of the Mohaather,  please call the Racing Office on 01442 877 597 or email info@solarioracing.com.
