Shadwell Offers Complimentary Reports for Full Roster

TrueNicks is pleased welcome the Shadwell Farm stallions into the TrueNicks program. The Shadwell roster features nine stallions at their Versailles, Ky., property, including four exciting young prospects.

[Invasor] was an unbeaten Horse of the Year in South America and he earned that same distinction in North America by reeling off successive victories in the Pimlico Special, Suburban Handicap, Whitney Handicap, and Breeders Cup Classic (all gr. I), the last over Bernardini (TrueNicks,SRO) . His only career loss came in the 2006 UAE Derby (UAE-II), which he avenged a year later with a facile romp in the Dubai World Cup (UAE-I). His first foals will begin arriving after the first of the year.

The first foals of two more Shadwell-raced grade I winners will also hit the ground shortly. [Jazil] won the 2006 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) over Bluegrass Cat (TrueNicks,SRO) . It's fair to say that this son of Seeking the Gold hails from the hottest family in the stud book. His little half-sister Rags to Riches won the 2007 Belmont, and his similarly-bred half-brother Casino Drive might have made it three in a row for their dam Better Than Honour, if not for a stall injury the morning of the race this past June.

[Daaher] came into his own in the fall of his sophomore season, crushing seasoned allowance foes at Saratoga by over 13 lengths and then making short order of the grade II Jerome Handicap at a mile. He then made it look all too easy in the Cigar Mile (gr. I), disposing of Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I) winner and Eclipse champion Midnight Lute (TrueNicks,SRO). He earned a sparkling 114 Beyer speed figure for the effort.

[Mustanfar] is another intriguing prospect, especially in this era of three-surface racing in North America. The son of Unbridled won a pair of graded events as a 3-year-old and earned black type on turf, dirt, and synthetic surfaces. He is out of the Lyphard mare Manwah, a daughter of champion Height of Fashion, herself the dam of three champions.

Shadwell is also home to the veteran stallions [Dayjur], [Dumaani], [Intidab], [Kayrawan], and [Swain].
