Westbury To Stand UK Gr1 2000 Guineas Winner Makfi
NZ Westbury Stud (whose principal is Magic Millions boss Gerry Harvey) has secured the rights to stand dual European Gr1-winning 4YO stallion Makfi (Dubawi-Dhelaal, by Green Desert) for the next 4 seasons. Makfi (who retired to stand at England's Tweenhills Stud in Gloucestershire in 2011 after winning last year's English Gr1 2000 Guineas, French Gr1 Jacques Le Marois & French Gr3 Prix Djebel) finished 2010 as 2nd top-rated horse (at 128) on the world rankings from the International Federation Of Horseracing Authorities. Makfi will stand at Westbury in 2011 for NZ$27,500+GST.
