Shalaa Wins Gr1 Middle Park Stakes

Monday, 28th September 2015

At Newmarket in the UK, retained Al Shaqab Racing rider Frankie Dettori guided 2YO colt Shalaa (Invincible Spirit-Ghurra, by War Chant) to a half-length victory for trainer John Gosden in the £180,000 Gr1 Middle Park Stakes (6 furlongs), over fellow colts Buratino (Exceed and Excel-Bergamask, by Kingmambo) & Steady Pace (Dark Angel-Cool Kitten, by One Cool Cat). Considered the best juvenile in Europe and duly sent off at $1.40 after winning his past four starts in a row, Shalaa took his record to 5 wins (also including the Gr1 Prix Morny, Gr2 Richmond Stakes & Gr2 July Stakes) from 6 starts for £410,511. Dettori claims Shalaa is the best juvenile he has ever ridden.
