First Foal For Taghrooda

Tuesday, 8th March 2016

Epsom Oaks and King George winner Taghrooda gave birth to her first foal last month - a filly by high profile Banstead Manor Stud stallion Kingman, reports Racing Post. The Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned Taghrooda (Sea The Stars-Ezima, by Sadler's Wells), who became the first filly to win the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes since Pawneese in 1976, signed off on her brief but brilliant career when finishing third behind Treve in the 2014 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. Shadwell Stud director Richard Lancaster said he is delighted with Taghrooda's first foal. "She's a good, strong, filly - an excellent first foal with plenty of quality." he said. "Taghrooda has settled in to motherhood well after a routine foaling - she will visit Dubawi this season." The beautifully bred Taghrooda hails from the same female family as The Queen's Ascot Gold Cup winner Estimate, as well as Irish Oaks winner Ebadiyla, and Moyglare Stud Stakes winner Edabiya. If that isn't impressive enough, all of the aforementioned mares descend from one of the most influential broodmares in history, namely Frizette, ancestress of the legendary stallions Mr Prospector & Seattle Slew.
