First Start For $2.2 Million Yearling
Tomorrow's race meeting at Newcastle, north of Sydney, will play host to one of 2015's leading yearlings when 3YO colt Shaheen (Snitzel-Admirelle, by General Nediym) has his first start. Accepted for two maiden events (over 1150m & 1300m) Shaheen was knocked down to Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum at the Inglis Easter Sale for $2.2 million from the draft of high profile vendor Milburn Creek. Shaheen is a full-brother to young Newgate Farm stallion Sizzling, a Gr1 winner of $1.3 million. Dam, Admirelle, has had three colts subsequent to foaling Shaheen – by Redoute's Choice, I Am Invincible and Snitzel.
