Shalaa fires up with four winners in 8 days

As he begins serving his fourth book of Australian mares, Shalaa’s first European runners are showing why he has been so popular in both hemispheres.

His daughter Samrah (ex Badee Ah by Motivator, from the family of Champion Enable) scored over 1600 metres at second time of asking in France on Saturday, after a first-up third on 5 August. 

His son Legal Attack (ex Lauren Louise by Tagula) opened Shalaa’s week with a comfortable debut win over 6 furlongs at Newmarket on 29 August. The Simon & Ed Crisford-trained colt is entered for one of the two Group 1 races Shalaa won in 2015, the Middle Park Stakes on 26 September, as well as the Dewhurst S. G1 a fortnight later.

A pair of Shalaa colts posted a cross-Channel double on Thursday. After two placings in his first three starts, Longlai (out of Listed winner Mojo Risin by Lope de Vega) broke his maiden at Salisbury , while King Shalaa (ex Baki by Turtle Bowl from the family of leading sire Anabaa) added a second win to his debut success with a gritty effort at Lyon Parilly.

This takes Shalaa’s tally of European first-crop juvenile winners to nine. His first Australian 2YOs race this season from most of the country’s leading stables.
