Shalaa filly was purchased from internationally renowned Arrowfield Stud and what a beauty she is. Few stallions stamp there stock like Shalaa and this attractive filly is cast very much in his mould. Certainly, well put together, very muscular and all in proportion. Such a great type, nicely balanced and easy on the eye. Very intelligent and has a great temperament for such a young horse.

A filly with quality, presence and is a great mover. Big strong filly while having very good length and athleticism. Well boned and above all and has 2yo written all over her. There is a lot to like.

She has a gold mine rate 20/20 with 11 individual Group 1 winners bred on the same breeding patterns including MOONLIGHT CLOUD (6 x Grp1’s), PERSIAN KING (3 x Grp 1’s) and BRAZEN BEAU (2 x Grp 1’s). This filly is also bred on the same cross as her sire SHALAA. Furthermore, she has an outstanding international pedigree being the direct descendant to 35 Individual black type winners, 7 at Group 1 level, 3 at Group 2 level and 9 at Group 3 level. Closely related to VENTURA and HARLEM. Not to mention Werk Nick Rating A+.

Our Shalaa filly also passed 100% clean on her x-ray, scope and clinical examination.


SHALAA by INVINCIBLE SPIRIT. Champion 2YO Colt in France & GB in 2015. 6 wins-5 at 2-at 1200m including Deauville Prix Morny Group 1 and Newmarket Middle Park Stakes Group 1

Shalaa made an immediate impact in 2020/21 with his first-crop 2YOs headed by dual Group 3 & Magic Millions Classic winner Shaquero, Group-placed fillies Nice For What & Tayla's Moment & stakes-placed city winner Hunnam. He more than held his own among a dynamic group of First Season Sires to finish fourth on that Premiership with 7 winners and earnings of $1.9 million.

Buyers liked what they saw and paid more than six times his fee for 76 of Shalaa's second-crop yearlings, including the Shalaa-Honesty Prevails colt purchased for $1.15 million by James Harron at Magic Millions.


READINGS by CACIQUE. Talented and has the bluest of Blueblood on both sides of her pedigree, because both her sire Cacique and dam Erudite hail from the famous Juddmonte Farm families. Reading was an above average racehorse winning 4 times and a stakes performer. She is also three-quarter blood sister to Group 3 winner and Group 1 placegetter SILVER TOUCH.
Her dam ERUDITE won 2 races including a win at listed level and placing also in a Group 1.
