Shalaa Filly out of Rhaenys, who is the half-sister to DUNDEEL. Bred on a similar cross as her sire, SHALAA and Group 1 winners ABLE ONE, BRAZEN BEAU and HOME AFFAIRS. The filly has finished breaking in and did so well, breaking in 1 week earlier and this shows you how smart she is. Picked up everything very easy and very straight forward, great temperament. Gordon, the breaker, could not be any happier with her.

Our filly passed her x-rays and clinical vet examination and passed as low risk suitable for racing.

David Mourad (BBT Racing Manager) comments:Beautiful Shalaa filly out of Rhaenys. Rhaenys is a half-sister to DUNDEEL, so she has a massive pedigree. Lovely type of filly very elegant the way she moves. She has nice knees on her and I think she will make some sort of 2yo. Own horse syndicates victoria.

Sheamus Mills (Bloodstock Agent) comments: Shalaa filly out of a Redoute’s Choice half-sister to DUNDEEL so you have a beautiful pedigree behind this filly. By Shalaa who is doing a really good job with his runners. I also really liked the way this filly walked and she has a lot of class about her.

Ciaron Maher (Trainer) comments: We bought the Shalaa filly with Blueblood Thoroughbreds, super pedigree huge DAM lines out of DUNDEEL, ZABEEL huge great broodmare sire. A lot of quality about her.

Ciaron Maher took his first tentative steps in racing as a teenager, working with a trainer after school each day. He was an apprentice jockey with Peter Hayes in Adelaide and Melbourne. Then becoming an accomplished jumps jockey, competing in Australia versus Ireland jockey challenges and riding in England, Ireland and Dubai.

In 2005 he established himself as a trainer in Warrnambool, home of jumps racing. First winner was Spectacular Storm in a hurdle race at Terang, followed up smartly by another win at Sandown. Stage was set for a successful career not only in jumps racing, but also on the flat as the stable grew. Ciaron Maher has also since moved to Caulfield, where he has expansive stables on the course. Furthermore Ciaron has retained facilities in Warrnambool, which suit horses in need of a country setting. Secured new premises at Randwick. At his property in Pakenham, on the edge of Melbourne’s suburbs, he has agistment and pre-training facilities.

A young trainer with an eye for picking winning prospects at yearling sales. He has built a stable of loyal owners as well as successful horses. Ciaron also welcomes first-time owners as well as experienced racing hands. Hard-working, thoughtful and, above all, patient. Consequently his promise is that every horse will be given every chance to develop its full potential.

Ciaron Maher discovered the thrill of Group 1 success in 2007 with TEARS I CRY winning the VRC Emirates stakes at Flemington.

Black type races have flowed since then, SRIKANDI winning the Group 1 AAMI Stradbroke Handicap and the Group 1 Sky Racing Tatts Club Tiara, SET SQUARE winning the Group 1 Crown Oaks, and the following year, JAMEKA winning the Group 1 Crown Oaks including the Group 1 BMW Stakes and the Group 1 Caulfield Cup not forgetting LOVING GABY (by I Am Invincible) winning the Group 1 William Reid Stakes in 2020.
