High Class Arrowfield Mares Confirmed For Shalaa

Friday, 27th January 2017

Meanwhile, following the overnight announcement that Champion 2YO Shalaa will shuttle to Arrowfield Stud from 2017, Arrowfield’s Chairman John Messara said, “We’re excited to stand Europe's dominant sprinting two-year-old Shalaa at Arrowfield in association with Al Shaqab, alongside their Champion sprinter-miler Olympic Glory.” Messara observed, “Shalaa displayed the high quality, early-maturing speed that Australian breeders demand and offers a fresh take on the Danzig sire-line that is clearly working here. I have inspected him personally and he is a great physical type, ideally suited to the Australian market. Arrowfield will support him strongly with a significant number of our quality mares.” Benoit Jeffroy, Manager of the Al Shaqab breeding operation, commented, “Shalaa is a standout individual, well balanced, correct and he is a great mover. As a son of Invincible Spirit he should undoubtedly prove as popular with Australian breeders as he has been in Europe.” And Khalifa Al Attiya, Al Shaqab Racing‘s General Manager, said, “We are delighted that Shalaa will be shuttling to Arrowfield Stud in Australia. After his tremendous racing career we have all the hopes he will become a top sire, and we’ve entrusted him with some of our own top quality mares including dual [Gr1] Arc winner Treve.”
