An exciting draft at the Goffs Champions Sale

Monday 4 September 2017

Haripour standout among quartet of Aga Khan winners.

The Aga Khan Studs exciting draft of four winning colts and geldings at the forthcoming Goffs Champions Sale is highlighted by HARIPOUR, half-brother to dual Derby hero Harzand.

A five and a half-length winner at Navan in June over a mile and five furlongs, HARIPOUR (Shamardal) has also been placed twice in Ireland. Still an entire, the three-year-old boasts an excellent pedigree, being out of Group 3 victrix Hazariya (Xaar), herself a half-sister to Group 3 winner and Irish and Yorkshire Oaks third Hazarista. Hazariya is the dam of 2016 Epsom and Irish Derby scorer Harzand, who now stands as a stallion alongside his sire Sea The Stars at Gilltown Stud. Her progeny also includes three more black-type performers; Harasiya, winner of the Gr. 3 Silver Flash Stakes and Group 1 third, Listed victrix Hazarafa, and Group placed Haziyna.

Dual winner ZABALAN has recently proved his well-being with success over an extended ten furlongs at Roscommon. The four-year-old colt is lightly raced but has finished in the first three on five of his six outings. ZABALAN is a son of Dutch Art and winning Dalakhani mare Zanoubiya who has already produced Group 3 winner Zannda.

Another dual winner, TIRMIZI, scored by an astonishing 17 lengths at Listowel in June. This four-year-old son of Sea The Stars is out of winner and Listed placed Timabiyra, and is a grandson of Champion mare Timarida, a triple Group 1 winner.

Closely related to dual Derby and Arc winner Sinndar, SIKANDARABAD (Dr Fong) counts one victory and three places. He is a son of winning mare Sindiyma (Kalanisi), the full sister to Listed victrix Sindirana, while his second dam Sinndiyna is a half-sister to Champion racehorse Sinndar.
