CURRENT STARS

Some of the current star racehorses running in the colours of H.H. the Aga Khan and Princess Zahra Aga Khan.
The Australia filly ran once at two, running well to take third in a fillies’ maiden at Leopardstown behind subsequent Stakes winner and Group 1 performer Sounds Of Heaven. Returning to the track in 2023, Shamida was again third in a fillies’ maiden - which was this time won by Warm Heart, who would later go on to Group 1 victory in the Yorkshire Oaks. 

Shamida got off the mark at the third time of asking at Leopardstown, and returned to the same track later in the season to win the Gr.3 Stanerra Stakes, showing great courage to get up by a head. The following month, she won her third race in succession, keeping on well to take the Gr.3 Irish St Leger Trial Stakes and demonstrating that she was a filly with Group 1 potential.

She became the first winner of 2023 for H.H. the Aga Khan when she broke her maiden on 12th January at Lyon. She went on to win four more times that season, including the Listed Prix Joubert at ParisLongchamp in September, where she kept on well to win by two-and-a-half lengths. 

On her final race of 2023, Shembala placed a close third to subsequent Group 1 winner Double Major in the Gr.2 Prix Chaudenay over Arc weekend.

Zabiari made an impressive winning two-year-old debut in May 2023 at ParisLongchamp, and was subsequently sent straight to Stakes company at Deauville. He placed a close second in both the Prix Roland de Chambure (to the more experienced and subsequent Group winner Beauvatier) and the Critérium du Fonds Européen de l'Elevage (a race won by subsequent Champion Three-Year-Old Vadeni in 2021), before stepping up to a mile in the Gr.3 Prix de Chênes.

He won Group 3 contest in good style, defeating two other Stakes horses and suggesting that he could be a Group 1 colt in the making.
