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.
