Mustazeed is a handsome 4yo son of Territories out of Mejala. Already a winner of two races, he is full of potential and a most exciting prospect for owners!
First payment prorated. Next payment: June 1, 2022
MUSTAZEED is a stunning 4yo gelding by the Group One winner and Two Thousand Guineas runner up, Territories, one of the Top Ten first season sires of 2020, and who has enhanced that reputation in 2021, looking set for a terrific career at stud. Mustazeed is out of the impeccably bred Mejala who is a half sister to no less than FIVE pattern race performers, and comes from the well established Shadwell family that has produced Group One winners Bahhare and Bahri among many other top class performers. His pedigree is, indeed, excellent.
Mustazeed is already a winner of two races. His first win came when waltzing away with his first race on turf, winning at Great Yarmouth by three and a half lengths in June under Jack Mitchell, and his second win came in October at Doncaster, under a brilliant ride from Hollie Doyle – more on this below. This progressive sort looks set for a most productive 2022.
Mustazeed was a late April foal and, as a result, quite green and backward as a two year old. As a result, he has been brought along steadily and after making his debut for Simon & Ed Crisford, we purchased him at the Autumn horses-in-training sales, in October 2020. He was part of a large draft from Shadwell Stud. He was previously owned by former Champion owner and member of the ruling family of Dubai, the late, HH Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum.
Having purchased him and placed him with stalwart Newmarket trainer, Chris Wall, we gave him a couple more starts on the all weather to get him qualified for handicaps and, also, to continue his education. He was always our prime target at the sale, being a three parts brother to a black-type (pattern race) performer in Mutaaqeb and also a half brother to a six time winner, Naralsaif. We were alerted to this horse’s potential well before the sale, indeed, well before he made his racecourse debut in a hot maiden in October noting he had a lovely, laid back temperament. We gelded him in the Winter and he matured nicely through the Spring and Summer, strengthening up nicely, all the while.
Patience really is a virtue with young horses and we feel sure that the time we afforded him over last Winter would be repaid in full and, sure enough, he made his first repayment when winning nicely on his first start on turf, at Yarmouth, winning nicely from a couple of subsequent winners, under Jack Mitchell. This initial success was followed by ecstatic scenes as his new owners were delighted with the outcome, many having their first ever winner and for one syndicate member, their first ever runner. What a start!
Mustazeed followed that up with a couple of good placed efforts notably when a desperately unlucky third at Sandown Park behind HM The Queen’s Wink of an Eye, trained by William Haggas. Travelling every bit as well as that horse as they turned into the home straight, Mustazeed found his way continually blocked but still managed to force his way into third on the line and, undoubtedly, with a clear run would almost certainly have been second if not giving the winner plenty to think about.
In October, Mustazeed was sent up to Doncaster to take part in a decent 1m2f handicap, the final race of the day, and under a superb ride from Hollie Doyle, he stormed forward to win… making Hollie’s day as she broke her record for the number of winners in a year but also creating joyous scenes in the winners enclosure as the members of his syndicate whooped with joy at his scintillating performance.
His victory at Doncaster suggested there is plenty more improvement still to come as he strengthens even more and fills his impressive frame. Indeed, the ever impressive Hollie indicated a similar perspective.
Still very nicely handicapped, he will take us to plenty of good meetings and will continue to provide his owners with plenty of thrills and excitement in that sphere. He really is an excellent prospect and we’re looking forward to him immensely in 2022. There are but a couple of shares left in this impressive 4yo so, if you want to get involved with him..don’t delay!
TRAINER – CHRIS WALL
As indicated, we are very pleased to have placed Mustazeed with well established Newmarket stalwart, Chris Wall, the multiple Group One winning, Fordham Road trainer. Chris has plenty of experience with such types and has been successful at the very highest level showing a consistent degree of success, year on year.
Chris has been training in Newmarket since 1992 having spent several years with, first, Barry Hills in Lambourn where he shared digs with Peter Chapple-Hyam before moving on to an assistants role at Luca Cumani’s Derby winning yard and, then, onto a similar position with Sir Mark Prescott so he really has a first class pedigree, himself, gleaning plenty from each of those Classic winning trainers and, together with his wife Carole, they have built a successful yard that has tasted Group One success on many occasions including both on the continent and, indeed, in the USA.
Chris very much likes Mustazeed and is confident he will be able to help the 4yo fulfil his undoubted potential along with his owners’ hopes and dreams. We are confident that, together with Chris, we can execute a shrewd and well managed campaign designed to MAXIMISE his owners enjoyment and reward!
