In training


DOB: 08 May 2016
Shamardal x Amathia (Darshaan)
Owner: Ms Helian Jianru & Mr Yin Yue

This colt is by Shamardal, brilliant winner of the the Dewhurst, French 2,000 Guineas, French Derby and St James's Palace Stakes. He has continued his remarkable record at stud, producing numerous Gr.1 winners including Able Friend, Mukhadram and Pakistan Star

The dam Amathia won a nine-furlong Listed race in France at three and is closely related to a host of smart performers including Gr.2 winner Ivan Luis and the Listed winner and Gr.2 placed Hathra, who also placed in the 1,000 Guineas. Amathia has produced four Black Type performers herself including Distant Memories who has won at Gr.3 level.

Helian was unraced at two, but showed steady progress in his three qualifying runs for a mark as a three-year-old. He has been allotted a mark of 68, and it is hoped that he can prove more than capable of winning from that sort of rating once he tackles a mile and a quarter later in the season.
