In training

Maqaadeer

Colt
DOB: 03 Nov 2016
Mukhadram x Burnt Fingers (Kheleyf)
Owner: Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum

Maqaadeer is by the Eclipse winner Mukhadram, who is a freshman sire this year and has already been represented by some useful winners. The dam Burnt Fingers was a mile winner at three, and is a sibling of the Listed-placed Coconut Penang and Millbag. 

Maqaadeer had shown a bit at home, but was down the field on his debut at Newmarket. He returned to the same venue for a seven-furlong novice on his second start in August, and demonstrated a good deal of speed before tiring late on. 

He did very well physically from two to three, and returned to racecourse action with a good second place finish in a Lingfield novice over a mile. Rated 72 on the back of that effort, he was a fair fourth at Chelmsford on his next start, but we hope he can do better back on turf at a more galloping track.
