In training

Munaddam (USA)

Chesnut Gelding
DOB: 09 Apr 2002
Aljabr (USA) x Etizaaz (Diesis)
Owner: Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum

Munaddam is by Aljabr, who won five races and amassed £374,201. His victories included the Group 1 Prix de la Salamandre, Group 1 Sussex Stakes, Group 1 Lockinge Stakes and the Group 3 Lanson Champagne Vintage Stakes. His dam, Etizaaz, won two races including the Listed Ford Atlanta Fillies Stakes.

Munaddam joined us from Godolphin and spent two seasons at La Grange. He won a Folkestone handicap in September 2006, where the drop in grade seemed to reinstall in his confidence, and we were absolutely delighted with his first race in Dubai at the start of 2007. Last turning in for home, Richard Hills gave him a fantastic ride and weaved him through the field to win the 6f International Rated Stakes.

He had a short break when he got back from Dubai before going to Haydock for the 7f Listed Spring Trophy. We were slightly concerned about the easier ground, but this proved no problem and he won the race with a bit in hand.

We then ran him at Newmarket in the Criterium Stakes, where he finished eighth. After this, he ran in the Group 1 Sussex Stakes to guage whether he would stay 1m, but this turned out to be a messy race and proved that the trip was beyond his compass. This was to be his final start for us as he continued his career with Erwan Charpy.
