Just to let you know we tried to purchase a share in a bay colt by Al Maher from Randwick Bound which sold for just $60k in the Inglis Classic Sale this year.  But was too late as he'd already been fully sold.

He's brother to the South African raced Group 1 winner Rumya, half-brother to the Group 2 winner Badawiya, and is a direct descendant of the outstanding mate Emancipation.  To be trained by Patrick Payne.

Have this feeling we may have missed out on a superior performer here, so watch this space!

Not a good photo as his neck appears out of proportion.  No doubt you'll find some genuine fault too.  Wink

The above fellow sadly died as an early 2yo.  But here's something for those looking at prospective stallions in 2021:

Set to stand his third season at Mike and Brodie Becker’s Stockwell Thoroughbreds at Diggers Rest, stallion Al Maher gave a little reminder of his worth to breeders when handy mare Chassis won at Flemington on Saturday.

The Victorian bred mare was a $40,000 purchase from the Supreme Thoroughbreds draft at the 2018 Melbourne VOBIS Gold Yearling Sale for Cranbourne trainer John Price.

Supreme Thoroughbreds took the filly home when she was passed in on a $50,000 reserve as the 2017 Great Southern Weanling sale and then sold her as a yearling.

Price, who is manager of a syndicate made up of around eight Western Australians and a couple of Victorians, has a clear path mapped out for the rising five-year-old who is out of Poco Gusto (Hussonet x Kachina), a winner of three country races for Caulfield trainer Colin Little.

Price plans to chase some black type for the mare and when her racing career is over will offer her for sale in foal to an as yet decided stallion.

And it’s a plan that Mike Becker fully supports as he continues to see the facts and figures that confirms Al Maher – the Group 1 winning son of Danehill – as a sire of broodmares.

Price said that as a future broodmare, Chassis was perfectly suited.  She is a beautiful, big correct mare and has got a good hip and rein on her,” he said.  Her win was very good and we’ll find another one for her down the track somewhere.”

With four wins from just 18 starts, Price said the mare had done well to score victories at Caulfield, Sandown and Flemington.  Although she is yet to race at Moonee Valley, Price said it was a good achievement to win at three metropolitan tracks and even better if she could do it on four.

Price said he didn’t pay a lot for the mare but it was easy to see that she was going to be a lovely, rangy filly that stood over plenty of ground.  I don’t pay a great deal of money for the type of horses that I buy,” Price said.  “She was a no brainer and like I say she has got broodmare written all over her. 

And Price was more than happy to buy progeny by Al Maher.  What I love is the longevity in him,” he said.  He has been around for a long time and is still producing and although he never reached any super star status, he has lasted a long time. He is a well performed sire.”
