IF YOU ARE reading these pages on line in the Newmarket area for Tattersalls December Sale, you may wish to pop along to Shadwell’s Beech House Stud in Cheveley. As from Saturday, resident stallions Eqtidaar, Tasleet and Mohaather will be parading with the chance to win a free nomination to the last named.

All you have to do is provide your details at the gate upon entrance. A 5yo son of Showcasing, Mohaather displayed a tremendous turn of foot to win the mile Group 1 Sussex Stakes as a 4yo last year, having won the Horris Hill Stakes as a juvenile and the Greenham Stakes as a 3yo. Both those races were over 7f at Newbury.

He retired last year the winner of five races, from eight starts, and amassed almost £288,000 in prize money. He stood his first season at £20,000 with that fee reduced to £15,000 for 2022 so the lucky winner of the free nomination is securing a valuable ‘freebie’.
