Shadwell’s Daaher Pensioned To Old Friends

Daaher at Old Friends

Shadwell Stable's Daaher has been pensioned to Old Friends, the Thoroughbred Retirement farm in Georgetown, Ky.

Retired from racing in 2008 following an ankle injury, the Canadian-bred son of Awesome Again out of the Canadian stakes winner Irish Cherry, was best known for his upset win over the heavily favored Midnight Lute in the 2007 Grade 1 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct.

In his two seasons on the track, Daaher collected earnings of $455,163 under trainer Kiaran McLaughlin, and won both the Cigar Mile and the G2 Jerome Handicap. He retired with 4 wins and 2 thirds from 9 starts.

Originally standing at Shadwell's Nashwan Stud in Lexington, Daaher was relocated to Circle H Farms in Abbeville, La., in 2019 before being pensioned.

“We're grateful to Shadwell for allowing us to care for this great son of the late Adena Springs-Old Friends stallion, Hall of Famer, Awesome Again,” said Old Friends President Michael Blowen. “He accomplished so much in his brief career. I know his fans will be excited to see him.”
