Mishriff On Recovery Track To Begin Stud Career In March

David Egan is all smiles after the Saudi Cup victory with Mishriff

Dual-surface international star Mishriff is on pace to begin his stud career in March after a minor issue required his debut to come after the traditional start of the breeding season, Racing Post reports.

The 6-year-old son of Make Believe resides at Sumbe's Haras de Montfort et Preaux in France, where he was being well-received by breeders ahead of the season, but a non-life threatening benign pathology that was first announced on Jan. 3 put a temporary halt on when he would start covering mares.

“He has excellent tissue, which has aided his recovery, and everything has gone according to plan,” Sumbe's Mathieu Le Forestier “Pretty much everyone has kept the faith and we have no worries on that score,”  told Racing Post. “Pretty much everyone has kept the faith and we have no worries on that score.”

Le Forestier said the vast majority of breeders that planned on sending mares to Mishriff have agreed to wait for the stallion's recovery, and not booked elsewhere in the interim. Mishriff has been on display to breeders inside his stall.

Mishriff won seven of 21 starts during his on-track career, amassing $16,034,853. The bulk of those earnings came when winning the 2021 Saudi Cup on dirt, which he followed up with a switch to the turf to win the Group 1 Dubai Sheema Classic. He also tallied Group 1 victories in France and England over the course of his career, racing for Prince A.A. Faisal and trainer John Gosden.

Mishriff will stand for an advertised fee of €20,000.
