Mshawish Relocating To Stand Privately In Qatar


Multiple Grade 1 winner Mshawish will be relocated to Qatar for the 2023 breeding season to stand privately for owner Sheikh Joaan Al Thani, BloodHorse reports.

Sheikh Al Thani previously owned 50 percent of Mshawish, and he bought out the remaining syndicate members to move the stallion to Qatar. The 12-year-old son of Medaglia d'Oro previously stood at Taylor Made Stallions in Nicholasville, Ky., where he entered stud in 2017.

From three crops of racing age, Mshawish has sired 91 winners and compiled progeny earnings of $4,432,633.

His debut crop included Sainthood, who finished 11th in the 2021 Kentucky Derby and followed that effort with a victory in the Grade 3 Pennine Ridge Stakes. French Group 3 winner Bellharbour Music and Peruvian Group 3 winner Grand De Oro are also among his most accomplished runners.

During his own racing career, Mshawish won eight of 24 starts for earnings of $2,421,351. His first races came internationally, where he became a Group 3-placed multiple stakes winner in France, and a Group 2 winner in the U.A.E. He became a dual surface star in the U.S., winning two graded stakes each on both dirt and turf, including the G1 Donn Handicap on the main track and the G1 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap on the grass.
