By Dubai Millennium – Zomaradah (Deploy)
£250,000 Oct 1, Special Live Foal. Standing at Dalham Hall Stud, Newmarket
The fastest ever to sire 50 Group winners and has more Group winners than any other stallion at the same stage in their careers. Sire of 26 G1 winners so far. 19% Stakes winners and 9% Group winners from his first six crops makes him one of the world’s greatest stallions.
Dubawi
The stats, the magic Click for more...

We can tell you about his successful offspring – 26 G1 winners at the last count: it would take a while. We can say he gets 16% Stakes winners to starters, even more impressive than greats like Sunday Silence and Galileo, or that 35% of his runners are rated Timeform 100 or higher. Then there’s his yearling average – £848,731 for 2015-16: not just colossal, it’s the world’s highest.

But the essence of what makes the Dubawis so good can’t be studied in a book or measured with a calculator: they have the heart and mind to be racehorses. Even if you can’t see it, that’s the magic of Dubawi.
