Ghaiyyath

€25,000 B 2015 16.2HH (1.68M)
Dubawi – Nightime (Galileo)
Oct 1, Special Live Foal. Standing at Kildangan Stud, Co Kildare

A paragon among thoroughbreds. Dubawi’s Horse of the Year and best ever, out of Galileo’s first Classic winner. His million-guinea top lot is the biggest-priced colt for a freshman since his grandsire Dubai Millennium’s only yearlings. 1,050,000gns, 500,000gns, €600,000, €425,000, €400,000: Godolphin knows just how special a racehorse he was and bought his top five yearlings. 221 foals in his first two crops, and 161 in-foal mares carrying his third.
