€15,000 B 2017 16.0½HH (1.63M)
Shamardal – Antiquities (Kaldounevees)
Oct 1, Special Live Foal. Standing at Haras du Logis, Normandy
By Shamardal, from the family of Shamardal, who won the same G1s as Shamardal. In other words, he’s very like Shamardal. Capped an undefeated season at two with a last-to-first surge in the G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère. Brilliant when taking the G1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains at three. Inbred 3x3 to Irish Oaks winner Helen Street, dam of Street Cry.
