3YO MUQAAWEL Best at Deauville

Coming off a stakes placing last time out at Cagnes-sur-mer, MUQAAWEL got back to the winner’s circle with a one-length tally going 1500 meters in the Prix du Perche on the polytrack at Deauville. The 3-year-old colt by DAAHER has now won or placed in four of six starts, including a debut win on the turf at Leicester last June. At Cagnes-sur-mer last time out and his first start in four months, MUQAAWEL closed through the stretch to finish just 3/4 length back of winning the Prix de la Californie S. MUQAAWEL was bred by Shadwell Farm out of the Danehill mare Ekleel, who is a half-sister to three-time G1 winner Aljabr.
