MARVELOUS QUEEN Earns Year-End Championship Honors

MARVELOUS QUEEN (Dom) went undefeated during the year winning three Graded stakes by wide margins and was named Champion Sprinter of 2015 in her native country. In May, the 4-year-old filly by DAAHER started her season off with a more than eight-length win in a hand ride of the seven-furlong G2 Clasico Dia de las Madres. In July, she soundly defeated a top flight of sprinters to easily win the six-furlong G3 Copa Sprinter Nativos, and closed out her year in October with another dominating performance to win the seven-furlong G2 Copa Dia de la Raza, again by more than eight lengths. MARVELOUS QUEEN was bred by Dr. Angel B. Contreras out of the Gone West mare, Hazimah, and purchased her out of the 2010 Keeneland November Sale carrying this filly. Hazimah, a half-sister to the Shadwell Farm homebred Dewhurst S.-G1 winner Mujahid, is also the dam of the Shadwell Farm homebred multiple stakes winner Elghayoor.
