An exciting addition to the team, this filly was bought at Tattersalls Yearling Sale in Newmarket for 32,000 Guineas. Shalaa was a champion two year old in both England and France. Shalaa is by champion sire Invincible Spirit who has established himself as a sire of sires and Shalaa is ranked as his highest rated two year old son.
This quality filly is out of the stakes placed mare, Lady Francesca herself a half sister to Purr Along. She has already bred the useful winner Bartholomew Dias and two year old winner Atheeb. It is a family that Daniel and Claire know well. Claire rode out Lady Francesca regularly when she was in training in Lambourn, Daniel got to know Lady Francesca when she transferred stateside during his time as assistant to trainer to Ben Cecil in California.
