Owned by Al Thumama Stud – Managed by Hilke Cécile De Bruycker
Beautifully presented by Tom Oben for his Obi Training in Belgium
Breeding Polish – bred mares who carry dam lines to Aristocratic Kuhailan mares like Algeria, Bandola and *Orla to Shanghai EA, the outrageously typey Ajman – owned son of WH Justice, was a true Turning Point and a brilliant move as his own dam line is to the Polish mare Biruta by Trypolis – and like Gazal Al Shaqab who carries a tail female line to Ellora, a spectacular Janow Podlaski daughter of Witraz by Ofir, that connection to the mares of the State Studs never hurts and in fact goes a long way.
Shanghai EA truly has himself and passes on to his get, a near perfect breed type.
It is Straight to Stroehen this weekend for Orla Turnia and Tom Oben who will carry the banner for Al Thumama Stud. We wish them well.
