Ghaiyyath retired to stand at Kildangan Stud

Ghaiyyath, who was birthed from Dubawi, has officially retired from racing and will be standing at Kildangan Stud next year.

The Dubawi horse was able to retire from the game with four Group 1 victories; he won three out of them this year; the Eclipse, the Juddmonte International, and the Coronation Cup, with best new online casinos having offered odds for the races before being won by the horse.

Ghaiyyath, who is highly regarded as a high-class juvenile, broke his maiden at the Newmarket with five lengths ahead before moving on to secure the Group 3 Autumn Stales in October 2017.

The Godolphin Racing-owned horse was able to secure victory in the Group 3 Prix du Prince d’Orange to complete a three-year-old unbeaten campaign, before finally moving on to four to claim a victory in the Group 2 Prix d’Harcourt.

Ghaiyyath, who is being trained by Charlie Appleby, secured his first Group 1 victory in a stunning fashion, as he wins the Grosser Preis von Baden by an astonishing 14 lengths last September. This is said to be the best performance to happen in Germany for this century.

This year, Ghaiyyath has just been outstanding as he kicked off the 2020 campaign with another victory claimed by another wide margin group win, but this time it was by eight and a half lengths wide-margin victory, which he won at the Dubai Millennium Stakes at Meydan.

He was able to secure his second victory adding it to his record, after returning to Europe, by defeating Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck in the Group 1 Coronation Cup at Newmarket breaking the course record in the process.

And that was just the tip of an iceberg, as he was able to secure a victory among high-class horse in the Group 1 Eclipse, which included Enable, thus earning himself a Timeform rating of 133.

In August, Ghaiyyath was able to claim his fourth Group 1 win at York, where he won the vintage renewal of the Juddmonte International by three lengths, this win was backed and predicted by jeux casino before it started.

The plan formerly set in motion was to have Ghaiyyath perform in the Breeders’ Cup, which is to be held in November, but while making preparations for the race last week, Charlie Appleby claimed that the horse showed signs of soreness at his back and after following up with a further investigation, the horse was said to be muscle sore.

Speaking to the media, Appleby said: “Ghaiyyath has had a fantastic career winning nine of his 13 races. His high-class cruising speed and relentless style of galloping was a joy to watch and as I have said before, this year he came together both physically and mentally and looked like the finished article. It is disappointing not to be taking him to the Breeders’ Cup but the exertions of a long season, which started in Dubai in January, we’re starting to show and the decision has been made to retire him.

“He was an outstanding part of the Moulton Paddocks team and I know that his numerous top-level successes gave our principal, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed, a great deal of pleasure.”

Managing director of Godolphin Racing in Ireland, Jos Osborne added: “Ghaiyyath is a great addition to our roster: his superior ability as a racehorse combined with his looks and his pedigree will make him a sought-after option for breeders. We are delighted he will be standing at Kildangan Stud next season.”

In a cross made from Dubawi and Galileo, Ghaiyyath was born. Dubawi, being highly successful, was able to win the IRISH 2,000 Guineas, Prix de Jacques Le Marois, and is famously known for the Night of Thunder moment.
