2010 World Champion 3YO & Miler
Westbury Stud are delighted to introduce the magnificent racehorse Makfi to our stallion roster again in 2012 providing southern hemisphere breeders with a rare opportunity to support one of the world's very best racehorses. Makfi is owned by Qatar Bloodstock and shuttles from his European base of Tweenhills Stud in Gloucestershire. As the most expensive first season sire to retire to stud in Europe in 2011 (being fully booked at a fee of £25,000) and the most expensive sire to retire in New Zealand in 2011, Makfi has again been over subscribed closing his book in the first week of the northern-hemisphere breeding season with 155 mares booked.
The son of Dubawi was the winner of his only start as a two-year-old in France and took out the Prix Djebel, a popular stepping stone for the French 3YO's considering the Two Thousand Guineas at Newmarket. Starting at 33/1, Makfi maintained his unbeaten record through the Group 1 Two Thousand Guineas defeating subsequent Group 1 winners Dick Turpin, Canford Cliffs, Xtension as well as the Aidan O'Brien-trained favourite St Nicholas Abbey. Run on a firm track the opposition had no excuses and the French colt was clearly too good for his counterparts in the first of the British Classics for 2010.
After suffering his first defeat at his fourth start in the St James Palace Stakes after sustaining a throat infection, Makfi was seen next in Europe's mile championship the Prix Jacques Le Marois at Deauville. Against the older horses, he scored a convincing victory over the high class racemare Goldikova and multiple Group 1 winner Paco Boy and recorded his second Group One win in just five lifetime starts. The significance of this victory was borne out in the fact that Goldikova raced on six occasions in 2010 - all Group One races including the Breeder's Cup Mile, Queen Anne Stakes, Prix d'Ispahan, Prix Rothschild, Prix de La Foret - while Makfi laid claim to being the only horse to defeat Goldikova in 2010.
After the Jacques Le Marois, Makfi's rider Christophe Soumillon paid the ultimate compliment to the talented three-year-old by saying, "This colt is the new Sea the Stars."
Makfi raced on six occasions from two and three years of age, recording four wins - two at Group 1 level from 7 to 8 furlongs (1400-1600m) - and achieving an Annual Timeform rating of 130 by the time-honoured Racehorses of 2010 and third on the World Racehorse Rankings as the Joint Top 3YO of 2010 with a rating of 128 - rated above the likes of Workforce, Zenyatta, Rip Van Winkle, So You Think, Goldikova, Black Caviar, etc
Makfi is the most prolific son of the young sensation sire Dubawi who has sired a mammoth 54 individual stakes winners from six crops. The sire of top Group 1 winning international performers including Happy Archer (SAF), Monterosso (UAE), Dubawi Heights (USA), Lucky Nine (HK), Secret Admirer (AUS), Poets Voice (GB) & Waldpark (GER).
Dubawi has sired stakes winners across 13 individual countries world-wide and has established hismelf as a world class sire at an extremely early stage of his stallion career, while Makfi, his most prolific son, is looking to begin in similar fashion.
Among his second southern-hemisphere book of mares were the black type performers Betwixt, Celeris, Zingo, Illuminates, Scarlet Vanhara, Fledgling, Platinum Passion etc.; and the dams of the stakes horses Sworn To Secrecy, Bellini Rose, Full of Spirit, Malandrino, Cellarmaster, Military Grace, Ruud Awakening, Burgeis etc.; and the siblings to stakes horses Polar Success, Stratum, Efficient, Guillotine, Imanannaba, Palacio de Cristal, Crafty Irna, Fully Fledged, Dystopia, My Tusker, Awesome Act, Fastest Magician etc.
