Saadiyat (Lope de Vega X Sweepstake) was a close 2nd, beaten three quarters of a length, on her only race as a 2YO in October 2022. With promising efforts, on soft ground, at Longchamp in June and July she started as favourite when going to Vichy on August 2nd. Stepping up to one mile and two furlongs in the Louis Cambreleng Maiden Stakes she obliged followers with a hard fought win, bringing her winnings to date to just over €20,000. Her owner and trainer say that she will next run in pattern company, preferably on good ground and over the longer distance. Saadiyat is a half sister to Broome and Point Lonsdale. The former a GR1 winner and many group placings and the latter a multiple GR2 winner and GR1 placed.
We all look forward to the racecourse debut of Diego Valazquez, the 2YO sibling to all three who we are told will be on a racecourse in the weeks ahead.
