Shadwell Arabian Stallion NO RISK AL MAURY sired his first Group winner on 12th July at La Teste de Buch (France) racecourse. The 3 year-old filly AICHA DE MONLAU won the Prix Razzia III, Group 3 PA over 1800m, for owner Mrs Bourdette.

AICHA DE MONLAU is from her sire’s first crop and made a remarkable debut at Toulouse in May, winning the Prix Fedora by a comfortable margin in very heavy ground. At La Teste, ridden by Julien Augé, she made a spectacular return and took the lead from the start to add her first Group victory to her record.

AICHA DE MONLAU is trained by Mrs Elisabeth Bernard who commented: “I fell in love with this filly when she came to us in training and I ride her in the morning. I was very pleased with her first run at Toulouse in difficult ground. The race in Chantilly did not go well but the filly was not affected by it. She was back at work and I felt certain that she would be able to win this Group race today.” She added: “I am delighted to train the first Group winner for NO RISK AL MAURY who I believe will be an exceptional stallion. We have 3 NO RISK AL MAURY’s progeny in the yard and I love all 3.”

NO RISK AL MAURY was the leading Arabian racehorse in Europe and the Middle East with a rating of 128 in 2011. Trained by Gill Duffield, he won 17 races in Europe and UAE including 6 Gr. 1 races, from 4 to 9, and was the first horse to win at Meydan Racecourse.

Born in France in 2002, by KESBEROY and out of NECTARINE AL MAURY, NO RISK AL MAURY is the full-brother of the Group winners NOUBA AL MAURY (Hatta International Stakes, Gr.1), NEVADOUR AL MAURY (Coupe d’Europe des Chevaux Arabes, Gr.1) and NACREE AL MAURY (Prix Damas, Gr.3). His second dam is NEVADOUR, a remarkable broodmare whose descendants are amongst the elite of Arabian racehorses and sires such as DAHESS, BIBI DE CARRERE, KAOLINO, KANDAR DU FALGAS, NIVOUR DE CARDONNE, RUBIS DE CARRERE, NEZ D’OR, NOREEN, SIVIT AL MAURY, SYLVINE AL MAURY…

NO RISK AL MAURY stands at Haras de Saint Faust (France) and is available for natural cover and artificial insemination with frozen semen.
