Vamos! Noozhoh Canarias off to stud
After flying the flag for Spanish-breds on the track, next phase beckons
Noozhoh Canarias, who flew the flag for Spanish-breds in Britain and France, has been retired to Yeguada Torreduero near Valladolid, after an agreement was reached between the stud and his owners.
Noozhoh Canarias placed in stakes company for three different trainers. A talented juvenile, he finished second – beaten under a length – to Karakontie in the 2013 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere. In his Classic year, he finished sixth in both the 2,000 Guineas and the July Cup, before earning a peak Racing Post Rating of 118 when third in the Prix de la Foret.
Racing on to the age of six, he bowed out with second in a mile Listed contest in his native Spain.
A Grupo Bolanos Gran Canaria homebred, Noozhoh Canarias represents a somewhat less prolific branch of the Green Desert sire-line.
He is by Caradak, a son of Desert Style – the latter better known as the progenitor of Classic sire Paco Boy, who was sold to stand in Turkey this year.
Noozhoh Canarias is a half-brother to the French Listed winner Money Maker, out of the winning Singspiel mare Noozhah.
He will stand at Torreduero alongside a Group 3-winning son of Shamardal in Lightning Moon, as well as Abdel and Motarassed.
