HOW valuable was victory for the four-year-old Tamayuz (Nayef) filly Hunaina last weekend? She won the Listed Betfred Snowdrop Stakes at Kempton Park for her new owner Trevor Stewart and trainer Henri-Francois Devin, and in the process netted prizemoney of over £25,000.
However, the real value of the victory was the impact on the filly’s own worth. She cost Stewart €170,000 when sold at Goffs last November as part of the annual reduction of the Aga Khan Studs, where she was bred. Now she is worth well north of that figure, having been listed-placed prior to the weekend and now gaining her all-important first stakes victory.
