SHEIKH Fahad is assembling a top-quality broodmare band and joining it in the spring will be the five-year-old Hurricane Run mare Wekeela, a winner at Group/Grade 3 level in France and the USA and runner-up in both the Group 1 Pour Moi Coolmore Prix Saint-Alary and the Grade 1 Coolmore Jenny Wiley Stakes.

From the family of Group 1 winner and champion sire Monsun, Wekeela cost David Redvers 1,800,000gns and was consigned by European Sales Management on behalf of owner Martin Schwartz. “She is an absolute beauty and with great ability,” said Redvers. “She is a young, incredibly sexy mare and let’s hope she breeds some magnificent foals.”
