Majestic Noor off the mark for famous family

Our good week continued at Yarmouth on Wednesday with the victory of our well regarded homebred Majestic Noor for John Gosden in the 1m2f fillies novice race.

The daughter of Frankel had shown progressive form last season, notably when runner-up on her second start at Chelmsford City. Well backed as a result on Wednesday, she made all under Frankie Dettori and bravely held off challenges from all sides to land her first win.

Majestic Noor represents two generations of Blue Diamond breeding as a daughter of Nouriya, another stud homebred who carried our colours to victory in the Listed John Musker Stakes and Listed EBF Lyric Stakes.

She is a half-sister to our brilliant racemare Aljazzi, the winner of five races including the Group 2 Duke Of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot and Group 3 Atalanta Stakes at Sandown. At the end of her career, the daughter of Shamardal sold for a sale record of 1 million guineas at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale.

Majestic Noor is also a half-sister to the winner Nawar. Their dam, Nouriya, is a half-sister to the Listed-placed Lady Nouf and Balmoral Handicap winner Yuften, who also finished second past the post in the Prix Jean Prat. They are out of foundation mare Majestic Sakeena.

Nouriya has a two-year-old colt by Golden Horn named Liverpool Knight who is also with John Gosden. She also has a yearling colt by our multiple Group 1 winner Decorated Knight and returned to Frankel this year.

Blue Diamond is also home to Nouriya’s daughter Cristielle, who recently foaled a striking colt from the first crop of US Navy Flag.
