Majestic Sakeena joined the Blue Diamond Stud broodmare band in 2006 when purchased for 200,000gns and swiftly rewarded her new owners when foaling Nouriya, who in 2007 became the first Stakes winner bred at the stud under its current owners. Nouriya reached her peak for Sir Michael Stoute during the summer of 2010 when following up her success in the Lyric Stakes at York by defeating older fillies in the John Musker Fillies’ Stakes at Yarmouth.
The daughter of Danehill Dancer, who is closely related to the top miler Zafeen, is now a member of the Blue Diamond Stud broodmare band. Her first foal was Aljazzi, who provided us with a momentous day last year when taking the Group 2 Duke Of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot. Also successful in the Group 3 Atalanta Stakes, Aljazzi went on to realise a sale record of 1 million guineas when sold to Newsells Park Stud at the 2018 Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training Sale.
Nouriya also has a Frankel two-year-old filly with John Gosden. She visits Lope De Vega in 2019.
