Aly Khan Memorial Cup to go on display at the National Horseracing Museum

A trophy won by Sir Winston Churchill's own colt is set to go on display at the National Horseracing Museum.

The Aly Khan Memorial Cup, which was raced for just once, has been donated to the museum to be displayed in the new centre in Charles II's racing stables when it opens to the public in 2016.

The cup was won by Churchill's horse High Hat, who was sired by Hyperion, and whose skeleton is on display at the museum, on July 4, 1961.

Director of the National Horseracing Museum, Chris Garibaldi, said: "The trophy is of particular importance to the history of horseracing in this country illustrating as it does in a single object both the pivotal role of the Aga Khan's family in their patronage of the sport and Sir Winston Churchill's private passion for the Turf.

"We are intending to feature the cup very prominently in our new Sporting Glory gallery in the Palace House redevelopment alongside Pathe newsreel both of the 1961 race itself and Sir Winston Churchill attending the races.

"It shows a less well known side to the most important British political figure of the 20th century and we could not be more pleased or honoured."

Aly Khan was a racehorse owner and jockey. His most famous horse was Petite Etoile, who came second place to High Hat in the race for the cup in 1961.

Communiqué France Galop : - 03-10-2015

Un doublé pour son Altesse Aga Khan !





UN DOUBLE POUR SON ALTESSE AGA KHAN

En 2009, année du sacre de Sea The Stars dans le Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Son Altesse l’Aga Khan avait remporté toutes les courses de Groupe du week-end (à l’exception de l’Arc bien sûr) !

Samedi, la célèbre casaque verte épaulettes rouges avait deux partants seulement dans les courses de Groupe du jour… et les deux ont gagné.

Vazirabad a remporté comme un champion le Qatar Prix Chaudenay, la course réservée aux stayers de 3ans, faisant dire à son entraîneur Alain de Royer Dupré : « La course est allée vite et j'ai eu l'impression qu'il venait un peu tôt. Mais Christophe [Soumillon, ndlr] lui avait laissé une chance. Vazirabad a pour lui cette façon d'accélérer. Aujourd'hui, il montre qu'il sort de l'ordinaire. C'est un très beau cheval qui progresse. Il est suffisamment bon pour courir sur 2.400m. Il a gagné à Deauville sur une piste souple, mais il est meilleur en bon terrain. Il est engagé dans le Prix du Conseil de Paris (Gr2). Cependant, les terrains souples vont arriver. Nous allons voir. »

Puis Candarliya a dominé le Qatar Prix de Royallieu, avec une certaine marge mais en devant un peu plus s’employer que Vazirabad, Elle restait sur une deuxième place derrière Trêve dans le Qatar Prix Vermeille…

-----------------------------------------------


2015, October 3: Paris, France: Horse Race at Longchamps- Win after Win! Princess Zahra, Princess Sara and C. Soumillion accept Arc de Triomphe Prize. Qatar Prix Chaudenay. 2nd Win: Qatar Prix de Royallieu for Candarliya who wins the 3rd Race.

Classy Vazirabad far too good in Prix Chaudenay

By Peter Scargill and Jack Haynes 1:38PM 3 OCT 2015

Report: France, Saturday

Longchamp: Qatar Prix Chaudenay (Group 2) 1m7f, 3yo

VAZIRABAD thumped his rivals in the style of a useful individual as he stormed clear in the closing stages to win under a hands and heels ride for Christophe Soumillon.

Race result

Trained by Alain de Royer-Dupre for the Aga Khan, Vazirabad needed to be niggled to get into contention rounding the turn for home but looked in a different league once his rider asked for an effort and he powered clear.

The others fought out the places between themselves with Vazirabad's only moment of concern coming when he jinked slightly just before the winning line.

De Royer-Dupre said: "He is a very nice horse who is improving all the time. He could be good enough to run over 12 furlongs. He won at Deauville on soft ground but it doesn't suit him. He likes the good ground he got here."

The Twisler, trained by Jane Chapple-Hyam and ridden by Olivier Peslier, lacked the tactical speed to hold his position at the top of the straight and kept on for fifth.

Chapple-Hyam said: "We are disappointed, but he's come back safe and sound. Olivier said it was an interesting race in terms of the pace, but he didn't blame the ground.

"Olivier also said two miles would not be a problem for him, so that's good to hear. He's still in the Cesarewitch, but that will probably come to soon."

Report: Longchamp

Qatar Prix de Royallieu (Group 2) 1m4 ½f, 3yo+ fillies and mares

Christophe Soumillon and Alain de Royer-Dupre completed doubles as Candarliya justified favouritism in the staying fillies' contest.

Sent of the 4-6 favourite, Candarliya, also owned by the Aga Khan, needed to be cajoled along inside the final furlong to hold the sustained run of 12-1 shot Lady Of Kyushu, who ran on well in the closing stages, with Scalambra third.

It looked a relatively straightforward task for the Aga Khan's Dalakhani filly prior to the off as she finished a six-length second to Treve in the Group 1 Prix Vermeille last time, but she made hard work of securing this Group 2 prize yet confirmed her status as a filly in form this season.

John Gosden's Martlet held her own in this company, travelling well for a long way before failing to land a blow on the front three, finishing out of the places, while Peter Fahy's Ballybacka Queen led for a long way before weakening out of contention inside the final furlong and a half.

Royer-Dupre said: "I'm not surprised she won because she was second to Treve in a Group 1 last time. She has a big turn of foot and that is very impressive.

"She is a very light filly and that was her seventh run of the season so she will not run again this year. Next year I'm sure she will be a real Group 1 horse."

Flashback 1983: kidnapping of Shergar

This weekend 33 years ago, prize-winning racehorse Shergar was kidnapped, never to be seen again





Star: Shergar with Jockey Walter Swinburn after his Epsom Derby win in 1981.

One foggy evening in 1983, the IRA kidnapped a much-loved five-year-old from his home in Co Kildare. But, as one man who claimed to have heard the inside story later wrote, "They couldn't cope with him, he went demented, injured his leg and they killed him."

That the five-year-old was a horse makes it less shocking than if it had been a human child, but at the time there was wide public anger at the kidnap of a national hero. Shergar had won the 1981 Epsom Derby, followed soon after by the Irish Derby; "He's only in an exercise canter!" gushed BBC commentator Peter O'Sullevan as he romped home by four lengths at the Curragh. Another big win came at Ascot in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes before he was named European Racehorse of the Year for 1981.

The horse was retired at the end of that season, and took up residence at Ballymany Stud, Co Kildare, where his arrival was marked by a parade down the main street in Newbridge behind the town band and school children waving the green and red colours of Shergar's owner, the Aga Khan, leader of about 20pc of the world's Shia Muslims.

The Aga Khan sold 34 shares in the horse for £250,000 each, and kept six for himself, valuing Shergar at £10m. In 1982 he produced 35 foals, and another 55 mares were lined up to be covered in 1983.

But one week before the stud season was due to begin, a group of at least six men drove a horsebox through the unlocked gates to Ballymany and forced the groom, James Fitzgerald to load the animal aboard while his family was held at gunpoint. The horse was driven away and Fitzgerald released three hours later.

In the Irish Independent, writer Anthony Cronin compared the heist to the theft of the Mona Lisa and the Irish Crown Jewels. Commentator Micheál O'Hehir said he rated the horse as good, possibly better, than the great Nijinsky, and expressed concern that it might lead to a flood of racehorse departures from Irish stables.

The police operation was not the Gardaí's finest hour, although they were hampered by an eight-hour delay in hearing about the crime and because it was carried out on the same day as the biggest horse sale in the country, with horseboxes teeming on the nation's roads. The garda in charge, James 'Spud' Murphy, pursued unusual methods, with clairvoyants and psychics sought out for their views. His trilby sparked a resurgence in demand for the hat, with many of the international media covering the case adopting his style.

The gang tried to secure a ransom, and enlisted three UK racing journalists as intermediaries, but the deal collapsed in farce and one, Derek Thompson of ITV, received a call telling him there had been an accident and the horse was dead.

No ransom was paid, and most of the owners were unable to secure payment from insurers, who claimed there was no evidence of the horse's death. The mystery of who carried out the crime, and the last resting place of the great racehorse, have still to be solved.

Aga Khan maintain the family grip on one of the greatest prizes in racing

Paul Hayward Chief Sports Writer

4 June 2016 • 6:59pm




Aside from being the England football team’s hotelier in Chantilly for Euro 2016, His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan VI is indelibly associated with one of the grandest Derby wins, 35 years ago. Shergar’s rampaging 10-length victory ended in one of the great racing tragedies – his kidnap and disappearance – but the bloodstock empire he represented maintains its hold on Epsom’s biggest prize.

Harzand’s one-and-a-half length win over US Army Ranger at odds of 13-2 was a first in the race for Dermot Weld, his peripatetic trainer, and Pat Smullen, an eight-time champion jockey in Ireland.

But for the Aga Khan it extended a tradition started by his grandfather in 1930. Blenhem was the first of five Derby winners for the current Aga’s predecessor and was followed by Bahram (1935), Mahmoud (1936), My Love (1948) and Tulyar in 1952.

The current spiritual leader of Ismaili Muslims has captured Flat racing’s defining event with Shergar, Shahrastani, Kahyasi, Sinndar and now a horse who would have been withdrawn at the start had Smullen noticed anything amiss after his mount sustained a foot injury on the way over.

If Harzand’s mile and a half journey was a drama, it was nothing compared to Shergar’s life story: a tale that clearly still haunts the Aga.

Asked to compare his quintet of Epsom champions, he said: “I remember Shergar coming round Tattenham Corner and thinking – he’s cantering. Looking through my binoculars I thought – this can’t be happening.”

That chillingly exciting image is easy to recall, even now, and while Shergar’s owner has bred countless champions since, his green and red silks will always evoke one of racing’s deepest and darkest mysteries.

“Winning the Derby is a goal for any owner. It has been for centuries. This is a great race with a great history,” the Aga said here. “It’s been that way for three generations of my family.”

Weld is another statesman of the racing game, but despite winning big races on four continents since taking over his father’s training licence in 1972, he had never won the race that still elevates trainers to the highest echelon. He pioneered global training missions, winning the Belmont Stakes, a leg of America’s Triple Crown, and the Melbourne Cup. These overseas victories marked him out as an innovator, but six Derby runners since 1986 had carried him no closer than third (Casual Conquest, in 2008).

Was the elusive nature of Derby success needling him? You would guess so, judging by the swiftness of his response. “I’ve trained, I think, 23 Classic winners in Europe,” Weld said. “My first was Blue Wind in the Epsom Oaks a long time ago [1981 – the same year as Shergar]. I’ve won a couple of Irish Derbys. I’ve always wanted an Epsom Derby. Perhaps we haven’t had a horse good enough. Today was the day.”
US ARMY RANGER

Harzand and US Army Ranger will probably meet again in the Irish Derby at The Curragh, across the road from where Weld trains. “It’s probably hereditary in his breeding that he’s a late maturing horse,” Weld said. “We often say - ‘Oh the Derby three-year-olds, the staying three-year-olds, are not as good as we hoped’ - and lo and behold a good horse comes out and wins the Derby.

“It’s nature that these late maturing horses usually run well about this time of year. These are typical late maturing colts. When we worked him the other day at The Curragh we saw him moving forward nicely, we saw that sparkle. He is a good tough horse, a real solid individual.”

A son of Sea The Stars, the brilliant 2009 Derby winner, Harzand has corrected an anomaly in Weld’s fine career and showed the Aga Khan’s team to be as skilled as ever at breeding champions. There will always be a shiver, though, when we recall that the most aristocratic of the owner’s five Derby winners was Shergar.

Famous Five: The Aga Khan's Derby winners

By David Baxter 6:32PM 4 JUN 2016

Harzand gave the Aga Khan a fifth Derby winner and this year's winner joins an illustrious group of Epsom scorers for the owner.
Shergar

Shergar 1981
The standard which all Derby winners should be held to, Shergar was magnificent during his career, and his ten-length winning margin in the Derby is yet to be topped.
Shahrastani

Shahrastani 1986
The son of Nijinsky completed the British and Irish Derby double, downing the previously unbeaten Dancing Brave at Epsom before winning at the Curragh by eight lengths.
Kahyasi

Kahyasi 1988
The green and red silks are traditionally associated with the Aga Khan, but Kahyasi won in his much less seen second colours of green and brown hoops. Like Shahrastani, he then went to the Curragh and won the Irish Derby.
Sinndar

Sinndar 2000
Epsom would prove to be the starting point of a unique treble for Sinndar, as he then won the Irish Derby before claiming the Arc leading his jockey Johnny Murtagh to say: "He's the best horse...unbeatable."
Harzand2-360

Harzand 2016
A fifth win for the Aga Khan nearly did not happen as a spread plate on the morning of the Derby left Harzand's participation in doubt. However there was no major damage and he beat US Army Ranger to give trainer Dermot Weld and jockey Pat Smullen their first wins in the Classic.

Almanzor wins French Derby to deny Aga Khan a major double

Almanzor, a 20-1 outsider trained by Jean-Claude Rouget, denied the Aga Khan a Derby double on Sunday when he came with a strong run inside the final furlong to beat Zarak in the Prix du Jockey-Club (French Derby) at Chantilly.

Zarak, in the same green and red colours which were carried to victory by Harzand at Epsom on Saturday, stayed on strongly in the closing stages but could not get on terms with the winner. Foundation, from John Gosden’s yard, attracted plenty of support before the race and set off as the 4-1 favourite but finished well beaten, while Roger Charlton’s Imperial Aviator, a supplementary entry, also failed to mount a serious challenge.

The French Derby is run over 10 furlongs rather than the Epsom Classic’s distance of a mile and a half but the winner often develops into a leading candidate for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Almanzor is quoted at around 16-1 for European racing’s all-aged championship event in October, when the race will be staged at Chantilly while its traditional home at Longchamp is redeveloped.

“He is improving and I had no doubts at all about the trip or his condition coming into the race,” Rouget said. “We always thought he had a chance. We wouldn’t have run him otherwise. We have no plans at the moment but he’ll be a better horse on better ground.”

Dermot Weld, the trainer of Harzand, said on Sunday that he will consider running the Derby winner in the St Leger at Doncaster in September.

“Time will reveal all,” Weld said. “He’s a lovely colt and he could be an ideal English Leger horse or, indeed, if it was a wet autumn, a lovely horse for the Arc.”

Hugo Palmer, who took the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket with Galileo Gold in April, added another Classic to his record when Hawksmoor took the German 1,000 Guineas at Düsseldorf.
