The seventeen year old son of Djelfor, from one of the outstanding Watrigant families that have produced many top class racehorses, MONSIEUR AL MAURY had shown that he could produce good, tough individuals for the racecourse. His best progeny include winners such as Vulcain du Clos, Udallan, Azizi, Elraawy, Baume du Breuil and many others.
Shadwell director Richard Lancaster said: “This is an enormous blow to everyone who has been involved with MONSIEUR AL MAURY. From limited opportunities, he was establishing himself as a proven sire in Europe.”
Bred by Mme Koch, his second dam was Managhi, full sister to Manganate and dam of Tidjani. Bought by Shadwell after his victory in the Prix Damas at 4, MONSIEUR AL MAURY was then trained by Gill Duffield for Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum and won the President of the UAE Challenge Derby (Gr.2) at 4 and HH The President Cup (Gr.1) at 5.
Upon retirement he stood several years in France before returning to England to stand at Shadwell’s Beech House Stud, in Newmarket.
