We were thrilled to purchase MAKAARIM for the Thurloe string at the July Sales in Newmarket with our agent Matt Coleman. MAKAARIM is a winning three-year-old for previous trainer Marco Botti and most recently finished a fast finishing second to Thurloe owned Intimate Art.
MAKAARIM is a first foal by the good Group One winning sire, Tamayuz and out of the Dubawi mare, Dubawi Cheetah. MAKAARIM’s grand dam, the useful Magical Cliche, is a full sister to a horse called Easy to Copy, who was a Champion stayer in Ireland, which suggests that there is plenty of stamina in MAKAARIM’s pedigree.
MAKAARIM is a horse with good form and is still in his prime. He will go into training with Hughie Morrison who is having a very good season. Hughie is thrilled to be training him and said: ‘He is a smashing-looking horse with plenty of scope for improvement. I am really looking forward to campaigning him in the top handicaps!’
The plan is to get MAKAARIM back on the track for an Autumn campaign.
