Al Samer salvo in Sydney

Hyamo continued the late-season salvo of winners for Al Samer when she scored an on-pace victory in the STC Members Maiden Hcp (1100m) at Canterbury on Wednesday.  Al Samer is based at Emirates Park (Victoria) and his first crop have taken off with five winners in as many weeks.  

Hyami (2f  Al Samer – Fawayez by Royal Academy) is trained by Chris Waller and is an Emirates homebred for His Excellency Nasser Lootah.  She was always in the first three at Canterbury and kicked to a clear lead when Tim Clark went for home in the straight.

Al Samer got the filly from a winning half-sister to G3 MRC Blue Diamond Prelude winner Faiza.  Her dam Fawayez was trained by Graham Rogerson and won a Wyong maiden in 13 starts.  She has also foaled the Adelaide stakes performer Miss Piggy Bank (Secret Savings) and delivered an Al Samer colt last year.

Al Samer has now sired 6 individual winners in his first crop since Custom Design opened the winning account at Tamworth in Februuary.

Mr Chard kick-started the latest run of results with a brilliant victory at Flemington.  He buttered up seven days later to finish second to potential top-liner Precious Lorraine in the Listed Gibson-Carmichael Stakes at headquarters.  A week later, Al Samer sired a running double with Magnetosphere (Tasmania) and Al Jandar (Victoria).  They both look top prospects and so does Hyami who notched a first for her sire in NSW.

Al Samer also has a very smart type named Choegouigippeum in South Korea.  He streeted older rivals by more than five lengths in a 1200m event for foreign bred horses at Busan last month.

Al Samer (Redoute’s Choice) was a G3 winner of the Canberra Black Opal Stakes and he stands for a $7,700 (inc gst) fee at Emirates Park in Digger’s Rest.
