|PROGENY'S RACING PERFORMANCE: |
THREE FORTHCOMING YOUNGER HALF-SIBLINGS RESPECTIVELY BY MANDURO (2010), DALAKHANI (2011) AND HALLING (2012) HAVE YET TO RACE; AKEED MOFEED IS HER 1ST FOAL.

Likewise to retired international Group I juggernaut YOUMZAIN as yet another previous stringer owned by major owner Jaber Abdullah, AKEED MOFEED has been a 5-time starter while under John M. Oxx¡¦s care in Ireland, and broke his maiden as a juvenile over 1400 metres at Leopardstown. With John Murtagh getting the call in that winning performance, AKEED MOFEED, drafting beautifully in third to fourth positions through the early markers, was let loose to route the opposition down the lane and score by five lengths at wraps. Though finishing fourth in the Irish Derby (IRE-GI) as a sophomore, this individual was already 18 ½ lengths behind the winner CAMELOT; then in his last start on Irish soil before the sale to Hong Kong ¡V a listed event going 1600 metres at Cork back in August 2012, AKEED MOFEED, was not sold to a huge bait of an early lead opened up by the Coolmore speedball AMONG EQUALS, but rather stalked a deep and reserved second until turning for home, where bursting with a late charge from the rail, he just blew the door wide open on the field by another 5 lengths at the finish.
COMMENTS AND PROSPECT (original version: 10/1/2013):
AKEED MOFEED is sired by DUBAWI, a speed-dominant 5-time winner at a mile or under, including three Group I events. As a stallion for a mere 7 seasons, 2012 has undoubtedly been DUBAWI¡¦s banner year, when his get worldwide have already wolfed down US$13,061,388, catapulting him up to twenty-fourth (24) in the International Sires List, his best performers obviously being Dubai World Cup winner MONTEROSSO and Hong Kong's very own LUCKY NINE, the pair of which contributed nearly 60% of the total prize earnings, while the connections of the recently retired Arc champion SOLEMIA also wasted no time in booking her to DUBAWI in the 2013 breeding season, once again reinforcing the remarkable popularity of this red-hot progeny. From the local fraternity, DUBAWI mainly boasts winners at a mile or under.
As a typical fourth-generation cross in trying to blend MR.PROSPECTOR¡¦s top speed with NORTHERN DANCER¡¦s stamina, yet lacking any particular Chefs de Race through recent generations, AKEED MOFEED has only a mediocre Dosage (DP/DI) of 12/1.00; having said that, 3 points from his 12-point Dosage Profile Distribution (DP) do come from SHIRLEY HEIGHTS and SADLER¡¦S WELLS, a pair of third and fourth-generation forebears on both sides. In addition, with such a long, slender stride so reminiscent of his broodmare sire TIGER HILL, AKEED MOFEED should primarily be a talent to handle a mile or further with ease. As seen from his overseas campaign, this new import has more than often clobbered the opposition with good tactical speed; though having blundered woefully against triple classic winner CAMELOT, AKEED MOFEED, coming from the very same star-studded crop of 2009 by DUBAWI that boasts English 2000 Guineas (ENG-GI) runners-up HERMIVAL, and Chester Vase (ENG-GIII) winner MICKDAAM of the 2012 classic generation, is still a lot of horse to exploit in the territory. Moreover, so lightly raced with only 5 career starts to date, this classy, highly-regarded group stakes prospect should still move forward by significant measures in Hong Kong, and be a deep force to reckon with for all major prizes to come.
COMMENTS AND PROSPECT (last update: 30/3/2014):
Of his updated sixteen-runner (16) brigade that features ten (10) winners, DUBAWI has undoubtedly secured his status as one of the most sensational progenies in Hong Kong, with eight (8) delivering in this season alone, including LUCKY NINE, AKEED MOFEED, MAJESTIC ANTHEM, LET ME GO, PROLIFIC CHAMPION, CAPITAL K, GUN PIT and BERLINI combining for a staggering total of nineteen (19) victories, where LUCKY NINE and AKEED MOFEED are running the table, sweeping five (5) Group I prizes from sprints to routes.
In overseas, DUBAWI has even been more scintillating as of late, producing in all of a sudden eleven (11) Group I winners, featuring on top of LUCKY NINE and AKEED MOFEED, TIGER TEES, newly prevailing in the 1100-meter Galaxy Handicap (AUS-GI), AL KAZEEM, a triple winner of the 2200-meter Tattersalls Gold Cup (IRE-GI), the Prince of Wales¡¦s Stakes (ENG-GI) and the Coral-Eclipse Stakes (ENG-GI) through the 2013 campaign, andMaktoum Challenge ¡V Round 3 (UAE-GIA) winner PRINCE BISHOP
As a dual winner of the Hong Kong Derby (HKG-GI) and Hong Kong Cup (HKG-GI), AKEED MOFEED, though lacked some luck recently in the Dubai World Cup (UAE-GI) at Meydan, Dubai, still managed to finish fifth on the night, and is undoubtedly one of the classiest runners in the territory that for sure will run up the score upon his current four-win (4) column.
