Faisal to step into the breach.

Byline: David Lawrence

PRINCE FAISAL BIN SALMAN has been appointed to take overall responsibility for the Throughbred Corporation following the death of his brother

Ahmed Salman last week, writes David Lawrence.

Prince Faisal, who has horses in training in his own name with Sir Mark Prescott and Paul Cole in Britain, as well as with Julio Canani in California,

yesterday described the appointment as "an honour".

He added: "Richard Mulhall has done a wonderful job as president of the

corporation and will continue in this

capacity for the day-to-day running of its racing and breeding in the US and


"No dispersal of horses owned by the Thoroughbred Corporation has been contemplated by the family. However, the Thoroughbred Corporation regularly

consigns to the sales in Kentucky in

November and January.

"A plan was made earlier to offer a

limited number of mares and weanlings this year and this will likely go ahead."

Earlier, Mulhall had told Daily Racing Form: "I've been told to run it like I

normally would, and I'll continue to do that until I'm told differently."

He added: "Attorneys for Prince Ahmed who are in Riyadh, and Neil Popiano, the Prince's attorney here, along with myself, are going to meet and come up with a new game plan.

"The meeting will probably be in a few weeks and will probably be in London, since that's a good halfway point for everybody.

"Right now, everything belongs to Prince Ahmed's wife and his children. It's up to them what they want to do, but I'm sure Prince Faisal will advise them."

nThe Thoroughbred Corporation's

Shagraan, trained by John Dunlop, was the most notable absentee after yesterday's latest forfeit stage for the Tote Ebor at York on August 21.

Godolphin's four-year-old Alunissage currently heads the weights in the big one-mile-six-furlong handicap, for which a

total of 58 still stand their ground.
