Guineas winner Shadayid dies after foaling.

Byline: Roy Briggs

Shadayid, winner of the 1991 1,000 Guineas in the colours of Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, has died in the United States while giving birth to her ninth foal, writes Roy Briggs.

The daughter of Shadeed won five of her 11 starts when in training with John Dunlop, and was unbeaten in three starts as a two-year-old, including the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp.

She was also placed in the Oaks, Coronation Stakes, Sussex Stakes, Haydock Sprint Cup and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes before being retired to the paddocks at the end of her three-year-old career.

Shadayid haemorrhaged shortly after giving birth to a filly foal by Seeking The Gold at Shadwell Farm Stud in Kentucky at the weekend.

A spokesperson for Shadwell Stud, in Norfolk, said yesterday: "The vets did what they could, but were unable to save her. Fortunately the foal is fine and is now with a foster mare.

"It's a very sad loss and it would be nice if the foal turned out to be as good as her mother."

Shadayid provided Dunlop with back-to-back successes in the 1,000 Guineas following Salsabil's victory in the 1990 renewal, and the trainer paid tribute to her.

He said: "She was a remarkably versatile filly. She won the 1,000 Guineas, was placed in the Oaks and was then placed in the Haydock Sprint, which was quite extraordinary. She was top-class."

Willie Carson, who rode her in the Guineas and in all bar one of her races, added: "She was a very, very good filly. I remember she was always quite excitable and needed to be taken down to the start quietly."

Shadayid's most successful offspring so far has been Bint Shadayid, a Group 3 winner and third in the 1996 1,000 Guineas.
