Classic winner Sayyedati passes away

Classic winner and multiple Group One victor Sayyedati has died aged 17.

The Shadeed mare claimed both the Moyglare Stud and Cheveley Park Stakes in 1992 as a juvenile before going on to success in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket the following year.

Sayyedati also won the Prix Jacques Le Marois that year but she endured a fruitless 1994 for trainer Clive Brittain before bouncing back to claim the Sussex Stakes in her final season.

‘She was a great horse and a pleasure to train. She had speed, class and a great heart,’ Brittain told www.rabbah.co.uk.

Sayyedati enjoyed further success in the paddocks as she produced the 2002 Champagne Stakes winner Almushahar as well as Cunas and Lonely Ahead, who were also winners in Britain.

Her 2007 foal on the ground is a Storm Cat filly.
