Half-Brother to Mourinho by Shamus Award

 In 2015

Shamus Award covered a terrific book of mares in his debut season last spring and among them was good producer Benevolent (NZ), the dam of seasoned stakes performer Mourinho, who claimed his first Group I victory last weekend in the MRC Underwood Stakes.

The first foals of Cox Plate hero Shamus Award are receiving widespread praise, the dual Group I winning son of Snitzel proving a popular choice for breeders again this year.
