SAYIF (IRE): What People Are Saying...

“a lot of scope for a sprinter, was fast,fast,fast, did carry his speed to a mile (1.34) for me."

PATRICK BIANCONE

"Sayif is one of the nicest horses I have bought, he cost 200,000gns at Bk1 of the Tattersalls October sales and he has easily matched that price with his racing performance.

“He is a good looking, well topped, correct and free moving individual, who won the Group Two Diadem Stakes in impressive style and was Group One placed. On the racecourse his performance has easily matched his good looks.

“He is the best son of his sire, Kheleyf, and comes from a speedy family.  His half brother Hunter Street won the Group Three Cornwallis Stakes over five furlongs, and I feel sure he will make an excellent addition to the stallion ranks.

“His owners Saleh Al-Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar will be supporting Sayif with their mares.”

TONY NERSES

“He is a good looking, powerful two-year old type, with a great temperament.”

DAVID HODGE, LLETY FARMS

“He just gets better and better.”

PETER CHAPPLE-HYAM

"A good sort: very smart performer.... showed good turn of foot"

“We are truly delighted to be standing Sayif for his owners and feel that he offers a serious opportunity for breeders to use a stallion who should get tough, running, winning two-year-olds as well as successful older horses. Sayif is by an up and coming sire from one of the best sire lines in the stud book and acted on any ground. He should prove extremely popular with the commercial breeder who is looking for speed and toughness. His fee offers a real chance to cash in at the sales.”
