We are very excited to participate in this new development in Thoroughbred breeding, utilising the most advanced genomic testing available to improve each breeder’s chance of success with their mare. Albaasil is a very exciting stallion prospect, and his superior genetic makeup combined with the management of Fiddes Racing gives him an excellent opportunity to now replicate his success on the racecourse in the breeding barn.

We are very proud to be the first stud in the world to publicly release the genetic profiling results for our stallion and his entire first crop.
Albaasil is producing elite potential progeny with speed by upgrading his mares from a nomination fee of only £2,500. In 2018, his first two year olds will have the best possible genetic chance of making it to a race course, they are most likely to achieve their best results on turf and their increased genetic durability should enable them to stay sounder throughout their careers.
I was very keen to launch my first stallion in a new and different way. By making Albaasil’s genetic results available to all breeders we are demonstrating that producing elite potential race horses at an affordable price from any type of mare is possible and not purely reliant on luck.
I have fully supported Albaasil with my own quality mares as I strongly believe that he has the potential to become a leading stallion in the future. As Dansili’s highest priced yearling colt in 2008, costing 320,000gns, Albaasil has passed on his exceptional looks, confirmation, temperament and genetics to his progeny, he ticks every single box that breeders of all levels are looking for.
I would personally like to thank the breeders who have supported Albaasil, for allowing us to test their mares and foals and publish the results. By working together to raise his profile, our breeders can look forward to increased returns in the sales ring in future, however as the genetic results were so good I expect most of his progeny will be retained by their breeders to race.
Ritchie Fiddes - Owner of Albaasil & Moor End Stud
With over 55 mares already confirmed for 2017, 10% of which have black type, Albaasil can look forward to a significant increase in quality and quantity of mares going forward
