First foal for Oasis Dream son Naaqoos

THE first foal by Naaqoos - and thus the first paternal grandson of Oasis Dream - has been born at the Haras du Quesnay in Normandy.

The new arrival, a chestnut filly, is the second produce of the winning Danehill Dancer mare Ourika, a half-sister to last year's Listed-placed filly Katerini.

Naaqoos, a €280,000 yearling buy, won the Group 1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at two, was a head second to subsequent Prix du Jockey Club winner Le Havre and was third past the post, demoted to sixth in the stewards' room, in the Poule d'Essai des Poulains.

He is owned by Shadwell and stands at the Haras du Mezeray in Normandy at a €6,000 fee.
