Hello Youmzain aims for third Group One

Cambridge Stud principals Brendan and Jo Lindsay will be glued to their television screen when Hello Youmzain contests the Gr.1 July Cup (1200m) at Newmarket this weekend.

The couple own the entire in partnership with Haras d’Etreham.

The Kevin Ryan-trained four-year-old gave them one of their biggest moments in racing when he won the Gr.1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (1200m) at Royal Ascot last month.

It was his second victory at elite-level after previously winning the Gr.1 Haydock Sprint Cup (1200m).

The Lindsays are hoping he can add a third Group One to his name this weekend ahead of entering stud duties at their Cambridge farm next year.

“He will go to France first when he goes to stud and he will probably be here in July or August next year,” Brendan Lindsay said.

Cambridge Stud purchased Hello Youmzain last spring with Haras d’Etreham, a partnership that are also the principal owners of multiple Group One winner Almanzor, who divides his time between the Normandy farm and Cambridge.

Hello Youmzain is among four Group One winners for Danehill sire Kodiac, a three-quarter brother to Invincible Spirit, along with middle-distance star Best Solution and Cheveley Park Stakes heroines Fairyland and Tiggy Wiggy.

He is a half-brother to Group Two winner and Group One-placed Royal Youmzain, who was the champion two-year-old colt in Italy and champion three-year-old in Germany.

Out of the Shamardal mare Sparsha, this dam has left four named foals, all of whom are black-type performers, including the Listed winner Zuhoor Baynoona (by Elnadim), while it is also the family of Australian Group Two winner Shania Dane and star Hong Kong sprinter Scintillation.
