English champion Elnadim will be headed to Sheikh Hamdan's Derrinstown Stud in County Kildare in Ireland following current stallion duty at Westbury Stud in New Zealand. A son of Danzig, Elnadim was produced from the Exclusive Native mare Elle Seule, who is one of nine stakes winners produced from Fall Aspen. Seven-year-old Elnadim entered stud this year at Sheikh Hamdan's Shadwell Farm near Lexington for a fee of $15,000. His Irish fee will be announced at a later date.
Shadwell also announced a rise in the fee for Bahri, whose son, Sakhee, won the Oct. 7 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Lucien Barriere (Fr-I). Bahri's fee will rise from $25,000 to $40,000. An English champion, 9-year-old Bahri (Riverman--Wasnah, by Nijinsky II) holds court at Shadwell's Lexington nursery.
