AL MUFTI

ROBERTO - LASSIE DEAR 

South Africa’s leading Turf publication, The Sporting Post, reports that Al Mufti has passed away in his paddock at Ascot Stud on this morning, Thursday March 3, 2011, just six days short of his 26th birthday. He was, beyond doubt, South Africa’s most influential sire of the last two decades.

Al Mufti had been retired from commercial stud duties in 2007, following fertility issues and his last full crop are current 3-year-olds and include 2011 Grade 1 Cape Derby winner, Top Seller. From his last efforts at stud, in 2007, came ten foals born in 2008 - now two-year-olds.

A son of Roberto, Al Mufti is out of Lassie Dear and is half brother to Weekend Surprise, the dam of Champion US sire A.P. Indy.

Champion sire of South Africa in 2002, Al Mufti has sired Champions of both sexes. Today, he’s a successful sire-of-sires, and influential sire of broodmares.
