Burwaaz covered a small book of mares at Hedgeholme Stud and had just 14 foals from his first season. He was a talented sprinter whose best form came as a two-year-old, the age at which Timeform rated him 108.
He is by the sire of Group 1 sires Excelebration and Helmet and he is out of the pattern-placed juvenile sprint stakes winner Nidhaal (by Observatory). She was the best of five winners out of her dam, and that granddaughter of Woodman (by Mr Prospector) is, in turn, out of an unraced half-sister to three horses of particular note.
Assert (by Be My Guest) won the Group 1 Irish Derby, Group 1 Benson & Hedges Gold Cup (now Juddmonte International Stakes), Group 1 Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby), and Group 1 Joe McGrath Memorial Stakes.
His half-brother Bikala (by Kalamoun) also won the Group 1 Prix du Jockey Club, he got a second top-level success in the Group 1 Prix Ganay, and the races in which he was placed included the Group 1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
That pair disappointed at stud but their half-sister Eurobird (by Ela-Mana-Mou) came up with two listed race winners and she is the grandam of the Grade 2 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf winner Pounced (by Rahy), the Allevamento di Besnate stallion whose progeny include the classic-placed Italian Group 2 scorer Full Drago.
Some of his first crop are inbred to Danehill and/or to Danzig (by Northern Dancer). It seems likely that a few useful handicappers may be the best that can be expected from him.
