A son of the Group 1-winning miler and leading sire Cape Cross (by Green Desert), whose stallion sons feature Sea The Stars, Moohaajim was a leading sprint juvenile who finished third to Olympic Glory in the Group 3 Greenham Stakes first out at three and was not seen out again after finishing down the field behind Dawn Approach in the Group 1 2000 Guineas.
Timeform rated him 116p at two after he won the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes and had been beaten by just a neck when runner-up to Reckless Abandon in the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes, his grandam won the Group 3 C L Weld Park Stakes at that age.
He covered 62 mares in his first season at Rathbarry Stud and his first foals made up to €56,000.
In addition to that pattern success, Theoretically (by Theatrical) was placed in both the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks and Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup, and she is the dam of the US Grade 3 scorer Niagara Causeway (by Giant's Causeway).
The third dam of Moohaajim is an unraced mare called Aspern (by Riverman), her five blacktype progeny also included the Group 1 Prix Lupin winner and Group 1 Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby) third Cudas (by Seattle Song), and her descendants include the Argentine-bred Grade 1 scorer Pataques (by Catcher In The Rye) and a couple of Brazilian Grade 2 winners.
Her half-brother Vilagro (by Targowice) was a big winner in Belgium, but her half-sister Princess Kathy (by Luthier) is more notable even though she was only stakes placed. That is because she became the dam of the dual Group 2 Prix de l'Opera winner Athyka (by Secretariat) and she is the grandam of both the classic-placed Grade 1 scorer Atticus (by Nureyev) and of Group 1 Premio Lydia Tesio winner Dubai Surprise (by King's Best).
There are various other blacktype horses to be found within these first four generations of the pedigree, but nothing that gives us any additional clues as to how Moohaajim might fare as a stallion. He looks a likely candidate to get winners at all ages, mostly sprinters and milers.
MOOHAAJIM (IRE) – b.2010 – Cape Cross – Thiella, 2 wins inc Mill Reef Stakes (Gr2), 2nd Middle Park Stakes (Gr1), 3rd Greenham Stakes (Gr3). Sire in Ireland. First foals in 2016.

Jet Away is among the best bred horses at stud, but this Timeform 118-rated son of Cape Cross (by Green Desert) is standing as a National Hunt stallion and so will have few representatives appearing on the track over the next few years.
He stands at Arctic Tack Stud in Co Wexford, he covered 180 mares in his first season and his first foals made up to €26,000.
He is by the sire of Sea The Stars and Golden Horn, his unraced dam, Kalima (by Kahyasi), is an unraced full-sister sister to two stakes winners, and that pair are Arrive and the phenomenal Hasili.
Arrive won the Listed Bahrain Trophy and she is the dam of Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes winner Promising Lead (by Danehill). She is also responsible for the Grade 1-placed dual pattern scorer Visit (by Oasis Dream) and she is the grandam of the Group 3 Autumn Stakes winner Commemorative (by Zamindar).
Hasili, of course, is not only the dam of the Group/Grade 1 stars Banks Hill (by Danehill), Cacique (by Danehill), Champs Elysees (by Danehill), Heat Haze (by Green Desert) and Intercontinental (by Danehill), but also of the Group 1-placed pattern scorer Deluxe (by Storm Cat) and of the multiple Group 1-placed Group 2 miler Dansili (by Danehill). The latter is one of the best sires around and his early stallion sons having been doing well.
Cacique has sired Group 1 winners, Champs Elysees has sired pattern winners, and Banks Hill is the dam of the Breeders' Cup-placed Group 1 star Romantica (by Galileo) and of the Group 2-placed multiple stakes winner Ideal World (by Kingmambo). That horse has made a promising start to his stallion career in South Africa where his progeny include the multiple Grade 1 heroine Smart Call.
Others produced from siblings of Kalima include the Grade 1 star and classic sire Leroidesanimaux (by Candy Stripes). Kerali (by High Line), the winning grandam of Jet Away, was out of the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes winner Sookera (by Roberto), which made her a half-sister to the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes scorer So Factual (by Known Fact).
There are many others of note within the branches of these first three generations of the pedigree. Jet Away is an exceptionally well-bred horse and this 10-furlong Group 3 scorer is one of the most interesting stallions to retire directly to a National Hunt stud in recent years.
JET AWAY (GB) – b.2007 – Cape Cross – Kalima, 8 wins inc Easter Cup (Gr3), Festival Stakes (L), 2nd Rose of Lancaster Stakes (Gr3), Tapster Stakes (L), 3rd Pontefract Castle Stakes (L). Sire in Ireland. First foals in 2016.
