Allan Bloodlines announces that Epsom and Irish Derby winner SHAHRASTANI (USA) (chestnut 1983 Nijinsky – Shademah by Thatch) was put down yesterday at Walton Fields Stud in Leicestershire as a result of accumulating infirmities of age.

After winning the Mecca-Dante (Gr.2), SHAHRASTANI won the 1986 Ever-Ready Derby Gr.1 at Epsom for HH The Aga Khan, Michael Stoute and Walter Swinburn timing his run for home perfectly to hold off the late challenge of DANCING BRAVE. Considered by some to have been lucky because of the ride on DANCING BRAVE, SHAHRASTANI was nevertheless the Derby Winner and went on to win the Budweiser Irish Derby by a crushing 8 lengths. He started favoured to defeat DANCING BRAVE again in the King George but was off colour. DANCING BRAVE established himself as one of the greatest post war racehorses at Ascot and in one of the best of all horse races, the 1986 Arc in which SHAHRASTANI finished a valiant 4th in amongst BERING, TRYPTICH, SHARDARI, ACATENANGO and SAINT ESTEPHE.

Syndicated at 3 to Kentucky, SHAHRASTANI was only modestly successful, faring better when standing in Ireland and siring some of his 13 black type winners. Sold to Japan in the mid 90s, he was repatriated after a Hokkaido visit by David Allan with the help of Kerr & Co’s Bert Kerr. In a partnership between Allan and Islanmore Stud, SHAHRASTANI covered over 200 mares in Co. Limerick in three seasons, mostly National Hunt where he had considerable success with Aga Khan breds moved on for jumping.

Transferred to cover in England, SHAHRASTANI became a much-loved talisman for Allan and for Walton Fields where he has lived since retiring a few years ago, popping up as a broodmare sire including Gr.1 winners ALAMSHAR adn CARADAK. “He was a kind horse but easily wound up needing expert handling,” commented Allan. “Wayne Hutchinson has been brilliant with him at work and in retirement and it has been such a pleasure to have been associated for fourteen years with this special racehorse”.
