Makfi is out of the winner of the Group 1 National Stakes at 2 and the Irish 2,000 Guineas and Prix Jacques Le Marois at 3 Dabawi. Makfi's dam, the unraced Green Desert mare Dhelaal, is a half-sister to dual highweight Alhaarth (Unfuwain).
On May 1, Makfi achieved classic success in the 2,000 Guineas Stakes, only his third career start as he inhaled game runner-up Dick Turpin in the closing strides. Leading up to the classic he won the Prix Djebel as prep. Makfi pulling away late in the piece almost mirrored his Djebel success and in the same race included undefeated last years European Champion Two year old colt.
