From the list of owners named above, I can remember Sheikh Mohammed having horses with Luca Cumani and those included:Barathea - winning the Breeders' Cup Mile, Irish 2000gns and Queen Anne at Royal Ascot,Ensconse - the Irish 1000gns, Inner City the Mill Reef Stakes at Newmarket, Red Slippers - the Sun Chariot at Newmarket, Shamshir - the Gr1 Fillies Mile at Ascot, Shaima - the Long Island Handicap at Belmont in '91, worth around £40k to the winner 25 years ago,Saxon Maid - the November Handicap at Donny, Fred Archer at Newmarket and the Silver Cup at York,Tatami - the Horris Hill at Newbury, Plus for Lord Weinstock he had a few, the best probably being Bonny Scot who won the Zetland as a 2YO, then the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood and the Great Voltigeur at York at 3. I don't remember Cumani ever having any for the likes of Khalid Abdullah or Hamdan Al Maktoum though.
Bairn I believe was Sheikh Mohammed Cumani horse that finished 2nd to Shadeed in 2000 Guineas in mid 80's, Carson rode it, Piggot was on Shadeed....another Sheik Mo horse that Cumani had was much touted for a Derby in mid 80's Pirate Army but then it went wrong. Sheikh Ahmed also had horses with Cumani as Keefah ran well in a Derby in the late 80's.
