Makanah is an extremely good-looking and athletic four-year-old gelding who is in training with Julie Camacho in Malton, North Yorkshire. He cost £58,000 as a yearling and raced three times for Hamdan Al Maktoum, before being purchased by Axom at the Doncaster Sales. He ran well on his debut in Axom silks in October 2017 and was given a break before returning in 2018. His first start of the year was his handicap debut, where he came last of four runners, but the form of that race worked out really well. He dropped back to maiden company for his next run at Redcar and gained his first win, a ready success over six furlongs. Since then, he has won a handicap off 75 and continues to run consistently well for his owners. We are unlikely to have seen the best of him and he will hopefully have a fruitful autumn.

Makanah is out of a winning sprint mare and by Mayson, who won the Group 1 July Cup and the Group 3 Palace House Stakes as a four-year-old. Mayson has enjoyed a good start to his career at stud, siring more Stakes horses than any other first season sire in 2016.

Flat (turf) rating: 80
Note: On 22 January 2019, there were 8,821 (flat turf) horses with an official BHA rating, the lowest being 1 and the highest 130. The median average is currently 68.

“Makanah has done nothing but please us since his arrival here at Star Cottage. He is extremely straightforward and his work has been smooth and impressive. We are very excited to be training this lovely horse.” Julie Camacho
