Al Hareb - Headford Lass
FOALED:  1990
A giant horse, the ill-fated Hareeba was one of the fastest sprinters in Australia in the 1990s. He broke down during a final comeback attempt, and although connections tried vainly to save him, he was humanely destroyed. Hareeba won the Group 1 Southcorp Packaging Stakes, and in an amazing display of sheer speed and power, the Group 1 Australian Stakes down the straight (where he excelled) at Flemington. A somewhat enigmatic horse, he was then unplaced in the Lightning Stakes behind Mahogany, before bouncing back to defeat the same horse in the Stanley Wootten Stakes. He won the George Ryder Stakes in Sydney, but was subsequently disqualified after returning a positive swab. A massively heavy horse, he then began to experience leg troubles, and had a few chequered preparations before his final breakdown. He was a great favourite of the crowds, and the now retired jockey Simon Marshall.
