Asadna, who disappointed when she was well supported in last week’s Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, has been left in the care of Alice Haynes.
Previously trained by George Boughey, Asadna caused a sensation by winning by 12 lengths in a novice round from Ripon in May, but could not follow that when he was only ninth at Coventry, beaten by six lengths by River Tiber.
Owner Sheikh Abdullah Almalek Alsabah subsequently decided to send colt Mehmas to Haynes, who had notable juvenile success with Lady Hollywood last season and sent 26 winners so far in 2023.
She said: “I’m very lucky, it’s nice to have a horse that seems to have so much potential.
“It’s great to get the call. Obviously it’s not very nice for George and the coaches like to stick together, but he was going to another yard and it’s great for the team that he join us.
“It’s a bit too early to say what we might do, we’ll just let him settle in the yard and see from there.”
Haynes also confirmed Danger Alert’s transfer from Boughey court, with the three-year-old being removed from the Palace of Holyroodhouse Stakes on veterinary advice at Ascot on Friday.
The three-time winner may not be in Haynes’ custody for too long, as he is listed for Tattersalls sales next month.
She added: “We also have Danger Alert which is listed for the July sale but will run before then.”
