AL-ADIYAT

Editor’s Note ...

W

OW – 500 issues – well done Team Al Adiyat and all that have sailed in her! I have been lucky enough to be involved in this informative weekly, predominantly horse racing, publication for virtually 10 years and boy, have we witnessed some change! The obvious start point is the change of office – by my limited geographical skills what used to be the home of Al Adiyat is now the site of Burj Khalifa, similarly famous as Al Adiyat. And of course, there is the actual racing - the smooth transition from the understated and practical Nad Al Sheba to the iconic Meydan - being a prime example. And of course, the introduction of the Dubai World Cup (neé International) Carnival which has truly put UAE racing on the world map. The loss of Ghantoot was sad - an amazing turf surface which was vastly under used and had the potential to be a great racecourse. The increase in quality at both Abu Dhabi and Jebel Ali has been marked both now stage Group 3 Thoroughbred contests as their racing grows in esteem. Deservedly so. And then we have Al Adiyat. Luckily the paper has forged excellent relations with the local racing fraternity who have been forever helpful relaying the latest news and views. Weekly detailed previews and reviews hopefully keep the readers well informed, alongside the insightful (we hope) and entertaining (ditto) columnists. Be it the ‘veterans’ of Al Adiyat, Howard Wright and Derek Thompson, or the ‘new kids on the blocks’, Tom Jennings, Nick Godfrey, Pat Cummings, John Berry and regular contributors Tim Aroon, Brett Williams, Harry Tregoning and the mysterious Lucky Name, hopefully there is

something to appeal to all tastes. The bloodstock coverage has increased dramatically in recent years, thanks to the exhaustive efforts of Beverley Townsend, dovetailing with the excellent pedigree insight offered by Alastair Nicolson. We thank them all and, of course, their

numerous predecessors of whom there have been many. And of course, we have to thank our advertisers, without whom I might not get paid and last, but by no means least, you, our loyal and much appreciated readers. Here is to another 500 issues…

Marnane's Memories - previous Al Adiyat editor Ed Marnane reflects on his Al Adiyat years

H

AVING been employed by Al Adiyat for a decade I was proud with my long association with the paper and have many happy memories, and delighted it has reached an important milestone with their 500th issue. When I started working for Al Adiyat in 2000, racing in the UAE was quite different in those days. Based at Central Military Command, now the site of Old Town Dubai and home to the Burj Khalifa, Al Adiyat played an important role in the promotion of racing and was popular with both racing professionals and race fans. Racing was staged at five tracks — Abu Dhabi, Nad Al Sheba, Jebel Ali, Ghantoot and Sharjah — and the season ended in April. In 2009 Nad Al Sheba, home of the Dubai World Cup, closed to be replaced by the iconic Meydan in 2010, while seven years earlier Ghantoot shut their doors. Nad Al Sheba, Dubai’s premier track,

provided many wonderful memories, most notably Dubai Millennium’s victory in the 2000 Dubai World Cup. Ridden by Frankie Dettori, Dubai Millennium produced a remarkable performance when demolishing his opponents, making all the running in similar fashion to Frankel’s romp in the 2000 Guineas in 2011 at Newmarket. It was stunning effort from the Saeed bin Suroor-trained colt and he returned to ecstatic scenes in the paddock on a hot night. Remarkably Dubai Millennium eclipsed his own track record, confirming his status as one of the great horses in history. Sadly he was to succumb to grass sickness the following year, a blow for all his connections. Thankfully through his son, the exciting young sire Dubawi his legacy continues. In my early years with Al Adiyat, Dubai World Cup night was the only opportunity racegoers in the Emirates

could witness top-class international racing during the season. The meeting never failed to excite and its popularity grew and grew, leading to the creation of the Dubai Carnival. The Dubai World Cup fixture became a major social event and was a major event of the UAE sports calendar. It was fitting that Mike de Kock, the most successful international trainer in the UAE, saddled the first overseas winner of the inaugural Dubai Carnival in 2004, which since then has attracted runners from all corners of the globe. Al Adiyat always took pride in informing their readers with the latest news, both locally and internationally, providing in-depth previews and reports of the local racing. The paper has employed several high profile overseas writers and their contribution has added to the reader’s enjoyment.

Bennett and O'Gorman honoured at Godolphin awards J

OCK Bennett, assistant trainer to Mark Johnston, was named Employee of the Year and winner of the Dedication to Racing Award at the Godolphin Stud & Stable Staff Awards on March 4. He said after the Dedication to Racing Award: "I am flabbergasted. It is just a pleasure to be in the room with some of the people here today. "I started off at 15 and am where I am now. I have just loved it - working for two different types of trainers (Bill Watts and Mark Johnston) who are a complete contrast. "I get quite a lot of recognition but I have a great team back at home helping me and without them I would not be able to do my job." After his Employee of the Year Award and winning £15,000 for himself and £15,000 for his colleagues, he commented: "This is not about the money. I am speechless and I am not usually speechless. "Like I said before, it is a privilege to be in this room with so many people who have been nominated. "For the judges to pick me, this is a big, big honour. I have met the youngsters (for the David Nicholson Newcomer Award) this weekend and I just think it is fantastic that we are still getting good staff in the game and we need them for the future. Well done to them but also well done to everybody who was nominated. "I would just like to say thank you to Mark and Deirdre Johnston for nominating me and one big thank you is to my wife Jacqui who has had to put up with a lot. "It completely changed my life going to work for Mark & Deirdre - probably in the old days head lads would not become assistant trainers but Mark gave me the opportunity which I grabbed with both hands because I knew I had more to give. "I am feeling a bit overwhelmed - we all (the nominated people for the Godolphin Stud & Stable Staff Awards) met last night and I felt so sorry that someone had to win it they are great people who I have a lot of respect for." He started in racing at the age of 15 and has only worked for two trainers since then during his 40 years in the sport. He had two rides

as an apprentice without success. "I did not have any academic qualifications but the guy who I did a paper round for in Edinburgh said you are small why don't you try and be a jockey. I wrote away for four jobs and within a week I was working for Bill Watts. "I went for a month's trial. I worked for the guy for 25 years, making my way up to head man, and he still didn't tell me whether I had got the job or not! "Bill retired (in 1997) and obviously I had to find another job and that week in the Racing Post there was an advert for a second head lad's job at Mark Johnston. "The highlights of my career would be Teleprompter with Bill Watts and I was yard manager for Attraction when she won the Irish and English 1000 Guineas - she was a great filly and the first to do that double. "The great standards I was brought up with at Bill Watts helped me adapt to Mark's ways. He is very strong on staff and teamwork. "In racing you work to the horse not the clock. I work until the job is done and I expect staff to do so as well. "It gives me huge satisfaction to work in racing - I can always remember how proud I felt leading up my first winner." Godolphin's Seamus O'Gorman also triumphed, gaining the Rider/Groom Award. The longstanding Godolphin employee, who has been involved in racing for over 30 years, was announced the winner of this prestigious accolade on the afternoon of Monday, March 4 during the Godolphin Stud & Stable Staff Awards held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in London, England. The 45yo was presented with his award by Britain's champion Flat jockey Richard Hughes and Clare Balding. He received a cheque for £10,000, with half of that amount being shared among his colleagues at Saeed bin Suroor's Al Quoz Stables. Seamus O'Gorman, who was one of three finalists in the Rider/Groom

category, started his racing involvement as a boy riding and gaining experience with trainers Pat Flynn and Jim Bolger in Ireland before becoming an apprentice with Ian Balding in Britain. His desire to become a jockey took hold during his time with Pat Flynn, when he rode Virginia Deer, a horse no one wanted at the sales but who turned into a decent 2yo. He rode out his apprentice claim, thanks to successes on horses such as Spinning and Knock Knock, while he enjoyed a tremendous partnership with the Pat Mitchell-trained Tauber, winning 13 times on the sprinter. He travelled to Dubai for the first time in 1994 and linked up with Godolphin two years later when becoming a work rider for trainer Saeed bin Suroor. Race riding was part of his life in Dubai, where his successes included Dubai Honor winning the 2003 Jebel Ali Stakes, and he amassed over 200 winners during his time as a jockey. Seamus O'Gorman has contributed plenty as one of Godolphin's main riders, helping to develop the careers of some of the world's top horses including Daylami, Fantastic Light, Marienbard, Mamool and Dubai Millennium. He played a key role in the preparation of Island Sands ahead of the colt's Classic victory in the 1999 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, UK and was particularly involved with the success of Mastery in the 2010 Hong Kong Vase at Sha Tin. He has travelled around the world to partner Godolphin horses in their final pieces of work ahead of big races, going to Hong Kong, Australia and America among other countries. Simon Crisford, the Godolphin racing manager, commented: "Seamus really deserves this award. He has gone through the full spectrum of a rider's career from making the transition from apprentice to successful jockey and becoming an outstanding work rider.

"His excellent judgement of pace makes him extremely accomplished in leading work. His ability to drop one in, by riding work from behind and getting a horse settled, is testament to his natural skill as a horseman. "Equally adept at both the English and American styles of riding, he has no difficulty finding the right balance and switching between the two, a skill for which he is highly regarded and which is crucial to the role he is required to perform when based in Dubai. "His contribution to the overall performance of the yard involves not only his ability as a rider and the importance that we place on him in setting the pace for all of our fast work but also the positive influence he has on other members of the team. "Although quietly spoken and unassuming in his manner, his continued dedication, professional approach and willingness to simply 'muck in' means he stands out as an exemplary

member of the team. "Always keen to pass on his knowledge and experience to others, Seamus can often be seen offering a tip or advice to the other riders and jockeys. Over the years, this has contributed towards an increase in the high standard and performance of the other members of staff. "He is an extremely reliable employee who is never late, always willing to put in extra time and come in on his day off, if required. "Seamus' contribution to the performance and success of the yard over the years is immeasurable and we consider ourselves very fortunate to be associated with him. "Much of Godolphin's success can be credited to the excellence of our staff and the role that our top work riders perform cannot be overestimated." The two runners-up for the Rider/Groom Award at the 2013 Godolphin Stud & Stable Staff Awards are Paul Burns, travelling head lad for Brian Meehan, and Caroline Hovington, a senior stable lass with Ed Walker. They each received £4,000, with half of that amount being shared among their colleagues.

Monterosso returns

G

ODOLPHIN, as you would expect, are particularly well represented in the Group 1 concluding round of the Al Maktoum Challenge on Saturday, highlighted by the return to action of 2012 Dubai World Cup winner Monterosso. His trainer, Mahmood Al Zarooni, explained: “This has always been the plan, to follow the same path as the last two years with a run on Super Saturday and then the World Cup. He was fourth in this race last year, before winning the World Cup, having won at this meeting on turf in 2011 before a third in the World Cup. “He was well beaten in the Eclipse after which this has been the plan all along – no horse has won two Dubai World Cups and we hope he is the one to rectify that thus his campaign has been based around these two races.” The trainer also saddles Saint Baudolino, fourth in the Group 2

EAMUS O’Gorman who has been with Godolphin since 1996 was a very fitting winner of the rider/groom section at this year’s Darley Stud and Stable Staff Awards at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in London on Monday. O’Gorman who has spent over 30 years in racing and ridden over 200 winners himself has been associated with such top horses as Daylami, Fantastic Light, Marienbard, Mamoool and of course Dubai Millennium. He is a regular part of the team that travels with horses for the major races in Australia, America and Hong Kong but it is his ability as an outstanding work rider that makes him stand out and that’s why he won! The awards that carry £120,000 in prize money were hosted by TV’s Clare Balding and the prizes themselves were presented by Richard Hughes, the Champion Flat Jockey in the UK, who like Balding had just flown in from Dubai. For me, these are the best awards in racing for they go to the people who work long hours sometimes for little reward and so a prize of £5,000 for themselves and another £5,000 for the stable goes down very well indeed. The awards were inaugurated nine years ago by Brough Scott and he presented Shane Featherstonehaugh with a special award for his services to Frankel. Featherstonehaugh was the man who rode Frankel out every day and according to his trainer Sir Henry Cecil, was the ‘other trainer’ of the world’s greatest racehorse!

middle round of the Al Maktoum Challenge on his first start for the trainer. That race was won by Hunter’s Light, also owned by Godolphin but trained by Saeed bin Suroor who has won this trial with subsequent Dubai World Cup winners Dubai Millennium, Street

Cry and Electrocutionist in the past. Bin Suroor said: “He seems to be improving and won well last time but this is a much better race so we will find out just how much he has progressed. We are looking forward to running him in the hope he proves a Dubai World Cup prospect.”

O’Gorman a fitting winner Robin Trevor Jones who for the last 15 years has been travelling head lad to Ed Dunlop was a very popular winner of the High Achiever Award. Robin has travelled horses like Red Cadeaux, Snow Fairy and Ouija Board to some of the biggest races in the world including Europe, Dubai, America, Hong Kong and Japan and his special guest at the awards ceremony was his very proud mum! But the biggest cheer of the day went to Mark Johnston’s assistant trainer Brian ‘Jock‘ Bennett who won both the Dedication to Racing Award and the big award the Darley Stud and Stable Staff Employee of the Year. “I’m not often lost for words but I am now,” said the popular Scot who started out in life looking after the great Teleprompter at Bill Watts’ Stable in North Yorkshire. When Watts retired, he teamed up with Mark Johnston and since then they have turned out well over 1,000 winners! The Cheltenham Festival is now just about upon us and from next Tuesday over 50,000 racegoers will be flocking to the track every day for the world championships of National Hunt racing. The Champion Hurdle looks wide open but it brings together three former champions in Binocular, Hurricane Fly and last year’s winner Rock On Ruby who is hoping to give rookie Harry Fry a massive win in his first season as a trainer. On Wednesday, all eyes will be on Sprinter Sacre, the Frankel of

jump racing in the Queen Mother Champion Chase and this horse is so exciting to watch as he attempts to outjump and outgallop his rivals over two miles. On Thursday, with the winner for the past four years Big Bucks out with injury, there is a feeling that Reve De Sivola - ‘my ride of the week’ - according to Richard

Johnson could be the one to follow in those illustrious hoofprints. And then on Friday it’s the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup the Blue Riband of steeplechasing - and with no Kauto Star or Denman who are now retired it could be their old rival Long Run who comes home in front. It’s going to be a busy and very

Due to unfortunate circumstances, Anastacia has regrettably been forced to postpone her global tour (of US and Europe) including her special appearance at Dubai World Cup. The full announcement from her agency is below.

Meydan and the organisers of the Dubai World Cup wish Anastacia the best of health and a safe recovery, and we hope to welcome her back to Dubai soon. OFFICIAL RELEASE: US pop singer Anastacia has sadly been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time after having successfully survived her 2003 battle with the disease. Consequently she has been forced to cancel all performances, tours and any travel from now until further notice. Anastacia was excited about her forthcoming European tour which was due to start on April 6th in London. "I feel so awful to be letting down all my

exciting week but before that I am off to the latest round in the Sheikh Mansour Global Arabian Challenge and this weekend we are in Houston, Texas! With temperatures forecast for nearly 30 degrees, it’s going to be a lot warmer than it was for the last round in the ski resort of San Moritz!

amazing fans who were looking forward to 'It's A Man's World Tour'. It just breaks my heart to disappoint them" she said. Anastacia will continue the writing and recording of her new album despite her diagnosis and hopes to schedule a new tour as soon as possible. Now more than ever, she is determined to live by her motto 'Don't ever let cancer get the best of you!' A born survivor, Anastacia has one goal and that is to make a full recovery with the support of her family, friends and everyone around her. Please respect her need for privacy during such a trying time.

EBEL Ali Racecourse welcomes horsemen and spectators back for the 10th meeting of the 2012/13 season on Friday in this, their 21st season of racing. It is the Al Sufouh meeting with a good card and a great atmosphere guaranteed. The track, owned by HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is home to trainer Dhruba Selvaratnam, who trains the Sheikh’s horses on the Jebel Ali course and looks to have a strong hand in five of the races. Kessraa, in the sixth and final race, looks a particularly attractive choice to Pick Six players who will be chasing competition prize money of Dh67,800. There are also prize draws to win 130 prizes during an entertaining day. On Tuesday, officials at Jebel Ali welcomed sponsors, who have put up prize money worth an impressive Dh875,000, and the media to the Dubai track. Al Habtoor Motors, Arabian Scandinavian Insurance Company, Shadwell, Commercial Bank of Dubai, Bemco Dubai and E Sports are all sponsoring races. The highlight of the six race card is the third race, the Group 3 Jebel

Russian Rock Bids For More Jebel Ali Glory Ali Sprint which is over 1000m on the course’s renowned dirt track and is sponsored by Shadwell. Russian Rock has been the dominant horse in this class this year and bids to give his owner victory in all the Stakes races at Jebel Ali this season. HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum has a habit of doing well in races his breeding operation sponsors and Kanaf represents him here.

Mr Rayan Lopez of the sponsoring Bemco Group commented: “We wish all the participants and the spectators well on Friday and we look forward to joining you then.” Mrs Roma Andrews of Al Habtoor motors said: “I personally feel very privileged to be associated with this prestigious event.” Al Habtoor have kindly donated a Mitsubishi Lancer 1.6 model 2013 which will be raffled off at the end of the sixth

race with coupons costing just Dh10. There is also an iPad available to the winner of the child’s drawing competition. A big thank you must also go to the Dubai International Arabian Horse Championship who have sponsored the Best Turned Out competition for each race with a prize of a very generous Dh2,000 to the yard or groom of the winners of the Jebel Ali Sprint and a generous Dh1,000 to the best turned

out winners of the other races. The course certainly welcomes and looks after its spectators, providing buses from the car parks to the racecourse itself and a free raffle with some 130 valuable gifts as prizes drawn throughout the day. The course also provides family areas for picnics and play areas for children. It is always a meeting to look forward to. Gates open at 10.00 am and the first race is scheduled for 2.15pm.

Lasix to be used at Breeders' Cup

T

HE Breeders' Cup has gone back on a pledge to ban Lasix altogether for this year's event at Santa Anita, when the anti-bleeding medication will again be prohibited for only the 2yo contests. In addition, the $500,000 Juvenile Sprint has been axed from the two day programme, reducing the total number of Breeders' Cup races to 14. In a contentious move, Breeders' Cup organisers had planned to expand a ban on raceday use of furosemide, better known by its former trade name Lasix, across the entire 2013 programme. But on Friday, board members voted

merely to maintain the status quo and uphold the ban in the four juvenile contests. Pledging funding assistance, the Breeders' Cup Board also called for an industry wide independent study of the causes, effects and potential alternative methods of reducing the occurrence of exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH) in racehorses. Breeders' Cup chairman Tom Ludt said: "We recognise that there has been great divisiveness in our industry over medication rules, but joining together in the common goal of independent scientific research of

the effects of raceday medications, coupled with industry pursuit of uniform rules, will move us toward eliminating such divisions. "Our board feels this measure, keeping the policy in place for the juvenile races and maintaining the 2012 policy on the remaining races, is the most practical course of action at this time." The USA is the only major racing juristiction that permits the use of raceday medication. In September last year, Breeders' Cup director of racing Josh Christian said: "We consider ourselves an international event, not an American event - and

when you're an international event you have to adhere to international standards. "A lot of my friends are vets and it's not for me to speak about the issue of right and wrong but this is what the rest of the world is doing and we are an international event." The 6f Juvenile Sprint has been dropped from the programme after

just two years. "The number of starters and overall quality did not meet the standards expected for the championships," said Cup president Craig Fravel. "We also believe that the Juvenile Sprint had a negative impact on field sizes for both the Breeders' Cup Juvenile and Juvenile Fillies."

Tait quits over Lasix issue

O

LIVER TAIT, Darley's chief operating officer, has resigned from the Breeders' Cup board due to the organisation's policy on Lasix. On March 1, members on the board voted to only maintain the current practice of banning the anti-bleeding medication in the four juvenile races, going back on a pledge to extend the ban across the whole meeting. As a consequence, Tait resigned on Sunday, and issued a press release which said: "The Breeders'

Cup has reversed its previously agreed and stated position that the 2013 Breeders' Cup World Championships will be conducted without Lasix. "As a consequence I have resigned from the board of the Breeders' Cup." Tait also represented the views of Darley boss Sheikh Mohammed in the press release, as he added: "Sheikh Mohammed, Darley's principal, has been one of the biggest players in American racing for the last 30 years. His vision for

the sport in America is a future where racing is enjoyed and admired by a new generation of participants and enthusiasts. A true world championship, to be enjoyed and admired by all, needs to be medication free." Breeders' Cup chairman Tom Ludt issued a press release on Sunday thanking Tait for his work on the board. He said: "We greatly value his work on behalf of Darley and their longtime support and enthusiastic participation in the Breeders' Cup programme."

French Fifteen pleases and could be Dubai bound

RENCH Fifteen, runner-up in last year's 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, delighted connections with a fine second in a 1600m conditions race at Chantilly last Saturday on his first start since July. However, he had no answer to the powerful finishing burst of the Jean-Claude Rouget-trained Silas Marner, who strode to an easy victory under Jean-Bernard Eyquem in this trial race for the Dubai Duty Free. That trip isn't on the agenda for the winner but connections will look at progressing to Group company for the 6yo son of Muhtathir. "We've always thought he was a good horse capable of winning a Group race but, earlier in his

career, he was hampered a great deal by problems with his feet," said Eyquem. "He's got better with age and I didn't even need to give him a crack today." French Fifteen had no luck in two visits to Chantilly last season after chasing home Camelot at Newmarket. The Nicolas Clement-trained colt was subjected to a torrid passage in the Prix du Jockey before suffering a leg injury when sent off favourite for the Prix Jean Prat. "It was a good comeback after eight months out, given he was giving weight to the winner, himself obviously a very smart horse," said Clement. "We'll see how he comes out of this and talk to the owner about

Dubai. He was a little rusty today but finished off very well. In short, I'm very pleased with him." On the same card, Dubai World Cup winning jockey Mirco Demuro made all on Don Bosco in a 1900m conditions race, to the delight of his veteran trainer David Smaga and the horse's owner, acting legend Omar Sharif. Demuro secured the lead from the start and after setting sail for home inside the two furlong pole was untroubled in beating outsider Simba by three lengths, with last season's winner Zazou a further length away in third. "This horse keeps improving and I he hasn't reached his limits," said Smaga, who will target him at the Group 3 Prix Exbury at Saint Cloud.

KEED Mofeed has attracted a weight of attention since arriving in Hong Kong at the start of the season and the Richard Gibsontrained colt opened his local account in timely and impressive fashion last Saturday with the BMW Hong Kong Derby (2000m) only two weeks away. Jockey Douglas Whyte saluted the Dubawi 4yo as he passed the winning post well clear of his field in the Class 2 Taipa Handicap over 1800m. The colt had unleashed a decisive turn of foot to put the race beyond doubt and enhance his claims for the HK$16 million final leg of the Hong Kong Four-Year-

Akeed opens Hong Kong account Old Series on 17 March. “The number one satisfaction with Akeed Mofeed is having him in Hong Kong because he’s going to be a fantastic recruit to Hong Kong racing and I think he’s a Group 1 standard horse,” said Gibson of last season’s Group 1 Irish Derby fourth, who was scoring at the third attempt in Hong Kong. “Whether he’s going to be good enough we’ll see in the Derby. The satisfying point is he will win Group 1 races here, which is wonderful. I think he’s got a lot of talent, a lot of ability and class.

N the absence of top 3yo All Too Hard, scratched with an elevated temperature, Ferlax claimed the Group 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington on Saturday with Stephen Baster aboard for trainer Jim Conlan in the 1m feature. "It's a shame for the All Too Hard team that they couldn't run," Conlan said. "But we did and I think we have a very good, very exciting horse." All Too Hard came out of the Guineas on race morning after he was found to have a slight cold, leaving the race wide open to a

“Douglas rode a good race on him today and it was a very good prep race for two weeks time. I thought the horse had improved physically – I thought he looked better today in the paddock and I was really pleased by his attitude today. “He was relaxed and settled well throughout the race and quickened well. “I’m not certain that 2000m is going to be his best distance but I think he’s got the class to do it. Every time he runs we find out more about the horse.”

OLAR Great made it five wins from as many starts this season to ensure a home victory in the Group 3 (local) Hong Kong Macau Trophy (Handicap) last Saturday, when Hong Kong Derby entrant Happy Era caught the eye in luckless defeat. Hong Kong has now won 8 of the 10 renewals of the race, which is the first of two legs in the annual inter-port challenge with nearby Macau. The second leg, the Macau Hong Kong Trophy, is at Taipa Racecourse Macau on Sunday, 21 April. It was a Macau raider, Absolutely Win, who led the field off the home turn and kicked for home but Douglas Whyte atop Solar Great had the Gary Moore-trained runner well within

his sights as the field fanned out. His progressive mount accelerated powerfully to hit the front halfway down the stretch and narrowly held the strong late thrust of runner-up Happy Era by a neck. “It’s pretty surreal to win, it’s always tough to win five in a row and especially in Hong Kong it’s a lot harder to do. Getting to this level, obviously the hurdles get higher every time so I’m pretty proud of what the horse has done,” said trainer David Hall of the 5yo who was notching his first Group race win. “After his last win Brett (Prebble) said he was ready for 1400m, he’s more relaxed now and he’s in the zone – we thought it was the right distance for him and once you get up to this sort of rating the programme dictates to

Not hard for Ferlax field of what appeared to be second-tier 3yos. Whether that proves to be the case remains to be seen, but 16-1 shot Ferlax got what he deserved in his first attempt in town, making it four wins from as many starts with his half length defeat of the filly You're So Good. For Conlan the victory came after seven years without a Group 1 success, his previous winner at the top level being Above Deck in the 2006 Doomben Cup.

you a little bit. I just thought the lighter weight was the right way to go and these horses going into Group races with a light weight is normally a very good formula.” The HK$500,000 bonus on offer to any horse that wins both inter-port races in a season looks like going unclaimed as Hall stated: "He won’t be going to Macau.” Happy Era, third in the Group 1 (local) Hong Kong Classic Mile in January, posted a strong run with the Hong Kong Derby (2000m) coming up on 17 March. John Size’s charge raced near the tail and had to wait on his run at the top of the stretch as Solar Great made his winning move. Forced wide across the Sha Tin straight, the 4yo stormed to the wire. Last year’s winner Majestic Falcon was third.

RISTODEMUS, ridden by Anderson Trotman, galloped to glory in last Saturday's ÂŁ63,000 Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup over 1800m at Garrison Savannah. His victory provided owner Sir David Seale with a second successive triumph in the Southern Caribbean's richest and most prestigious contest. The American-bred 4yo Giant's Causeway colt took up the running a furlong and a half from the finish and ran on resolutely to comfortably hold Daga, his only challenger, at bay in the closing stages and win by three-quarters of a length. Meteorite finished third. Seale, president of the Barbados Turf Club, had won last year's running with another US import Dancin David who defied an injury interrupted preparation this time to finish fourth. Victory for the 2-1

Seale secures Barbados feature again favourite gave Trotman a second winning Gold Cup ride. The winning owner, who now has six Gold Cups in his burgeoning trophy cabinet, admitted afterwards that he wanted Dancin David to win again. "He suffered a fractured bone in a front leg last year and was off the course for seven months yet put up a brave show today. Aristodemus is all about class and the best is yet to come for him," he said. Trainer Liz Deane, for who Aristodemus provided a third victory and the first consecutive wins in the race since the late Bill Marshall in 2003, praised her jockey. "Anderson gave him a superb ride and the race went exactly as planned," she said.

Dude on top of his game

G

AME On Dude became only the fourth horse to win the Grade 1 $750,000 Santa Anita Handicap for a second time when making all the running for a dazzling victory at Santa Anita on Saturday.

The warm favourite was sent into an immediate lead under Hall Of Fame jockey Mike Smith and, after opening up a two length lead down the backstretch, he drew right away from his eight rivals to score impressively in the 'Big Cap'.

Carrying top weight, Game On Dude was giving upwards of 3lb to the rest of the field but still managed to record the biggest winning distance in 76 runnings of the race to leave trainer Bob Baffert delighted. He said: "I think this is a race that will stamp him as the great horse that he really is. I was impressed watching him myself as a fan. "I give all the credit to Mike Smith. He really gets along with the horse." Outsider Clubhouse Ride, finished second, a nose in front of 4yo Called To Serve, the third favourite. Ron The Greek, the winner of the 2012 Santa Anita Handicap, finished fourth. "He was incredible today," Smith said. "It's a matter of getting him into his rhythm." Game On Dude won the 2011 Santa Anita Handicap, but did not run in the race last year. Saturday's win means he joins John Henry (1981-82), Milwaukee Brew (2002-03), and Lava Man (2006-07) as a dual winner.

Milestone for McAnally

R

ON MCANALLY joined the exclusive 700 winners club at Santa Anita on Saturday as he won the Grade 1 Kilroe Mile with South American import Suggestive Boy who was ridden by Joe Talamo. McAnally is best known for his work training dual 'Big Cap' winner John Henry, as well as with South American imports such as Bayakoa, Candy Ride, and Paseana so it was apt that he reached his milestone on the 'Big Cap' undercard. Hall of Famer McAnally said: "The longer they're here, the better for these South American horses. He makes you get up in the morning. Good horses are so hard to come by." The third Grade 1 on Santa Anita's card, the $250,000 Las Virgenes Stakes for 3yo fillies

went the way of last year's Champion Juvenile Filly Beholder. Ridden by Garrett Gomez, she scored by almost four lengths in the Las Virgenes for trainer

Richard Mandella. "Everything she did today was great," said Mandella, who trains Beholder for the Spendthrift Farm of B. Wayne Hughes.

Rausing to sponsor on The Curragh

L

ANWADES and Staffordstown Studs have announced a new addition to their sponsorship portfolio, and will support the Curragh's Group 2 Blandford Stakes on Saturday, September 14. The race, named in honour of the great 20th century sire Blandford, is one of Europe's most prestigious and valuable contests for fillies and mares over 1m2f. Owner of Lanwades and Staffordstown Studs Kirsten Rausing said: "We are pleased to be able to support Irish racing in this way. "I have been part of the Irish racing scene for more than 40 years now, both as a breeder [Fame And Glory, Irish Derby winner, Alborada, Pretty Polly Stakes winner, and many others], sales consignor [four Goffs Orby sales toppers to date] and, in a small way, owner. "Naturally, I enjoy not only the tremendous horsemanship and expertise in the Irish bloodstock industry, but also the craic that goes with it!" Previous winners of the race include Chinese White and Chorist, both of whom went on to land the Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes, Irresistible Jewel, and Red Bloom, by former Landwades stalwart Selkirk. In addition to the Blandford Stakes, support will continue for the Staffordstown Stud Stakes, which forms one of the feature races at the Curragh's final meeting of the season, held this year on Sunday, October 13. Curragh Racecourse commercial manager Evan Arkwright said: "We are extremely grateful to Kirsten Rausing for her very

Kirsten Rausing generous support of the racecourse through the sponsorship of two of our most significant races for fillies and mares. "It is very appropriate that a race of the calibre and international profile of the Blandford Stakes should now be associated with one of the leading Thoroughbred breeding establishments in Europe." Lanwades Stud, based in Newmarket, is home to top British sires Sir Percy, winner of the 2006 Epsom Derby, and French Classic hero Aussie Rules. The stud's trio of stallions is completed by the Group 1 winning international performer Archipenko, whose first runner hit the track this season. Staffordstown Stud has reared such top-class performers as dual Champion Stakes winner Alborada, champion German mare Albanova, and Group 1 winner Lady Jane Digby, who recently delivered her second foal, a colt by Galileo, at Lanwades Stud. She returns to the champion this season.

HE condition of Sydney's racetracks is shaping as a major influence on the immediate future of star colt All Too Hard. Co-trainer Wayne Hawkes said All Too Hard was making a good recovery from the cold that forced his withdrawal from Saturday's Australian Guineas at Flemington, a race that was to be his final Melbourne start. While his southern duties are supposedly complete, Hawkes is in no rush to send the colt to Sydney where rain has created heavy racing conditions over the past two weeks. "The biggest key is the very wet weather in Sydney," Hawkes explained. "I'd rather keep him down here in the sunshine than send him up there to those wet tracks." The plan the Hawkes team had in

Double for Dwyer

All Too Hard M to avoid soft place for All Too Hard called for a quick back-up from the Futurity Stakes to the Guineas and then three to four weeks off. But the programme is now back on the drawing board after the weekend. Hawkes said no race is fixed in his or his father John's mind for the return to Sydney, although a couple have been ruled out. But his father's affection for the George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill, a race in which he believes his Champion Racehorse Lonhro turned in his best performance, could influence the team's thinking.

"The Ryder's also over 1500m at weight-for-age ... it looks pretty good for him," Wayne Hawkes said. Among the rejected possibilities is a clash between All Too Hard and his big sister, Black Caviar, in the William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on March 22. Also off the agenda is the All Aged Stakes at Randwick on April 27 - another of Black Caviar's possible targets - with the Doncaster Mile a week earlier also ruled out. While the scratching of All Too Hard robbed the Guineas of its star attraction and created a glitch in the colt's campaign plans, it could have been worse. "I was very thankful it happened Saturday morning and not Saturday afternoon," Hawkes said. "He quite possibly would have won, but he might have been a bit of a mess afterwards. "I'm very glad we discovered it early." All Too Hard looked fresh and keen in his light work at Flemington on Monday and is expected to be back in full swing within days.

Oertel hopes Capital can be main Attraction E RNST Oertel is hoping his three entries for Super Saturday – Capital Attraction, Ganas, and Seraphin Du Paon – will hold their own in the dress rehearsal for the Dubai World Cup meeting. Capital Attraction won twice before finishing third to Treble Jig in the Group 3 Jebel Ali Mile and unplaced in the Group 3 Firebreak Stakes on the Tapeta on the Meydan racecourse. Ganas reeled off three wins before taking third behind Reynaldothewizard and then unplaced behind Godolphin’s Mental in the Group 3 Al Shindagha Sprint, both at Meydan. Seraphin Du Paon, the Purebred Arabian, returns from a close fifth behind Naseem in HH The President’s Cup in Abu Dhabi. “They are all in good shape," Oertel said. “We are very hopeful if they run true to their potentials and with a little bit of luck. “With Ganas last time, we tried to go with them instead of pulling

him back and relaxing, and we killed ourselves. So that was not a reflection of his running. “Capital Attraction ran a good race but was stopped in running, if not he could have finished third or fourth. “Seraphin was bumped last time on the rail. He was stuck on the inside and he has just put on the

brakes. So we live to fight on another day.” The South African is level on 30 winners with Ali Rashid Al Raihe in the UAE trainer’s championship. “We are flying,” he said. “The horses are running well and obviously we are looking to get a few more winners before the curtains come down for the season.”

ARTIN DWYER, involved in a storm at Mahalaxmi racecourse last month when his ride on a beaten favourite sparked angry protests among racegoers, had something to smile about after riding a double at Kolkata last weekend. Dwyer, whose hearing with the Royal Western India Turf Club will convene on March 17 and be attended by a director general of police, scored on Voyager in a 7f race on Saturday and added to that aboard Klipspringer on Sunday. Jimmy Fortune was also among the winners, scoring on Amika and Nefyn on Saturday's card. However, the British-based riders, which also included Richard Hughes, Paul Mulrennan and David Allan, were out of luck in

the weekend's major race which went to Tintinnabulation, who pocketed around £120,000 for connections by winning the Indian Turf Invitation Cup.

Colgan bids adieu with record Derby win J OCKEY Vinny Colgan said farewell to his homeland before taking a job in Australia with a record breaking fifth Group 1 New Zealand Derby win on the favourite Habibi for trainers Donna & Dean Logan at Ellerslie in Auckland last Saturday. Colgan guided Habibi from a potentially tricky position four back on the rails to beat fellow filly Fix, with the front-running Castlzeberg sticking on well for third in the 1m4f feature. It is his fifth New Zealand Derby, but it could be his last as he is moving across the Tasman Sea to join trainer Tony McEvoy in Adelaide in the beginning of April. "I've been sitting on four for a long time. To get that fifth is incredible - I may never get another one," he said. "It's a dream come true. For some reason I don't get nervy but I

really did today, but to pull it off was unbelievable." Colgan has now ridden more New Zealand Derby winners since it shifted to Ellerslie in the early 1970s than anyone else, winning aboard Roysyn, Zonda, Hades and Redoute's Dancer before Saturday. But at 37 he's keen on a new challenge and happily took up an offer from McEvoy earlier this year.

"If he wasn't a big trainer I probably might not have, but he's top gun over there, he's the big dog, he's got plenty of horses, so why not. I'm getting no younger." Fix fought bravely for second after being caught three-wide in the first 800m, while Castlzeberg, bought this week by OTI Racing in Australia, fought bravely after setting a strong pace.

AF Lafeh gives owner Al Naboodah another Wathba Stud Farm Cup win

I

T was another win for owner Khalid Khalifa Al Naboodah when his 7yo grey AF Lafeh won the HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival’s Wathba Stud Farm Cup race at the Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club on Sunday. The HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival’s Wathba Stud Farm Cup was run over the sprint distance of 1000m on the turf here and Gillian Duffield saddled the winner with Sam Hitchcott, who steered AF Lafeh to a handsome win in the 12-horse field. Gabas Noor, Magik Du Paon and Latifa Princess - all previous winners of this race earlier in the season - were in the field but Hitchcott led the Amer son to a one-length win over Umfrey De L’Avant under Royston Ffrench with Gabas Noor (Harry Bentley up) in third. The winning time for the 5-furlong distance was 1:00.88. It was Duffield’s first win as the 13th race of the Wathba Stud Farm Cup was worked off while it was the second successive for owner Al Naboodah after AF Qamoos won last week. It was his fourth win overall in this season’s series. His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan along with Adnan Sultan Al Nuaimi, Director General of the Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club, Ms Lara Sawaya, Director of HH Sheikh M ansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival and Head of Ladies Racing at IFAHR, Saif Al Awani of Al Awani General Enterprises, Stephen Bowey of Invest AD and Mohammed Al Harbi of Emirates Arabian Horse Society attended the prize distribution ceremony.

“After the tremendous success over three days of endurance racing the HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival is back here at the Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club for the Wathba Stud Farm Cup race series,” said Ms Lara Sawaya, Director of HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival and Head of Ladies Racing at IFAHR. “This series gives opportunities to owners of private stables and small st ables to compete against each other and give off their best,” she said. “In organising the HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival, Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority has the preservation of the UAE's cultural heritage and traditions as its driving principal,” Mr. Mubarak Hamad Al Muhairi, Director General, Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) said in a message. “Equestrianism in general, and Purebred Arabian racing in particular, has been a part of the life and spirit of every Emirati and by promoting this sport globally the Festival seeks to enhance the status of Arabian racing,” he added. “Under the directives and support of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs and Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubar ak, Chairwoman of the General Women's Union, Supreme President of the Family Development Foundation (FDF) and Head of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood the Festival has achieved tremendous success and we intend to continue and build on this,” Al Muhairi said.

Harbour keeping good time

T

WEENHILLS Stud newcomer Harbour Watch has got off to a successful start in his new role as a stallion, with his first two mares covered scanned in foal.

One of the in foal mares is Dozy, a daughter of Exceed And Excel who won a Nottingham maiden and the Hilary Needler Trophy at two. Tweenhills Stud manager David Redvers said: "Harbour Watch has taken to his new role with professionalism and efficiency. "He has been supported by all the top breeders and is over subscribed. We are thrilled with that support and the book he has filled. He's a joy to work with." Harbour Watch won all of his three races at two, including easy victories in a Newmarket conditions race and the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood. The 4yo of Acclamation is a half-brother to last year's South African Group 1 winner Europa Point. He is standing at Tweenhills alongside Makfi at a fee of ÂŁ7,500. Both stallions are the property of Qatar Bloodstock.

IRSTEN RAUSING remembered Hernando as "a most charming character, always kind and co-operative" after the linchpin stallion at her Lanwades Stud in Newmarket died from a heart attack recently. Hernando, who was 23, was conceived at Lanwades and was by the stud's Champion Sire Niniski. He was raced by the Niarchos family, who also bred him out of Group 3 winner Whakilyric, making him a half-brother to stakes winners Adnaan, Johann Quatz, Res Judicata and Walter Willy. Francois Boutin trained Hernando to win the Prix Lupin, Prix du Jockey Club and Prix Niel at three. That season he also finished second to Commander In Chief in the Irish Derby. At four he won the Prix GontautBiron and was just touched off by Carnegie when second in the Prix

Hernando joins Selkirk de l'Arc de Triomphe. After Boutin's death, Hernando's career was overseen by John Hammond who saddled the horse to win the Prix Gontaut-Biron again at five. Hernando was retired to stand at Lanwades, where he carved out a successful career, siring the winners of more than 1,230 races and six indiviudal top-flight scorers. He sired two horses who emulated his Prix du Jockey Club success in Holding Court and Sulamani, who in turn sired St Leger hero Mastery. His other Group 1 winners were Casual

Soviet back to serenade Speightstown

T

HE Elite Racing Club's multiple Group 1 winner Soviet Song will be covered by WinStar Farm resident Speightstown in the coming weeks after a near miss with the sire in 2012. The 13yo daughter of Marju, who has been blighted by problems conceiving, lost her Speightstown foal last year having initially been confirmed as being pregnant. "She's still in Kentucky and is in great form at the moment -

healthy and enjoying life," said Matthew Budden, racing manager of the Elite Racing Club. "She had various infections and for whatever reason they weren't able to be dealt with in Britain. When she went to Kentucky they were cleared up within a matter of weeks, so we're in a different position to where we have been. "Last year was unfortunate, we so nearly got there and fingers crossed this year it all comes together."

Hernando (with Selkirk looking on)

Conquest, Gitano Hernando, Look Here and Rainbow Peak. A versatile sire, Hernando has supplied 78 lifetime 2yo winners, but several of his Flat-bred offspring have also excelled over jumps, including Cape Tribulation, No Refuge and State Of Play. Hernando is also making his mark as a broodmare sire, with his daughters having produced Group winners such as Aoife Alainn, Cherry Collect and Irish Field. Hernando's achievements came despite him covering more than 80 mares in a single breeding season on only one occasion. Rausing said: "Hernando had been retired from his stud duties since the close of the 2011 stud season and his final produce are now yearlings. "He was a most charming character, always kind and co-operative, and he is very sadly missed by us all at Lanwades. "I particularly wish to thank the horse's owner-breeders the Niarchos family for entrusting him to us at Lanwades, and to his devoted handler Steve McKeown, who has looked after Hernando at Lanwades for 17 years." Hernando's death is the second blow for Lanwades this year after another of the stud's veteran sires, Selkirk, died last month. Hernando has been buried next to Selkirk at Lanwades.

Retirement rule change Stateside

T

HE US Jockey Club has announced an amendment to its Principal Rules and Requirements of The American Stud Book, allowing owners to retire a horse from racing without affecting their potential breeding career. Previously, owners wishing to ensure a horse would not race again were required to return the Certificate of Foal Registration, which was then cancelled by The Jockey Club. This resulted in the horse being deemed 'without pedigree', and ineligible to race or breed in the future. Under the amended Rule 18, such horses will now be notified as 'retired from racing', ensuring they can be considered for breeding purposes but will be unable to return to the track. Instead of retaining the Certificate of Foal Registration,

The Jockey Club will return the document with notification attached stating the horse should no longer be considered a Thoroughbred for racing purposes. Executive vice president and executive director of The Jockey Club Matt Iuliano said: "For a myriad of reasons, owners may not want their Thoroughbred to race again, but they do want the horse's offspring to be eligible for registration with The Jockey Club. "We developed the 'Sold as Retired from Racing' rule with that in mind." The amendment has been met with support from the industry. Earle Mack, owner of triple Australian Group 1 winner Manighar, said: "I recently tried to sell a horse for breeding purposes only, but the horse ended up back at the track. "The belief is that the introcuction of this new rule

Earle Mack will help owners do what they believe is in the best interests of their horses. We surely owe our horses that." The new rule is similar to that of the Non-racing Agreement currently operated by the British Horseracing Authority. The agreement enables all owners to exclude a horse either from all racing, including point-to-points, or only from racing under Rules, but does not impact on an animal's potential breeding career.

Nathaniel off the mark

N Busy times at Cheveley Park

T

HE foaling season is well under way at Cheveley Park Stud in Newmarket, with 24 foals already making their arrival into the world. Canda, a Storm Cat daughter of dual French Classic winner East Of The Moon, delivered a Dubawi half-brother to Group 3 Horris Hill Stakes winner Evasive in January. She returns to Dubawi this season. French Group 2 scorer Macleya produced her fourth foal last month, a filly by Lawman. This season the daughter of Winged Love is set to visit Pivotal. Pivotal is the dam sire to another new addition, an Exceed And Excel filly out of the former Sir Michael Stoute-trained mare Peeress. Twice a Group 1 scorer, Peeress won over ÂŁ500,000 in prize money and has already

produced a winner in Ladyship, by Oasis Dream. This year she visits Oasis Dream's stablemate Dansili. Dual Listed winner Courting visited Cheveley Park's sire Pivotal in 2012, and last month delivered her first filly in nine foals. A sister to Group 3 winner Cupid's Glory, Courting is also the dam of Listed winner Fury, by Invincible Spirit. Using a next generation take on the nick, Courting will visit Invincible Spirit's son Mayson, also a Cheveley resident, in 2013. Listed-placed Enact will travel further afield for the second year running to be covered by Coolmore shuttler Fastnet Rock, after delivering a colt by his stablemate and paternal sibling Rock Of Gibraltar last month.

Careless Jewel to have a Bodemeister

T

HE first mare scanned in foal to last year's Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes runner-up Bodemeister is Grade 1 heroine Careless Jewel. Owned by Mike Moreno's Southern Equine Stables, Careless Jewel recently had her first foal, a colt by Street Cry, before getting back in foal to Bodemeister on the first cover. A grey daughter of Tapit, Careless Jewel scored her biggest victory in the 2009 Alabama Stakes at Saratoga, in which she scored by 11 lengths. She also won the Cotillion Stakes and Delaware Oaks, both

at Grade 2 level, before retiring with a record of five wins from seven starts. She was purchased by Southern Equine for $1.95 million as a broodmare prospect at the 2010 Fasig-Tipton November Select Mixed Sale in Kentucky. Bodemeister is standing his first season at WinStar Farm in Kentucky at a fee of $30,000. The son of Empire Maker was trained by Bob Baffert to win the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby by just over nine lengths before finishing runner-up to I'll Have Another in the first two US Classics.

EWSELLS Park Stud newcomer Nathaniel has passed his first test as a sire, with his first mare scanned in foal. The mare in question is Petite Nymphe, a winning Golan half-sister to Poule d'Essai des Pouliches and Prix de la Foret winner Danseuse Du Soir. Danseuse Du Soir is the dam of Group 1 Gran Criterium winner Scintillo and multiple Group 3 scorer Jumbajukiba. Nathaniel retired to Newsells Park in Hertfordshire this year

R

ACING Post Trophy winner Casamento has had his first mare scanned in foal. The mare in question, Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes runner-up and Listed scorer Luminata, has already produced five-time winner Aladdin's Lamp after a meeting with Cape Cross. She also has a yearling colt by Iffraaj and a 2yo by Teofilo. Casamento, who now stands alongside his sire Shamardal at Darley's Kildangan Stud, signed off his juvenile season at Doncaster when landing the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy - earning his trainer Michael Halford a first top-flight title. That win followed a four length victory in the

after winning four races including the Group 1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Eclipse. The 5yo also finished closer than any other horse to Frankel in a race, when he finished a half length second to the world champion in a maiden on both horses' debut. Nathaniel was unfortuate to have been foaled the same year as Frankel but can lay claim to being one of the best bred stallions in Europe, as he is by the outstanding Galileo and is one of eight

stakes winners out of Musidora Stakes scorer Magnificient Style, along with Great Heavens and Playful Act. Newsells Park general manager Julian Dollar said: "Nathaniel has received tremendous support from breeders in his first season at stud, particularly from members of his syndicate. "He has taken to his new career very well, but it's always something of a relief when the first mares to a new horse are safely scanned in foal."

Casamento lighting up Kildangan Curragh's Group 2 Beresford Stakes after being beaten just a head by Pathfork in the Group 1 National Stakes. Returning at three in the care of Mahmood Al Zarooni, Casamento made four outings, all in Group

company, adding to his tally with victory at Longchamp in the Group 3 Prix du Prince D'Orange. Standing this season for â‚Ź5,000, Casamento is set to cover over 30 stakes producers over the coming months.

HE Irish National Stud have confirmed their first season sires Dragon Pulse and Famous Name have had their first mares scanned in foal. The first mare covered by Dragon Pulse was Peaceful Kingdom, a half-sister to Dante Stakes and US Grade 1 winner Magistretti, who is from the family of high class middle distance performer Damister.

Famous and Dragon both named as being on the Pulse Mandore International snapped up her striking Acclamation colt at the Tattersalls Book 1 sale for 100,000gns at Newmarket last year.

Bred by John Tuthill of Owenstown Stud, Dragon Pulse was a high class juvenile for Jessica Harrington, beating subsequent Group 1 winner Parish Hall

Dragon Pulse

in the Futurity Stakes. At three, the son of Kyllachy was transferred to Mikel Delzangles in France, where he beat unbeaten juvenile Dabirsim in the Prix du

Famous Name

Fontainebleau. Dragon Pulse commands a fee of €6,000. If Dubai, a half-sister to Kentucky Oaks winner Gal In A Ruckus and to Miss Sobriety, dam of Grade 1 juvenile winner Habibti, was the first mare covered by Famous Name. If Dubai's third produce Holy Warrior won at Listed level for Gay Kelleway in France on Saturday and now heads for the UAE Derby. Bred and raced by Khalid Abdullah, Famous Name was a model of consistency for Dermot Weld, winning 20 stakes races including the Group 2 Royal Whip Stakes. The Dansili 8yo stands at €4,000.

Something for nothing

T

HE services of smart sprinter Mullionmileanhour will be available to certain mares for free for a limited period in his third season at Hedgeholme Stud in County Durham this year. The offer is open to mares who won on the track, or who have produced winners at stud. A complimentary covering by

D

UAL Group 1 winner Jukebox Jury has started his new career at Gestut Etzean on a high, with his first three mares covered all confirmed in foal. The son of Montjeu, who raced for four seasons on the same number of continents, retired after his first tilt at the Melbourne Cup last year. That run came off the back of his second Group 1 victory, when dead-heating with Duncan in the Irish St Leger. Trained throughout his career by Middleham handler Mark Johnston, Jukebox Jury opened his account on debut when landing a 7f Goodwood maiden in 2008, earning his first top flight title a year later in Cologne's Preis von Europa.

Mullionmileanhour is also being made available to breeders with more than one mare who also use one of Hedgeholme's other stallions, Arabian Gleam or Doncaster Rover. Mullionmileanhour was trained by John Best to win on his juvenile debut by three lengths and then finish third in the

Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot. He reappeared at four to earn a Racing Post Rating of 114 by running Group 1 winner Equiano to a short head second off level weights in Newmarket’s Listed Abernant Stakes. Mullionmileanhour is by Mull Of Kintyre and out of the

Royal Applause mare Lady Lucia. His first foals went through the ring last year and they sold for up to 9,000gns. Another benefit is that Hedgeholme Stud works under the Flat Rate Farming scheme so breeders not registered for VAT will not be charged VAT on keep fees.

Jury hitting Magic colt a first for Night right notes M Now standing in Germany, the 7yo has enjoyed a successful start to his second career, and has an enviable book of mares awaiting for the coming season. In addition to those already infoal, all of whom are black type mares, Preis der Diana runner-up Dominante and Grade 3 winner Humaita will both be visiting Jukebox Jury.

Jukebox Jury (grey, far side) by a nostril

Proven Group and Grade 1 producers booked for 2013 include Night Woman and Majorata, the dams of German Oaks winners Night Magic and Mystic Lips respectively, Reem Dubai, whose daughter Royal Highness landed the Beverley D Stakes, and the dams of Meridiana, Esmondo, Ole Companero and Askar Tau.

ORMER German horse of the year Night Magic delivered her first foal in Japan on February 23. The new arrival is a colt by outstanding Japanese sire Deep Impact and is owned by Katsumi Yoshida of Northern Farm. A 7yo daughter of Sholokhov, Night Magic was sold at BBAG to BBA Germany on behalf of owners Stall Salzburg for €43,000. Trained by Wolfgang Figge, she won the Preis der Diana and

finished second in the Premio Lydia Tesio at three. The following season she beat the colts to land the Grosser Preis von Baden and finished second in two other Group 1s, before being voted Germany's horse of the year of 2010. At the end of Night Magic's 3yo season she was offered at the Arqana December Breeding Stock Sale, but was led out of the ring unsold at €800,000. She was subsequently sold privately to Yoshida.

QATAR REVIEW

Fouladh

De Mieulle sets pace as Name stakes Sheema Classic claim T EN winners for trainer Alban de Mieulle, two for Julian Smart: the bare statistics tell the story of where the balance of power rested at last week’s three-day Qatar International Festival, the country’s richest and most prestigious fixture of the year. Although de Mieulle’s Umm Qarn stable, which now presents a generic ownership title for its Al Thani family members, won the

Baaria

biggest Thoroughbred race last year, it relinquished top spot in the major events for the Purebred Arabians. Last week normal service was resumed with a vengeance, as Umm Qarn scooped six of the seven richest races over the three days, and did so across the board, with Thoroughbreds and Arabians. On Tuesday, Fouladh reinforced his claim to be Qatar’s top miler by repeating his 2012

triumph in the Gulf Cup (Group 2) for Gulf-bred Arabians, scoring a comfortable length and a half success over Eric Lemartinel’s Abu Dhabi-based AF Sanadek in the hands of stable jockey David Bouland, who had earlier guided the remarkable 4yo filly Baaria to her 11th win from 13 outings in the Al Rayyan Cup for the locally-raised Thoroughbreds. There was even better to come for Umm Qarn on Wednesday,

Burren Quality

when its four winners included the two biggest races of the day – the Qatar International Trophy (Group 1) for Purebred Arabians, where Muntasar and Bouland led home a stable 1-2-3, and the Qatar International Cup (Group 2), for Thoroughbreds, in which Olivier Peslier rode his fellow jockeys to sleep with a front-running ride on Burren Quality. Peslier turned 40 last month and won the last of his four French

Champion Jockey titles in 2000, but he remains at the top of his game in international terms, and conjured more than the best out of the 4yo Burren Quality. Burren Quality, bred by the Moyglare Stud in Ireland but sold in France to the Umm Qarn connections for €240,000 as a yearling, had won just one race previously, a small conditions event last May – ridden by Peslier. This was the first meeting of horse

Very Nice Name and jockey since. Burren Quality, whose previous trainer Freddy Head was among a large French contingent at the festival on hand to share in the success, had slipped in the ratings from 97 to 92 after four races in Qatar, but is set for a significant upgrade, as the runnerup at a length and a quarter was Amigo Mio, a reliable yardstick locally rated 115 – admittedly over longer distances – since his own departure from France in 2010. An honourable fourth place here went to Muraweg, having made the trip from Dubai for Bahrain-based Fawsi Nass, who the previous day gained encouragement from a close third placing by his expensive Tattersalls October Sales purchase Hototo, following a below par Meydan debut. Six winners on the first two days would have been good enough for most, but De Mieulle and the Umm Qarn team were far from finished, and they rattled off four more winners, including the two richest of the whole festival, on Thursday, with Peslier completing a treble. Emphasising how the stable is expanding its Thoroughbred influence, three of the winners came in this category. Italian jockey Pierantonio Convertino, who is making a strong bid for the riders’ title for number of winners, set the ball rolling in a minor handicap on Mud Hilah, before Peslier took over, striking first on the home-bred, French-reared Al

Faraj, who broke her duck in a conditions event for fillies and mares, before claiming the Emir’s Trophy (Group 1) on Very Nice Name, who would provide a credible Thoroughbred challenger for Qatar on Dubai World Cup night if an invitation to run in the Sheema Classic is forthcoming. A 4yo, who began his career in France by landing a Compiegne maiden race on his 2yo debut and completed his European campaign by running third in a mile handicap at Longchamp on Arc day, Very Nice Name was completing an unbeaten five timer in Qatar on his first run at a mile and a half. Peslier was in no hurry to test Very Nice Name’s stamina to the hilt, but once he had crept closer to the leaders on the home turn, the result was settled as soon as he took over the lead 200m out, and he won by a cosy length and a half from Peter Anders, a dual sand-track winner since his transfer from Mark Johnston’s stable to the Gulf. De Mieulle said: “Very Nice Name is still improving, and each time I have stepped him up in trip he has responded. I will now keep him at a mile and a half. “We have nominated him for the Sheema Classic and I hope he gets an invitation.” One race later Peslier, De Mieulle and the Umm Qarn juggernaut rang down the curtain on the festival by landing Qatar’s most important Arabian race, the

Emir’s Sword (Group 1) with the outstanding Tabarak, now the winner of 10 of his 11 races and unbeaten this season, who was making his mile and a half debut. Tabarak came home a length to the good, leaving De Mieulle to say: “We knew he was a good horse but since he was racing over the distance for the first time, we were a little anxious. Now we can relax.” Reflection rather than relaxation is probably the case for trainer Julian Smart, whose team spent most of the three days chasing Umm Qarn’s shadow, such as when Rathowan ran second to Tabarak, and his smart 4yo filly Al Anga went down by a neck and two short heads to the De Mieulle threesome headed by Muntasar. However, hope springs eternal in the horseracing world, and Smart can look forward to campaigning the exciting youngster Assy, whose jockey Christophe Lemaire added to the festival’s dominant French connection by winning the Emir’s Trophy (Group 1) for locally-raised Purebred Arabians. Assy broke his maiden on 16 January and was having only his fourth outing, but he has shown around 50lb improvement in the local handicap ratings in the meantime. “He’s rescued my season,” Smart said, relieved to have found at least one chink in the Umm Qarn armoury.

ENDURANCE

by Tim Aroon

Great weekend for Family Al Jahouri

I

T turned out to be a weekend to remember for the Al Jahouri family with the father and son taking home two of the three endurance silverwares at the Emirates International Endurance Village in Al Wathba. Ali Khalfan Al Jahouri rode GM Navidad to victory in the 120km Giants Endurance Challenge after his 14yo son Khalifa had steered Leo to win the CEN 100km Sheikh Mohammed bin Mansour Al Nahyan Cup for private owners and stables in the opening day of the three-day festival in Abu Dhabi over the weekend. In between, Dana Al Mutawa on Hirstglen Horizon led a podium sweep for the Seeh Al Salam Stables in the Sheikh Rashid bin Hamdan Al Maktoum Challenge, a 120km CEI 2-star ride. It was a rare feat for a father and son to win two different races for two different stables within three days. Al Jahouri played down the joy and excitement though, saying: “Indeed it doesn’t happen more often but it was down to a lot of hard work and some good fortune.

“My son was very excited and that’s natural because it is his first season. He’s got an early start and will do well if he keeps a cool head and continues to work hard.” Khalifa was riding the winner for Saeed Suhail Al Yabhouni’s Al Ain Endurance Stables and said: “I followed the instructions of my father which was to take one loop at a time.” Khalifa virtually led from the start to finish on the 12yo Crossbred chestnut gelding to win by more than four minutes from Rashid Saeed Al Kamda on Ex Caliber and Saeed Ahmed Al Harbi on Rowallan Simon. Ali Khalfan improved two places in the last loop to win the Giants ride on the 7yo grey Crossbred mare from Yousef Ahmed Al Baloushi on Rivergum Drifter and the Emirates Stables Spanish rider Diego Santos on Siroco El Kaiser. “We had about seven minutes to catch up with the leader in the last loop but this mare, although young and inexperienced, battled through a tough field and the rising temperatures to win well at the end,” Al Jahouri said.

AST Tuesday, Habtoor Polo defeated Mahra by 6 goals to 5 in their first match of the Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series 2013. Despite leading the game from the second chukka till the end, the Silver Cup champions had to work really hard to win the match as Mahra Polo played their best game of the season and fought until the end. The battle of the Al Habtoor brothers was a fierce and tactical affair. No goals were scored in the first chukka but in the second period, Habtoor Polo quickly took the lead with two goals from Guillermo Cuitino and one by Ezequiel Martínez. Mahra fought back at the end of the chukka with goals by

Gold Cup Continues Apace Agustín Canale and Fernando Bordieu. Habtoor Polo kicked on in the third chukka playing some of their best polo and as a result taking a three goal advantage, including a fine goal by Mohammed Al Habtoor. Mahra never gave up and battled to keep the final score close. In the last chukka, Ezequiel Martinez added a new goal for Habtoor and despite the continuing effort of Mahra they closed the match by winning 6 goals to 5. Last Thursday, Ghantoot Polo lost a close game in the second round of the Dubai Gold Cup to

their bogey team of late in Abu Dhabi Polo. It was Abu Dhabi Polo who denied Ghantoot Polo a place in the final of the Silver Cup earlier this month and the Royal club would have been hopeful of a strong showing after beating the 2012 Gold Cup champions, Habtoor Polo in a charity match on home turf over the weekend. But it was not to be. Ghantoot, who defeated Saudi Arabia’s Zedan Polo in their opening Gold Cup clash on Monday, were unable to sustain a three-goal advantage gained in the first-chukka which also saw star player, Facundo Sola receive treatment after sustaining a knock to the leg. Abu Dhabi’s JJ Storni pulled back a goal in the second chukka but at half-time, Ghantoot were still leading 3-1. In the third chukka, Abu Dhabi Polo scored twice more while Ghantoot answered once and the sides went into the final period with a 4-3 lead. The fourth chukka saw Manuel Elizalde level the score for Abu Dhabi only for Sola to drive home a penalty giving Ghantoot the lead again. But with less than 30 seconds left on the clock, Storni buried the ball between the posts in open play to take the teams to a golden goal fifth chukka and it was Storni who scored the penalty, sealing the win for Abu Dhabi.

Ali Al Marri, Ghantoot’s Emirati player was disappointed: “An extra-time penalty is one of the most frustrating ways to lose an important game,” he said. “We had a lead in the beginning and obviously things didn’t go our way after that and we are very disappointed.” The action continued coming last Saturday as Bin Drai and Habtoor Polo both triumphed. Saeed bin Drai´s team defeated Mahra by 14 goals to 9 while Mohammed Al Habtoor´s team triumphed against Zedan by 7 goals to 6 in overtime. The match between Bin Drai and Mahra was full of exciting moments and goals as it became the highest scoring match so far in the Dubai Polo Gold Series 2013. Mahra led by 7 goals to 4 at halftime but a great reaction by Bin Drai turned things over and the scoreboard had them as leaders during the second half of the game. Juan José Brane was definitely the MVP with 8 goals, including four in the final chukka. Habtoor Polo and Zedan gave the crowd at the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Team a really exciting end-to-end match. Nachi Heguy for Zedan and Ezequiel Martínez for Habtoor were the two outstanding players on the pitch. With a one goal difference in the fourth chukka, Heguy took the game to overtime after leveling scores with

a wonderful goal. But in the extra chukka it was Martínez who sealed victory for Habtoor Polo giving them a good chance to reach the semifinals of the Gold Cup.

Pink Polo Nominated Best Sporting Event Pink Polo presented by ADCB, a unique polo initiative that was created in Abu Dhabi to support breast cancer awareness in the UAE, was yesterday nominated as Best Sport Event at the inaugural Sport Industry Awards (SPIA). The SPIA awards was created by Gulf Sports Media, the pioneers of Sport360, the world’s only English language daily sports newspaper, along with trade and consumer publication specialists, Mediaquest. The awards will honour top industry leaders for their contribution to the development of sport in the UAE. Pink Polo’s founder Carrie McNeill, who launched Pink Polo in 2010, said: “It’s a great recognition to be nominated in this prestigious award. I believe Pink Polo has

helped promote the sport of polo to a whole new audience and I believe our concept has showcased how the power of sport can be used to unite a community to support a great cause.” She continued: “Just to have our event competing with big sports such as football, tennis and golf is a proud achievement for polo in general and for us as organisers. “We have had great support from leading local businesses such as Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank as well as international brands, St Regis Resorts & Hotels who recognised Pink polo last year. The vision would not have been possible without the support of His Highness Sheikh Falah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, whose Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club is one of the biggest driving forces of polo in the region, along with government support from Abu Dhabi Sports Council.” The Pink Polo concept is developed and managed by Mama Creative, a company which develops ideas to power strategic alliances between governments, international brands and grassroot communities. Designed as an enjoyable family day out, Pink Polo was created as a way to break down social taboos associated with breast cancer awareness. McNeil said: “At Mama Creative, we design ideas and solutions that drive brands and entities forward while supporting

the local community. Pink Polo is a great showcase where government and businesses can associate with an event that not only brings exposure to their brand but at the same time includes CSR as an added bonus. The meaning of the terms ‘sustainability’ and ‘business’ are undergoing a transition and companies are now beginning to understand that in order to create bigger returns on investment and profits, they need to give more emphasis to the social value of business, moving beyond the simple goal of profit maximisation.” Pink Polo is presented by ADCB and supported by Official Partners St. Regis Hotel & Resorts, Mercedes-Benz, Emirates Motors Company and Omnia. The 2013 Pink Polo will start on October 1 with a UAE-wide university campus tour leading up to the main family day taking place on Friday November 8. For more information visit www.pinkpolo.ae

Beach Polo Cup to return to Dubai Traditionally referred to as the ‘Sport of Kings’, after much anticipation, the original Beach Polo Cup is set to return to its roots on the sands of Dubai this 19th and 20th of April, 2013. Arguably the world’s grandest and most entertaining sport, beach polo adds an electrifying dimension by swapping ‘turf for surf’ as players battle it out on the sands of one of

Dubai’s iconic beach locations. Founded in 2004 by Mamemo Productions, the Beach Polo Cup has since grown tremendously, making its way to more than 30 cities all over the world, including Miami (USA), Ibiza (Spain), Cabo San Lucas (Mexico), Riviera (Mexico), Rimini (Italy), Poole (England), as well as soon to be, Tianjin (China). During a recently held signing ceremony, Sam Katiela, Beach Polo Cup organiser and Mamemo Productions’ Managing & Creative Director, proudly announced Julius Baer, the leading Swiss private banking group, as the presenting and team sponsor for this year’s event, now officially named the Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013. Remy Bersier, Member of the Executive Board of Julius Baer, and present at the signing ceremony commented: “The sponsorship activities of Julius Baer share the same goals towards which we strive every day as a business enterprise: to consider the individual needs of our clients. That is why we support carefully selected sports and cultural events that represent innovation, consciousness of tradition and the exceptional quality of performance. We are delighted to showcase our commitment to the game and the region in our latest

partnership with Mamemo Productions to launch the Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013.” Featuring an invitation only Exclusive Players Night on the 18th of April and two days of heart-pounding tournaments on the 19th and 20th, Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013 will celebrate the event’s success by bringing an entourage of professional polo players from around the world as well as recognised personalities and celebrities from the region. “Dubai is continually being stamped on the global map as a world class destination,” says Sam Katiela. “Since gaining international momentum and after the success of previous years, it’s now time to bring beach polo back to Dubai!” Bringing world class horsemanship, nail biting pace and international glamour to the shores of Dubai, the legendary tournament, under the new name, Julius Baer Beach Polo Cup Dubai 2013, promises to be a weekend to remember. Monday’s matches blew the Dubai Polo Gold Cup wide open again with results that saw Saeed bin Drai’s team defeat Habtoor Polo by 6 goals to 5 and Amr Zedan´s team overcome Abu Dhabi 10-9.

The victories of Bin Drai and Zedan in these matches for the Gold Cup brought both teams right back into contention for the tournament. Three teams now have two victories in the Gold Cup and these are Habtoor Polo, Abu Dhabi Polo and Bin Drai Polo whilst the other three, Ghantoot Polo, Mahra Polo and Zedan Polo will all continue to fight to get through to the semifinals in the remaining matches of the qualifying round. Bin Drai played a great match against Habtoor Polo with a tough victory by 6 goals to 5. It was a game played with a lot of intensity, with both teams making great efforts to win the game. In the end, the slightly better team work and accuracy saw the Bin Drai outfit home. Saeed bin Drai scored the first goal within the first 30 sec. and his team never looked back, although Habtoor Polo certainly kept the pressure on them. Zedan were in the second game and they finally achieved their first victory of the tournament by defeating Abu Dhabi 10 goals to 9. They have been threatening this for a long time as they have had bad luck in the extra chukkas but on Monday, they just avoided that ordeal with the winning goal coming in the last 30 seconds of the match. That was scored by Mariano Uranga.

NICHOLAS GODFREY'S INTERNATIONAL POST

P

ROOF positive that even a blind pig can snout out a truffle arrived last week when Breeders’ Cup officials announced they would indeed be going back on their pledge to extend their Lasix ban to every race at this year’s two-day meeting at Santa Anita. You may recall, such a development was forecast here seven days ago, which is possibly the best tip this column has ever produced. (Apart from Trade Storm, the shining light among that unfortunate list of horses to follow published in this slot two months ago.) Be that as it may, raceday use of the anti-bleeding medication furosemide - to use the generic medical name rather than its former trade name - will continue to be prohibited only in the four juvenile races. And, you will note, that is four juvenile races, not five, the unloved Juvenile Sprint having been axed after just two runnings to reduce the total number of Breeders’ Cup contests to 14. That $500,000 contest won’t be missed, having produced short, uncompetitive fields and a pair of winners whose * names have probably already been forgotten even by the trainers who saddled them. “The number of starters and overall quality did not meet the standards expected for the championships,” said Cup president Craig Fravel, with a trace of understatement. Reaction to the news regarding Lasix was swift and clear-cut. Ollie Tait, Sheikh Mohammed’s

Follow the scent representative on the Breeders’ Cup board, resigned from his Cup role straight away. Tait, chief operating officer of the Darley bloodstock operation, issued a strongly-worded statement in which he highlighted the sheikh’s disappointment at the Breeders’ Cup volte face. “The Breeders’ Cup has reversed its previously agreed and stated position that the 2013 Breeders’ Cup World Championships will be conducted without Lasix,” said Tait. “As a consequence, I have resigned from the board of the Breeders’ Cup. “Sheikh Mohammed, Darley’s Principal, has been one of the biggest players in American racing for the last 30 years. His vision for the sport in America is a future where racing is enjoyed and admired by a new generation of participants and enthusiasts. A true world championship, to be enjoyed and admired by all, needs to be medication free. “Progress is being made in all sports around the world in relation to drugs. This is not progress. The Breeders’ Cup is a leader of this sport and I was extremely proud to serve on its board. Having rightly and boldly chosen to lead the way on the issue of drugs in racing in 2011, it has now stepped back in time. I hope that in the near future it can lead again.” Darley, alongside Sheikh Hamdan’s Shadwell operation and

Khalid Abdullah’s Juddmonte Farms, have been at the forefront pressure against US racing’s apparent dependence on raceday medication. In July, they featured on a list of 40 leading owners in America who pledged not to use such substances, including Lasix, on their 2yos. Among those to support the move were Team Valor, George Strawbridge, William S Farish, Robert Clay and WinStar Farms’ Bill Casner. That ‘petition’, announced in a statement issued by the US Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders’ Association (TOBA), was seen as a first step in moving away from the pervasive laissez faire attitude towards medication on American racetracks. It followed the decision of the Breeders’ Cup to ban such medication in 2yos’ races at Santa Anita last November. Yet the use of Lasix remains a controversial subject in American racing, where the vast majority of horses race on the medication, which is banned in other major racing nations. Several US trainers have spoken out against any ban, including Dubai regular Bob Baffert, staunchly pro-Lasix and such a fan of the anti-bleeding stuff that he went to social media to publicise his antagonism towards any prohibition. Under his twitter alias @Midnightlute, Baffert said: “If they take raceday lasix away, I will recommend to all my clients to

sell their broodmares asap.” Several leading 2yos failed to show up at Santa Anita last term owing to the Lasix ban, so it is clear the Breeders’ Cup was under enormous pressure from horsemen. If they deserved credit for leading the way in the States, it is clear the potential threat of reduced fields in all 14 races was too much to bear, resulting in a decision described as ‘gutless’ in some quarters. While they may not have taken Tait’s decision to leave the Breeders’ Cup board, certain officials have every right to be feeling a little uncomfortable right now. In September last year, Breeders’ Cup director of racing Josh Christian told me: “We consider ourselves an international event, not an American event - and when you’re an international event you have to adhere to international standards. A lot of my friends are vets and it’s not for me to speak about the issue of right and wrong but this is what the rest of the world is doing and we are an international event.” Josh will now have to defend the Breeders’ Cup backtrack, and it is doubtful the brickbats will be stopped by the pledge of funding assistance for a proposed industrywide independent study of the causes, effects and potential alternative methods of reducing the occurrence of exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH) in racehorses.

In announcing the pusillanimous move, Breeders’ Cup chairman Tom Ludt said: “We recognise there has been great divisiveness in our industry over medication rules, but joining together in the common goal of independent scientific research of the effects of medications, coupled with industry pursuit of uniform rules, will move us toward eliminating such divisions. Our board feels this measure, keeping the policy in place for the juvenile races and maintaining the 2012 policy elsewhere, is the most practical course of action.” Practical? Maybe. Unwelcome? Certainly. On the plus side, though, at least they’ve got rid of that dismal Juvenile Sprint. *In case you’re interested, the two Juvenile Sprint winners were Secret Circle (Bob Baffert) and Hightail (D Wayne Lukas) Nicholas Godfrey, Racing Post international editor

The news in brief

HARRY'S NEWS SHORTS

I

NDIA: Jockey Jimmy Fortune and 7yo chestnut gelding Nefyn denied the Bangalore challenger Speed Six in the Grade 1 Oasis Star Sprinters’ Cup at Kolkata. Later, Native Knight put up a resolute display to win the other Grade 1 contest which was the Stayers’ Cup. Argentina: Candy Marie once again advertised her claim as one of Argentina’s top fillies with a victory in the Group 2 Clásico Arturo R. y Arturo Bullrich on Saturday at Palermo racecourse in Buenos Aires. Ridden by Pablo Falero, Candy Marie scored her second Group win. The Pure Prize 3yo filly also scored a victory in the Group 3 Clásico Apertura - Copa Diario La Nación. Australia: Multiple buyers purchased 81 lots for $5,890,500 during the new Sunday afternoon session on day one of the 2013 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale at Oaklands. “It was a solid start to the sale with a similar average, median and clearance rate recorded to day one last year,” said Inglis’ Managing Director Mark Webster.

Ireland: With next week having the Cheltenham Festival in the UK many of the Irish hopes were put through their paces at Leopardstown after racing on Sunday as is now a great tradition. The wonder mare Quevega who is bidding for her fifth win in the Mares Hurdle at the Gloucestershire track was particularly impressive and is fancied by all her connections to complete the five-timer. South Africa: Tellina ran out a convincing winner of the Group 2 Gauteng Guineas at Turffontein on Saturday. The son of Silvano looks one to follow although with two furlongs to go he was in a line of eight all with chances before he stormed clear of his rivals in the first leg of the South African Triple Crown. Also on the card, Cherry On The Top saw off a hot field including the highly regarded Mike de Kock-trained Espumanti to win the Group 2 Fillies Guineas which is the first leg of the Triple Tiara. Perhaps we have seen the next Igugu?

UAE: With Super Saturday this week there will be lots of international visitors here to enjoy the races. The Irish are pretty strong in numbers with Mark O’Hanlon representing Irish Thoroughbred Marketing, Joey Cullen representing Goffs and Tim Kent from DBS all planning to be there. The meeting will certainly capture the eyes of the world. Korea: Pico Central, who won the Met Mile at Belmont in 2004, has passed away at Stud in South Korea. After a successful racing career in Brazil and the USA where he raced in Gary Tanaka’s famous colours, he was then purchased by the Korea Racing Authority in late 2007 and sent to the KRA Jeju Stud Farm on Jeju Island where, apart from a spell on the mainland at Jangsu, he would remain for the rest of his life. UK: My eyes will be on the Cotswolds next week for the Cheltenham Festival. It certainly is the highlight of the British National Hunt

Racing Season. This time next week they will be more than half way through the meeting. My ideas of winners for Tuesday are My Tent Or Yours in the Supreme Novices Hurdle, Simonsig in the Arkle, Rock On Ruby in the Champion Hurdle and nothing will beat Sprinter Sacre in the Queen Mother Champion Chase! Several watering holes in the UAE are sure to show the action to there is no excuse to miss the excitement.

PAT CUMMINGS STATESIDE

Romans Returns to Dubai T

HE presence of Dullahan and Little Mike, two top American runners at the 2013 Super Saturday meeting, hopefully starts a new trend, and one that is more likely to take hold if the two Dale Romans trainees have success at the upcoming Dubai World Cup meeting. Romans is back in the UAE for the first time since winning the 2005 Dubai World Cup with Roses In May, and his team is potent. 2012 was a banner year as Romans was named America’s Champion Trainer – four horses each won at least two Grade 1 races, a list that includes Dullahan and Little Mike. Both are likely to need their Super Saturday preps, but both are wildly exciting horses.

Dullahan, owned by fun-loving Iowa-based syndicate Donegal Racing, has an electric closing kick that shines brightest on the all-weather. A half-brother to Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird, Dullahan’s only career wins have come in Grade 1 races on all-weather surfaces, including a brilliant defeat of Game On Dude (more on him, later) in the Pacific Classic at Del Mar. This is the calm before the storm for Donegal Racing, who expect to have 60 syndicate members on site for the primary goal – the $10 million Dubai World Cup. Little Mike is as consistent as a horse can get – he runs incredibly even-paced sectionals, and always with prominence. His wins in the Turf Classic at

Churchill, Arlington Million, and Breeders’ Cup Turf were efforts in masterful riding and patience. As outlined in this column early in the season, Little Mike is as dangerous a horse that has been sent from America to run a non-sprint race at Meydan, and it’s specifically because of his free-running style. Whether or not he gets over the Tapeta is a question that will likely have an answer after Saturday, but he is a pace danger wherever he runs. Dude doubtful for DWC Game On Dude, a disappointing and wide 12th in the 2012 Dubai World Cup, came back in style to begin his 6yo season, annexing his second Santa Anita Handicap by almost eight lengths. While sitting on an

invitation back to Dubai, his current connections are expected to bypass the return trip in favour of the $1.5 million Charles Town Classic in mid-April. Breeders’ Cup maintains Lasix policy Announced last week, the Breeders’ Cup will maintain its policy first established last year, which forbids the use of Lasix in races for 2yos, the common name for the anti-bleeding medication furosemide. While the Breeders’ Cup is holding the status quo from 2012, it is holding off making previously planned changes to eliminate Lasix from all races. Oliver Tait, Chief Operating Officer of Darley, resigned his position from the Breeders’ Cup board in reaction to the change. “Progress is being

made in all sports around the world in relation to drugs,” Tait said in a statement. “This is not progress.” As this column has documented often, the medication debate remains so wildly complex given the size and scope of the American racing industry, a clear solution is unlikely any time soon.

TOM JENNINGS’ VIEW FROM IRELAND

T

HERE is a strong Irish challenge for the $175,000 Meydan Sprint, the prep for the Al Quoz Sprint on Dubai World Cup night, at Meydan tonight, one of the features of a star-studded card. The Listed event, first run in 2011, sees last year’s winner Invincible Ash, trained by Mick Halford tackle 15 rivals, including her stable companion Russian Soul. Winless in seven runs since landing this prize 12 months ago, she returned to form last Saturday, staying on late to finish a never-nearer third behind Kavanagh. Up in grade, she’ll need to raise her game, whilst the step back to the minimum distance isn’t in her favour, as she tends to get outpaced early. The perennial bridesmaid Russian Soul, runner-up in his last five runs, three over today’s course, has something to find with the principals on the official ERA ratings under new rider Ryan Moore, replacing the suspended Shane Foley. Halford is due a change of luck at Meydan this year, having saddled five seconds. David Marnane is two-handed with Dubai Carnival regular Dandy Boy and Red Dubawi, the mount of Paul Hanagan. Pat Dobbs, attached to Doug Watson’s Red Stables, teams up with Dandy Boy and the pair landed the Wokingham Handicap at Royal Ascot last June in convincing fashion, clocking a faster time than the mighty Black

Strong Irish Challenge in Meydan Sprint Caviar recorded when landing the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, over the same course and distance, on the same card. Dandy Boy, holder of the seven-furlong Meydan turf track record, is reported to be in good heart and pleasing his connections ahead of tonight’s test. Sole Power, shock winner of the 2010 Nunthorpe Stakes at York, is a regular runner in all the major sprints and only found Invincible Ash too strong in last year’s Meydan Sprint before filling the same berth in the Al Quoz Sprint on his next appearance. Johnny Murtagh is booked to ride. My Special J’S, the sole 3yo in the field and the final Irish runner, showed improved form in the UAE Oaks, finishing behind the placed horses. To be ridden by Tadhg O’Shea, the 3yo filly faces a mammoth task tackling seasoned and experienced sprinters. The David Marnane-trained Elleval, winner of the Meydan Classic Trial, makes his Tapeta debut in the Al Bastakiya, the prep for the UAE Derby, just over half an hour earlier. Owned by Damian Lavelle, Elleval

produced a solid effort when not enjoying the best of runs nine days ago in the Meydan Classic, finishing three lengths behind the winner Now Spun in fourth. The step up to 1m 11/2f is an obvious query but connections are hoping he’ll stay the distance and earn a tilt at the $2million UAE Derby. Johnny Murtagh is reunited with

Balmont Mast, the final Irish runner of the card, in the Mahab Al Shimaal, which will provide plenty of clues for the $2million Golden Shaheen on Dubai World Cup night. The former Irish champion jockey has enjoyed plenty of success on the Eddie Lynam-trained gelding, most notably winning

the Listed Mercury Stakes at Dundalk, where he eclipsed Sole Power’s track record. Since switched to Tapeta, Balmont Mast has returned to form, the latest a solid fourth behind smart sprinter Mental in the Group 3 Al Shindagha Sprint. He has a wide barrier in stall 10 to overcome but should make his presence felt in the Group 3, where Golden Shaheen victor and last year’s winner Krypton Factor sets decent standard off a mark of 123.

IMPORTANT NOTICE Please note that the Pick 6 and associated competitions will be based on the FINAL six races on both Super Saturday (Saturday 9th March) and Dubai World Cup Night (Saturday 30th March)

JOHN BERRY’S VIEW FROM NEWMARKET

All To Play For Down Under T HE last three Saturdays have each featured some terrific racing in Australia, and the next few weekends all promise similarly thrilling fare. This autumn’s racing will contain an extra dimension of interest in that Horse of the Year honours are still wide open, with no candidate having yet done enough to have put himself/herself in pole position. It is not impossible, of course, that reigning Horse of the Year Black Caviar will take the award again. She has only run once this campaign and presumably would need to see action on at least a couple more occasions – but her victory last month in the Lightning Stakes at Flemington, in which she broke Special’s 25yo track record, has to rank as the best performance posted on an Australian racecourse this season. A couple more such exhibitions of virtuoso galloping might be enough to seal the title again – but, even so, it is not guaranteed that her future appearances will be even that numerous.

Of the three biggest races run so far this season in Australia – Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup – only the winner of one of them (Melbourne Cup hero Green Moon) ranks as a likely Horse of the Year, and even he would need a good autumn to gain the award. Caulfield Cup hero Dunaden will not run in Australia again this season, while Cox Plate winner Ocean Park is presently both out of form (he recently finished fourth at odds-on in a five-runner weight-for-age race in New Zealand) and more likely to head to Meydan for the Dubai Duty Free than to Sydney for the Autumn Carnival. In the possible absence of any high-achieving older horse, the door has been left open for a 3yo. Two colts of that age currently rank as contenders: All Too Hard and Pierro, who back in the spring filled the quinella in the Caulfield Guineas two weeks before finishing second and third behind Ocean Park in the Cox Plate. Both All Too Hard and Pierro held engagements last

weekend. The former, with two Group 1 weight-for-age victories to his name from two starts this preparation, looked set to go off the odds-on favourite in the Australian Guineas at Flemington. Pierro was set to resume in Sydney, where his opponents were headed by the unbeaten and inform Rebel Dane. Disappointingly, All Too Hard, a half-brother to Black Caviar, was scratched on Saturday morning, having presented an elevated temperature. We must hope that this setback is only short-lasting, from the points of view not only of his forthcoming Australian campaign, but also of his proposed trip to Royal Ascot in June to contest the Queen Anne Stakes. Pierro, though, was All Too Hard’s superior as a juvenile and, although he twice finished behind his main rival in the spring, he could be set to re-assert his dominance in the coming weeks, judged on his narrow defeat of Rebel Dane on Saturday in the Hobartville Stakes on a

heavy-track at Rosehill. If Pierro were indeed able to dominate the 3yos’ ranks during the Sydney Autumn Carnival, he would establish himself as a likely Horse of the Year. Were this to happen, it would set up an unprecedented hat-trick: his sire Lonhro is to date the only Horse of the Year sired by a stallion who himself had been awarded that accolade (Octagonal) so a three-generation sequence would be truly remarkable. Whether or not Pierro can become Horse of the Year, he has already proved himself a very special horse. In fact, had he never won beyond the age of two, that comment would still apply: he was an outstanding juvenile, dominating the rankings last season with a clean sweep of the Two-Year-Olds’ Triple Crown (Golden Slipper, Sires’ Produce and Champagne Stakes). Where Pierro differs from most Golden Slipper winners is that he has a staying pedigree. Not only is the Darley-bred colt a product of the Sir Tristram

sire-line which has to date taken six Melbourne Cups, but he comes from the family of Derby winner Dr Devious, Oaks winner Dancing Rain, and Godolphin’s grand stayer Opinion Poll. His past achievements have been great, but his future could be even greater.

In a race weakened by the late scratching of Black Caviar’s Classic-winning half-brother All Too Hard due to a high temperature, Ferlax tracked the leader Ajeeb until quickening through a gap on the rail as that horse drifted right-handed passing the 300m pole. Having repelled the eventual third Sheer Talent, the dark bay responded to every call of his pilot Stephen Baster to hold the late thrust of another New Zealand-bred, the filly You’re So Good. Unbeaten in four starts, Ferlax only made his debut at the end of last November, comfortably winning a maiden event at Echuca, and further successes in minor handicaps at lowly Benalla and Sale and the fitting of blinkers for the first time guaranteed his position as one of the outsiders at Flemington. His Australian Guineas victory makes him the 19th Group winner by his sire, Be My Guest’s King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Irish Champion Stakes hero Pentire and the 12th to triumph at the highest level, joining such luminaries as 10-time Group 1 ace Mufhasa and the 2004 ARC New Zealand Derby scorer Xcellent. A triple Listed winner, Ferlax’s grandam Leggings is out of a half-sister to the CJC New Zealand Oaks heroine Devante, whose daughter Trappings won the Group 1 WATC Western Australian Oaks. Indeed, Devante is also respectively the third and fourth dam of the Group 1 WRC Telegraph Handicap queen Guiseppina and the Group 1 CJC New Zealand 2000 Guineas hero The Pooka.

The first three home in the UAE 1000 Guineas filled the first three places in the Grade 3 UAE Oaks, but this time Shuruq stormed clear early in the home straight and crossed the line in splendid isolation from her Godolphin stable companions Lovely Pass and Music Chart. Runner-up to Lovely Pass in the Guineas, Shuruq thus became the 27th Graded and Group winner by her sire, Darley’s Elusive Quality. By Godolphin’s Group 1 Sussex Stakes ace Noverre, Shuruq’s dam Miss Lucifer won the Group 2 Challenge Stakes and shares her grandam High Spirited with the Group 1 1000 Guineas heroine Virginia Waters. High Spirited’s full-sister High Hawk won the Group 1 Premio Roma before producing the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf ace In The Wings, whilst another close relative, Zomaradah was successful in the Group 1 Oaks d’Italia and is dam of Darley’s fine young sire Dubawi.

Fillies To The Fore Kiwi-bred fillies battled out the finish to Ellerslie’s ARC New Zealand Derby, Iffraaj’s daughter Fix wresting the lead from the gelding Castlzeberg entering the final 150m only to be headed by Habibi in the dying strides. Success in the NZ$750,000 event was Habibi’s sixth in seven starts, victories in the Group 2 Great Northern Guineas and Group 2 Championship Stakes at the turn of the year preceding a close third in the Group 2 Avondale Guineas. The brown filly is by Ekraar, who carried Hamdan Al Maktoum’s colours to victory in the 2003 Group 1 Gran Premio del Jockey Club. The son of Red Ransom has also sired the Group 1 heroines Shez Sinsational and Ekstreme, the former winning for the fourth time at the highest level when successful in October’s HBRInc Spring Classic.

AKHBAR AL KHAIL (ERA Official Weekly Racing Calendar) – Sunday March 3, 13 - Issue 19

Declaration Of Gear And Gear Changes Trainers are reminded of their obligations to declare all gear that a horse is to race in at Declaration time. This also includes a declaration for the use of equipment for the first time (e.g., B1), a change of equipment (e.g., P2), or the discontinuance of use of equipment (SR-). Where a horse is having its first start in this region, the Trainer should make every endeavour to ascertain what gear the horse carried at its most recent start outside of the UAE, so that accurate information as to each horse’s gear or gear changes is declared for its first start here. Also, for shoeing changes, Trainers are reminded that they must inform the Stewards of any non-standard shoes that a horse will carry (e.g., glue-ons, heart bars etc). Failure to declare accurate gear or gear change details in the required manner, will render the Trainer liable to a fine under the Rules. STEWARDS ENQUIRY ERA (Meydan Office). Tuesday February 26, 2013 The Stewards of the Emirates Racing Authority today conducted an inquiry into a report from the Equine Forensic Unit (EFU), that the urine sample taken from AMANEE (AUS) after it was placed 2nd in Race 5, the Group 2 Cape Verdi, at Meydan Racecourse on 24 January 2013, was found to contain the prohibited substance “Methocarbamol”. Evidence was taken from the horse’s Trainer Mr M de Kock, Equine Forensic Unit Chief Analyst Mr P Albert, and ERA Veterinary Steward Dr D Sykes. After considering the evidence placed before them, the Stewards were satisfied that the findings of the EFU and the confirmatory analysis carried out by the Singapore Turf Club Laboratory, proved that AMANEE (AUS) had raced with the prohibited substance “Methocarbamol” in its system in Race 5 at Meydan 24 January 2013. As such, acting under the provisions of ERA Rule 86(ii), the Stewards disqualified AMANEE (AUS) from its 2nd placing in Race 5 at Meydan 24 January 2013, and amended the official placings as follows: 1st SAJJHAA (GB) 2nd FIRST CITY (GB) 3rd FALLS OF LORA (IRE) Furthermore, the Stewards found Mr M de Kock in breach of ERA Rule 95A 2, in that he as the Trainer of AMANEE (AUS) did present the horse to race in Race 5 at Meydan 24 January 2013, with the prohibited substance “Methocarbamol” found to be in the horse’s system upon analysis. The Stewards fined Mr M de Kock the sum of AED 10,000. Against these decisions, the connections of AMANEE (AUS) have the right of appeal. STEWARDS REPORTS Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club. Sunday February 24, 2013 Race 1. Abu Samrah 1600m Jockey S Hitchcott was fined AED 500 for breaching ERA Rule 57(iii) in that he was unable to fulfill his engagement on ATAB (AE). Trainer Mr B Al Ketbi was fined AED 250 under the provisions of ERA Rule 51(v) in that he did not properly engage Jockey K O’Neill prior to declaring him to ride JANBAR W’RSAN (AE). DHABABAH (AE) (M Monaghan) was slow to begin and was then reluctant to race in the early stages. AS POLIT (AE) (P Cosgrave) began awkwardly and then raced waywardly in the early stages. AF MUJERAH (AE) (G Avranche) raced keenly in the early stages. TAYR AL ABABIL (AE) (A Nicholls) hung outwards making the bend at the 1000m. MAHA W’RSAN (AE) (C Sanchez) hung outwards making the home bend. Jockey R Mullen reported that FAROOQ (AE) hung outwards throughout. CERCINA (AE) (J Rosales) was impeded for clear running and was eased approaching the finishing line between ATAB (AE) (X Ziani), which veered inwards, and ERRADA (AE) (T O’Shea), which drifted outwards. A post-race veterinary examination of AL HARQA W’RSAN (AE) (J Santiago), which compounded badly from leaving the 800m, revealed no abnormalities. Apprentice M Monaghan (DHABABAH [AE]) was reprimanded for breaching ERA Instruction 8(ii)(c)(vii) in that he used his whip without giving his mount time to respond. Race 2. Emirates Colts Classic (Prestige) 1600m SADAN (AE) (T Durcan) began awkwardly and then raced waywardly in the early stages. Leaving the 1300m, SHARIS (AE) (J Rosales) shifted inwards momentarily crowding WALD JOHNNY (AE) (R Ffrench) and MH AREEB (AE) (X Ziani), and then approaching the 1200m, SHARIS (AE) ran outwards impeding MEHAJJ W’RSAN (AE) (R Mullen). Race 3. Al Khatim 2200m FRYNCHMAN (US) (P Cosgrave) began awkwardly and was then crowded shortly after between TAKAAMUL (GB) (D O’Neill) and AF ASASI (AE) (S Al Reffai). Jockey K Fallon (JARNIN [FR]) was fined AED 2500 for breaching ERA Instruction 8(ii)(c)(i) in that he used his whip in the forehand position forward of the saddle. Race 4. Arabian Triple Crown Round 2 (Group 3) 2200m LAAMMA (FR) (H Bentley) began awkwardly and then raced keenly in the early stages.

Race 5. Wathba Stud Farm Cup For Private Owners Only 2200m MH DHAWI (AE) (H Bentley) was fractious in the starting gates and then reared as the gates opened. Trainer Ms S Al Ghurair was advised that MH DHAWI (AE) would be required to complete a satisfactory stalls test prior to it being permitted to be entered to race again. SICERTARYA (AE) (P Cosgrave) began awkwardly and then refused to race and took no part in the race. Trainer Mr A Manuel was advised that SICERTARYA (AE) would be required to complete a satisfactory stalls test and to complete a racecourse gallop to the satisfaction of the Stewards prior to it being permitted to be entered to race again. NAWASI ALKEER (AE) (J Rosales) was slow to begin. UNIQUE DE LA GARDE (FR) (R Ffrench) was slow to begin and then raced very keenly in the early stages. Near the 2100m, MH LAZZAZ (AE) (C Sandoval) ran outwards, and as a result, MUDAF’E (AE) (T O’Shea) veered outwards abruptly, impeding AF QAMOOS (AE) (G Avranche). Jockey T O’Shea reported that in this incident, the bit slipped through the mouth of MUDAF’E (AE) and he then had difficulty trying to control the horse, and the horse was pulled up in the home straight. Jockey J Doyle reported that JOYOUS DREAM (FR) hung outwards throughout. Jockey G Avranche (AF QAMOOS [AE]) was fined AED 2500 for breaching ERA Instruction 8(ii)(c)(vii) and (viii) in that he used his whip without giving his mount time to respond, and with his whip arm above shoulder height.

MEYDAN REVIEW (THURSDAY)

by Mark Jackson

Memorable treble for Godolphin H

H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was in the parade ring to witness his Godolphin operation dominate both feature races at the eighth meeting of the 2013 Dubai World Cup Carnival at Meydan last Thursday evening. Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor added to his phenomenal record in the Group 3 UAE Oaks with Shuruq supplying him with an eighth victory. Second in both the UAE 1000 Guineas Trial and UAE 1000 Guineas, the filly was able to reverse the form of both those races when chasing home Godolphin-owned duo Music Chart (Trial over 1400m) and Lovely Pass (Guineas over 1600m). They are both trained by Mahmoud Al Zarooni and Lovely Pass was second on this occasion, one place ahead of Music Chart to give Godolphin a 1-2-3. Paul Hanagan rode the winner and Bin Suroor has yet to decide on future plans for her, although she could try and emulate stable companion, Khawlah who won both this race and the UAE Derby in 2011. She remains the only filly to have completed the double. “My initial thought is that we are likely to take her back to England but we will all have to sit down and talk about it, said the trainer.

“These conditions clearly suit her so the UAE Derby is at least a consideration.” Earlier Al Zarooni was saying virtually the same thing after Now Spun made a winning local debut in the Listed Meydan Classic, a 3yo turf race over 1600m. Beaten on his debut in England, he won his second start and was making it two wins from only three outings with a smooth victory under Mickael Barzalona. Al Zarooni said: “The UAE Derby has to be a possibility but he clearly goes well on turf and has won both his races on the grass. Sheikh Mohammed and Simon Crisford will have the final say.” Barzalona was completing a double having earlier initiated a brace for Bin Suroor when steering Kassiano to a very easy victory in the opening 2200m Tapeta handicap. It was a third 2013 victory for the fast improving 4yo and Bin Suroor said: “He is going to have to go up in grade after that which was a very impressive effort. We will have to try and find one more race for him on this surface he has thrived on.” Another horse set to go back up in class is the Ali Rashid Al Raihe-trained Mufarrh, runner-up in the 2011 Godolphin Mile but who missed the whole of last

season after injury. He won a 1600m Tapeta handicap under Hanagan who was initiating his own double in the process and said: “The horse has a touch of class but keeps losing ground at the stalls. He has plenty of ability and that should have done his confidence a lot of good. “It would be nice to get him back to the Godolphin Mile.” Dhruba Selvaratnam opened his 2013 Dubai World Cup Carnival

account with stable jockey James Doyle aboard United Color who finished fast and late to win the 1200m Tapeta handicap. Doyle said: “It was his first start on this surface and he has relished it. “I guess we will be back on Super Saturday.” The trainer was denied a double in the concluding 1400m turf handicap when his Jaasoos was second, just as he had been 12 months ago, to the Mike de

Kock-trained Anaerobio. De Kock’s runner was finally opening his local account at the eleventh attempt. Pat Cosgrave rode the winner and said: “He has run so many good races in defeat and really deserved to finally win one. This trip has really suited him and the yard are in good form.”

MEYDAN REVIEW (SATURDAY)

T

RADE Storm scored a remarkable victory in the Group 2 Zabeel Mile, the 1600m turf feature at the ninth meeting of the Dubai World Cup Carnival last Saturday evening. Slowly away under Jamie Spencer, the David Simcock-trained Trade Storm was last as the eight runners turned for home but, just as he and Spencer had done in a 1800m handicap two weeks ago, he passed all his rivals to win easily. The difference was, on that occasion, he challenged wide down the centre of the track whereas this time he weaved through rivals under a clearly elated jockey. “You have to be impressed by that,” said Spencer. “I wanted to track Musir but we missed the kick so I was further back than I intended but he was always going well. As we turned for home I was looking for a gap and when we found one we were able to get through and he showed a great turn of foot. “David has really done well with this horse who seems to be improving and has thrived in the Dubai weather.” Old rivals Ahzeemah, Certerach and Star Empire fought out the finish of the Group 3 Nad Al Sheba Trophy, just as they did in a handicap over the same 2810m turf course and distance just over three weeks previously. On that occasion Star Empire came out on top but this time it was Godolphin’s Ahzeemah with Kieren Fallon in the saddle for trainer Saeed bin Suroor. They just

Trade Storms to victory Pick 6 Favourites

Trade Storm held the determined challenge of Irish raider Certerach, with Star Empire third. Fallon said: “There was not as much pace on so I was happy to hit the front early in the straight and he was very game. He will certainly stay further.” Bin Suroor added: “He will be better over further and I will talk to Sheikh Mohammed but I think the Dubai Gold Cup over 3200m would be an ideal race for him on World Cup night. “He is still a young horse and is hopefully still improving.” Jockey and trainer doubled up with the equally brave victory of

Quick Wit in the concluding 2000m turf handicap. Christophe Soumillon and Mike de Kock may have been denied with Musir and Star Empire in the big races but they also registered a double apiece. Soumillon always appeared supremely confident on the De Kock-trained Kavanagh in the opening 1200m turf handicap and the pair quickened well to lead 200m out and post a comfortable victory. Runner-up in the Group 3 Al Shindgha Sprint (Tapeta) on his previous start, he was opening his UAE account at the fourth time of

asking and Soumillon said: “That is the perfect start to what we hope will be a good evening. I was always going best and it was just a case of timing the challenge right.” They then followed up with Rerouted in a 1400m all-weather handicap to register a second course and distance win this year. Spain opened their 2013 account with the last gasp success of Plantagenet in a 2000m Tapeta handicap named in honour of 2010 Dubai World Cup winner Gloria De Campeao. It was a second course and distance win for the horse who also won a similar race last February. Jose Martinez was in the saddle for

ABU DHABI REVIEW (SUNDAY)

by Mark Jackson

Canwinn does so J

EBEL ALI-based trainer Dhruba Selvaratnam looks set to finish the season with a flourish and his Canwinn landed the most valuable race at Abu Dhabi last Sunday evening, the concluding 1600m handicap and only Thoroughbred race on the card. A double at Jebel Ali nine days previously had doubled the trainer’s tally for the season before he opened his 2013 Dubai World Cup Carnival account with United Color the previous Thursday when stable companion Jaasoos also went close. As happens so often at Abu Dhabi, it was a blanket finish but James Doyle was able to drive Canwinn to the front in the final 100m and they were then all out to hold the late challenge of Musaafer, with long-time leader Encipher battling on grimly and recent course and distance winner Mujrayaat all involved in a thrilling finish. Doyle said: “We were badly drawn in 14 so have

Ibn Battuta Monlau

had to take our time. He stays further and needs all of the 1600m to get there. The horses are running well and hopefully we can end the season well.” Eric Lemartinel supplied a 1-2 in the 2200m handicap with stable jockey Gerald Avranche landing the spoils on Ibn Battuta Monlau who was chased home by Wayne Smith on Simbar Du Loup. Well beaten on his previous start over 1600m, the winner relished the return to this longer trip and Avranche explained: “He is a big horse who takes a while to get going and stays well. “The 1600m was too short for him last time and it is a great result for Eric and the team to provide the second as well.” Thirty minutes later it looked as though the pair would complete a quick double with their Mooser leading close home, only to be caught in the final strides by the Jaber Bittar-trained Kana’An with Daragh O’Donohoe in the saddle. Last turning for home, the winner

was able to weave through runners down the centre of the track, before switching to the far rail for the final decisive effort. O’Donohoe said: “That was not the plan as I was told to sit quite handy but they just went too quick for me so I let him float around at the back. We were lucky in the straight with the gaps opening when we needed. “Once we went to the rail he picked up nicely and I always thought we would just get there.” Champion Jockey Tadhg O’Shea was another forced to revert to Plan B after his mount Richlore missed the break in the following 1600m conditions race. Forced to take their time after that slow start, they finished with a real flourish to lead close home to the relief of O’Shea who said: “The idea was to race quite prominently but that slow start forced us to look for an alternative plan. “Luckily, she is a very useful filly and things worked out in the end.

“She is a real prospect for next season as she has plenty of ability.” They caught the Gill Duffieldtrained Djanet Monlau (who faded into third) but the trainer gained compensation in the following 1000m handicap with Sam Hitchcott never far off the pace on AF Lafeh. Well beaten on his sole previous start, on the Jebel Ali dirt

Canwinn in November, the Samir Hawaa-trained Tha’er clearly appreciated the switch to turf to register a narrow victory in the opening 1600m maiden with Carlos Sanchez aboard. It was the trainer’s first winner since the 2009/10 season and the horse deserved a lot of credit, leading early on before being headed 400m out before battling back to lead close home.

Scoring System : 10 Points for win, 5 points for 2nd, 2 points for 3rd

LL eyes will be on Russian Rock as he bids not only to defend his Listed Jebel Ali Sprint crown but, for a second year, to complete a clean sweep of the track’s three feature races for his connections who have already won both the Jebel Ali Stakes and Mile with Treble Jig, just as they did 12 months ago. Sporting the now famous colours of Fathi Esaed Mohd Egziama, he is trained by Musabah Al Muhairi and will again be ridden by Wayne Smith. If he does win again, he will become only the second horse to win the race, first run in 1994, twice. As was the case last year, the Musabah Al Muhairi-trained sprinter arrives here having won the prep race over the same 1000m course and distance three weeks ago. He was chased home on that occasion by his old rival Kilt Rock, third in this race last year and his connections will be hoping their speedster can finally finish in front of a horse who has certainly proved his nemesis, finishing in front of him on all seven occasions they have clashed with Russian Rock winning five of those contests. His trainer, Doug Watson, also saddles Oasis Dancer who was an excellent second over 1400m a fortnight ago on his first start for the yard and on dirt. Third in that prep was Sholaan, trained on the course by Dhruba Selvaratnam and it would be no

Russian Rock surprise to see him in the frame again with that second run of the season under his belt on what was his dirt debut. A very useful sprinter in England, he was an excellent fifth at the Meydan Carnival on his local bow and the yard have really hit form in the last 10 days. He looks a big danger to all. Spin Cycle won this race in 2011 for Satish Seemar but has not won since. He will be ridden by apprentice Marc Monaghan who, because the race carries Listed status, cannot utilise his weight allowance. Seemar also saddles arguably the most interesting runner in the shape of Temple Meads, having his first outing for the trainer having formerly been trained by David Brown for whom he was an excellent second

on the first night of the Meydan Carnival. He has not fired in two subsequent outings but, if taking to the dirt which he tries for the first time, he looks an exiting new recruit and jockey Richard Mullen knows the horse well having won two big prizes on him in the UK. The best of the handicaps is the concluding one over 1600m and the Selvaratnam-trained Kessraa, seeking his third course win of the season, shares top-weight. Both his wins this campaign have been over 1400m but he has won over this trip and should go well. The Musabah Al Muhairitrained Trojan Nights shares that weight burden with him and it looks significant that stable jockey Wayne Smith partners Interpret who gets weight from all his eight rivals.

Remotelinx was a touch unlucky last time and will bid to go one better and Baransky has also shown more than enough ability to finish in the frame today. (Harry Tregoning) SELECTIONS . 1. Momaris 2.

MEYDAN PREVIEW (SUPER SATURDAY)

By Lucky Name

Super Saturday – self explanatory really G ODOLPHIN’S 2012 Dubai World Cup winner Monterosso makes his eagerly awaited seasonal reappearance in the Group 1 third and concluding round of the Al Maktoum Challenge, the highlight of this evening’s Super Saturday card. Over the same 2000m Tapeta course and distance as the world’s richest horse race, the $10million Dubai World Cup, Monterosso has reappeared on this card in each of the last two seasons, finishing fourth in this last year having won the Dubai City Of Gold in 2011. However, jockey Mickael Barzalona, in the saddle for World Cup victory last year, is aboard stable companion Saint Baudolino with Ahmed Ajtebi, who won this race last year on the Al Zarooni-trained Capponi, on Monterosso. Saint Baudolino, was fourth in the Group 2 middle round of the Maktoum Challenge on his first start for the trainer, in a race won by another Godolphin contender, the Saeed bin Suroor-trained Hunter’s Light. Perhaps significantly, the trainer has won this trial with subsequent Dubai World Cup winners Dubai Millennium, Street Cry and Electrocutionist in the past and also saddles Kassiano, Mendip and Prince Bishop this year. American Dale Romans, who saddled 2005 Dubai World Cup winner Roses In May, relies on Little Mike with Kieren Fallon, fresh from a double for Godolphin last Saturday, a positive jockey booking.

Japan’s Trailblazer is a Grade 2 winner on turf and South African Mike de Kock, who has saddled the winner of this race twice before, has two ex-Ballydoyle inmates among the 13 declared with Treasure Beach joined by last year’s UAE Derby winner Daddy Long Legs. The second Thoroughbred Group 1 on the card is the 1800m Jebel Hatta, and the turf feature has attracted a quality field of 10, including De Kock’s The Apache, winner of the Group 2 Al Rashidiya over course and distance on his only previous UAE start. He will be ridden by Christophe Soumillon, with Pat Cosgrave on Master Of Hounds but it is the booking of Anthony Delpech for the trainer’s third runner, Igugu, which really catches the eye – the pair having won both of South Africa’s major races, the Durban July and the J & B Met

when she was declared Horse of the Year last season. The Apache has been drawn widest of all in a race which also features Godolphin’s Sajjhaa, winner of the Group 2 Cape Verdi and Group 2 Balanchine Stakes already this season. She is trained by Saeed bin Suroor but it looks significant that Silvestre de Sousa, who was in the saddle for both those wins, is aboard Sharestan on whom he was third to The Apache having won the Al Rashidiya Trial on his seasonal debut. The third Group 1 on the card is the opening Al Maktoum Challenge III for the Purebred Arabians with Nieshan back to defend the crown he won last year when Seraphin Du Paon was third. Both should go close with Versac Py and Naseem looking strong challengers, along with local debutant Rich Frynchman.

Medicean Man, Russian Soul and last year’s winner Invincible Ash are others with fitness on their side. The likes of Sole Power, Monsieur Joe and Dandy Boy are entitled to improve for the run.

With a good low draw, last year’s winner Krypton Factor looks the obvious starting point and Hitchens, who chased him home 12 months ago, is certainly another to consider. Time Prisoner and Reynaldothewizard are others to consider, along with Balmont Mast.Jaasoos should not be underestimated with the yard having hit form and Ganas is better than was able to show last time.

Seemingly a lot more runners than potential winners and 2012 victor African Story looks the one to beat. American raider Dullahan heads the dangers, along with Moonwalk In Paris and Aesop’s Fables, like African Story both owned by Godolphin. Barbecue Eddie and Royal Ridge look the best of Sheikh Hamdan’s runners. SELECTIONS . 1. African Story 2. Royal Ridge 3. Dullahan

Pick 6 Analysis If Little Mike handles the surface he has to be a live contender with last year’s Dubai World Cup winner Monterosso, fourth in this last year, likely to need the run. Jockey bookings suggest a big run is expected from Saint Baudolino but he has ground to make up on the same owner’s Hunter’s Light. Kassiano has been ultra progressive this year, while Surfer continues to improve with racing. SELECTIONS . 1. Hunter’s Light

ABU DHABI PREVIEW (SUNDAY)

By Brett Williams

E-mail: albasti@equiworld.ae - web: www.albasti.ae

Abu Dhabi 10 March 2013 Stable / Organization

Areem looks the one

I

T’S the penultimate meeting of the 2012/13 season from Abu Dhabi this Sunday where the Grade 1 Liwa Oasis, over 1400m, is the highlight on a six-race card which, as usual, features plenty of opportunities for Pick Six players to take home some valuable dosh! Majed Al Jahouri has enjoyed a terrific season and is set to saddle no fewer than four of the ten-strong field. Areem, under Ahmed Ajtebi, carries the first silks of his owner HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, which is understandable bearing in mind the 5yo entire has won his last three starts in decisive fashion, including the first leg of the Al Maktoum Challenge (Group 1) when last seen in January. It’s slightly off putting however, that the son of Mahabb hasn’t been seen since then, suggesting he may have missed some work, but if on song, he will surely be hard to beat.

Harry Bentley has also struck up a fine association with the Al Jahouri stable and will be aboard Thakif whom he steered to an easy success in the Group 3 Al Ruwais at the same course last time. A model of consistency, sporting the white cap of his owner, the 5yo homebred will produce his usual bold show. TM Super Bird should also not be discounted having run an absolute cracker on his UAE bow in the Bani Yas at Meydan last time and he appears to have a decent draw in gate number four, therefore, should go well again under Ted Durcan who retains the ride. Others to consider in what looks a wide open race include Mestor who would have a squeak on his best efforts, while Burning Fancy would need to step up on her debut for the Gill Duffield stable last time, but has solid form from the

UK and, if back to her best, should not be ignored under Tadhg O’Shea who seems to do well on fillies trained by Duffield. The final round of the Arabian Triple Crown complements the card perfectly and 11 runners have been declared to face the starter over the 2400m trip. Skoop, trained by Ernst Oertel, won the UAE Arabian Derby on his latest outing in public, is unbeaten two from two, and is clearly a very exciting addition to the Arabian ranks in the UAE. Partnered by Tadhg O’Shea, the 4yo chestnut already has a verdict over the re-opposing Merzal from France and there is no reason, at the weights, why that form should be reversed. Vazs Mane Son made a pleasing Emirates debut for Omani trainer Salim Al Hakmani in the Arabian Derby (behind Skoop) last time, but conceding

weight all around will not be easy, but he does at least have more experience on his side which could put him in good stead here. A maximum field of 14 contests the Thoroughbred race with Erwan Charpy saddling the maiden, Fa’iz (Sam Hitchcott) and The Barbarian King (Gerald

Avranche) who makes his racecourse debut. They both look opposable here in favour of the likes of Cool Wind, who has been knocking at the door and has her first try on the Abu Dhabi turf, while Covert Desire and Chibchan look the main protagonists.
