What a great result up at York this afternoon! The talented LUSAIL lands another group 2 victory in the Gimcrack under jockey Pat Dobbs. Despite carrying a 3lb penalty for his win in the July stakes he burst through to win by a comfortable 1 1/4 lengths.
Richard said "He's very uncomplicated. I bought him here for his maiden, I didn't fancy him, that's probably a bit shambolic (as he won) but he's a horse that hides away and doesn't show loads. I'm delighted with that. He's won with a penalty and that's a pretty tough target to put on a two-year-old, but he's one of our two-year-olds that I think will be one for next year. He gets seven furlongs and I see him as a (2000) Guineas horse. We'll put him in the Dewhurst and all those races. They are all on the table now and we can look forward to them."
Huge congratulations to Al Shaqab Racing and connections - he looks a very exciting horse for next year!
