Kinsale King ready for title defence

It was a busy week in Dubai racing last week, so we catch up with news from the sprinting division.  2010 Dubai Golden Shaheen victor Kinsale King earned his first win since that race when making his seasonal debut last week, and he did it on the same surface he’ll revisit at Meydan.  Racing last Thursday at Golden Gate Fields in northern California, Kinsale King broke just a bit slow and eased into contention before pulling clear under a hand ride from new jockey Mike Smith.  Trainer Carl O’Callaghan declared his charge ready to go.  Steve Andersen has more from the Daily Racing Form.

  1. I heard Kinsale King’s trainer talking about him just last night on America’s HRTV. He said Kinsale King is in fine fettle right now. He said he thought the surface switch from synthetics to conventional dirt was why Kinsale King didn’t run as well as they had hoped in the Breeders Cup Sprint back in November. The trainer said that they’re going to run Kinsale King in a race at Golden Gate, then he’ll be shipped to Dubai to defend his Golden Shaheen crown.
