One comment

  1. I thought Friday was an excellent day of racing at Meydan, and I’m looking forward to Saturday’s card as well!! I thought all 6 races on Friday were ultra-competitive!! If seen a lot of comments giving Christophe Soumillon a lot of flack about his front running tactics on Mahbooba in the Cape Verdi today. I’ll have to admit, I thought Soumillon would let the stablemate Reem go to the front and then he’d likely sit Mahbooba right off of her, and take a toe from her through the race. But other than being surprised that he went to the front with Mahbooba, I thought he rode a good race on her. Certainly no disgrace getting nailed on the wire by a mare the quality of First City. Mike De Kock’s been anyone who would listen this week that he was more concerned about First City than any other filly or mare in the Cape Verdi field. He said she had solid G1 form, and that she impressed him with her 3rd place finish in the G1 Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket. The same race De Kock’s mare, River Jetez, finished 5th in. I also thought Prince Bishop looked much the best in his race today, too. I think having been gelded since he ran in Dubai a year ago has really helped this horse. But a horse that’s obviously been flying under the radar some that I really took notice of after today is the Mubarak Bin Shafya trained, Jamr. He barely held off a fine late closing effort from Measuring Time, but it was a win nonetheless, and his third straight win at Meydan on tapeta. Jamr’s won 1 time at 10f, and 2 times now at 11f. He’s also got a 2nd place finish on Lingfield’s all-weather track over 12f back in July. So distance doesn’t seem to be an issue for him, and he clearly loves a synthetic surface. I definitely have a couple of as-treks beside his name now on “cheat sheet.”!!
