DUBAI---Prince Bishop pulled away
from race favourite California Chrome
on the home straight to win the $10
million Dubai World Cup by two and
three-quarter lengths in the United
Arab Emirates, yesterday.
Starting from the rail, William Buick
rode Prince Bishop to the horse s first
victory on dirt, at his fourth attempt
at the world s richest horse race.
Buick said he felt numb.
"I can t express what I am feeling
right now," he said. "It s very surreal.
We were detached last, but ended up
traveling very well in the last turn. I
didn t look back, but I imagine we won
well because I could hear the commen-
tator. I feel a bit numb at the moment,
but I m sure when I get home and relax
it will sink in."
The eight-year-old Prince Bishop
was bred in Ireland, but has been
trained by Saeed bin Suroor in the Emi-
rates. He beat the Art Sherman-trained
favorite on Meydan Racecourse s new
In third place came another Amer-
ican, Lea, who was saddled by William
Mott, the US trainer who led Cigar to
victory at the inaugural Dubai World
Cup in 1996.
California Chrome, the US horse of
the year, has not won on dirt since the
Preakness Stakes last year. The four-
year-old 2014 Kentucky Derby winner,
ridden by Victor Espinoza, was running
in second behind Hokko Tarumae going
into the final leg, but could not keep
pace when Prince Bishop attacked.
Earlier, Christophe Soumillon rode
Dolniya to victory in the $6 million
Dubai Sheema Classic, having earlier
won the $2 million UAE Derby atop
Mubtaahij, the four-year-old Irish-bred
Mubtaahji, trained by a South African
and ridden by a Frenchman, is likely
headed next to the Kentucky Derby in
Louisville, Kentucky, on May 2, trainer
Mike de Kock said.
"We ll be there," de Kock said.
Mubtaahij, sent off as the favourite
in the field of ten, followed pace-setters
Golden Barrows and Tap That before
jockey Soumillon took off with his colt
and blew away the competition with
an eight-length victory.
The horse is owned by Sheikh
Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum,
nephew of Godolphin owner Sheikh
Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Solow, sired by 1997 Dubai World
Cup winner Singspiel, won the $6 mil-
lion Dubai Turf by four-and-a-quarter
lengths ahead of favourite The Grey
"This was a big test, as it was his
first Group 1 race," Solow trainer Freddy
Head said. "I couldn t have had him
better, and he showed what a good
horse he is. Maxime Guyon rode him
perfectly, very quiet, very cool."
Espinoza claimed a win for the United
States atop Secret Circle in the $2 mil-
lion Dubai Golden Shaheen, while Sole
Power beat Peniaphobia to take the $1
million Al Quoz Sprint.
Brown Panther, owned by former
Liverpool and Real Madrid footballer
Michael Owen, comfortably won the
Dubai Gold Cup, Tamarkuz took the
$1 million Godolphin Mile, and Manark
triumphed in the $6 million Dubai
Kahayla Classic. (AP)
Gabrial showed a touch of class and
the heart for a battle to win the Betway
Lincoln at Doncaster, yesterday.
Mondialiste was a determined foe
for the David O Meara team, but once
that rival was subdued, Gabrial was in
pole position, eventually winning by a
Moohaarib finished third, while What
About Carlo finished third.
Hamilton said: "He needs a strong
gallop and he stays well."
It was a second Lincoln in four years
for Hamilton, Fahey and owner, Dr
Marwan Koukash, and the latter was
over the moon.
"When I started off in racing I always
wanted to win the big handicaps,
Cesarewitch, Ayr Gold Cup and the
Lincoln," said Koukash.
"When I first met Richard I asked
what race he would like to win the most
and he said it was this one. Now we ve
done it twice so I m delighted."
Fahey said: "They raced in a very
tight pack and I wasn t sure he was
going to get out in time.
"That s the first time I ve ever seen
him really pin his ears back and have
a real go as he s a bit of a character.
"Tony said he always felt like he was
going to win.
"The only reason he was running
over further last year was because after
Mount Athos got injured. Marwan
wanted a Melbourne Cup horse but he
didn t stay.
"He s a Listed winner and while I
doubt he s getting better, we ll hatch a
plan and see where we go, I presume
it will be Chester."
At which point, Koukash responded:
"He ll go to the Huxley Stakes over ten
furlongs at Chester."
