Australian-bred 4YO mare Raihana (Elusive Quality-Esubooh, by Sunday Silence) also scored over 1800m at Meydan in Dubai overnight for trainer Mike de Kock. Sheik Mohammed bin Khalifa Saeed Al Maktoum originally purchased her unraced dam Esubooh (Sunday Silence-Felicitation, by Danehill) at the 2003 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney for $350,000. Last year Raihana finished 2nd in the UAE Derby, after winning the UAE 1000 Guineas & overall now boasts 4 wins from 10 starts.
