Redoute's Son 2nd As E Dubai Adds UAE Black-Type
Also in Dubai overnight, Gr1-winning former Darley shuttler E Dubai (Mr Prospector-Words Of War, by Lord At War) added a black-type success when Godolphin's UK-bred 5YO entire Skysurfers (E Dubai-Fortune, by Night Shift) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the US$175,000 Listed Firebreak Stakes (1600m on all-weather) at Meydan, to claim this race for the 2nd successive year. Skysurfers (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Saeed Bin Suroor) defeated favoured Australian-bred 4YO entire Musir (Redoute's Choice-Dizzy De Lago, by Encosta De Lago) & South African-bred 6YO gelding Imbongi (Russian Revival-Garden Verse, by Foveros). Last year Skysurfers also finished runner-up in both the UK Listed Fortune Stakes (8 furlongs) at Sandown Park & Listed City Of York Stakes (7 furlongs) at York, as well as 3rd in both the UAE Gr2 Godolphin Mile (1600m on all-weather) at Meydan & UK Listed On The House Stakes (8 furlongs) at Goodwood.
