Dubai Destination Adds US Black-Type
In the US, dual Gr1-winning former Darley shuttler Dubai Destination (Kingmambo-Mysterial, by Alleged) added a black-type success when Irish-bred 5YO gelding Dhaamer (Dubai Destination-Arjuzah, by Ahonoora) finished strongly from the rear of the field to score a 4.5-lengths victory in the US$73,000 Listed Round Table Handicap (14 furlongs on turf) at Hollywood Park in California. Dhaamer (ridden by Joel Rosario for trainer Mike Mitchell) defeated 4YO mare Quaintly (Giant's Causeway-Measure, by Seeking The Gold) & Chilean-bred 10-year-old entire Porfido (Mash One-Piazza Venezia, by Roy). Dhaamer was a 30,000 guineas (A$47,000) purchase at the 2011 UK Tattersalls Horses-In--Training Sale. Overall he now has 4 wins & 3 placings (including March's Gr3 Tokyo City Cup Handicap over 12 furlongs at Santa Anita Park) from 13 starts for US$114,204 earnings.
