Dolniya Wins Gr1 Dubai Sheema Classic
At Meydan racecourse in Dubai, Brighthill Farm's ill-fated shuttler and multiple Gr1 winner Azamour (Night Shift-Asmara, by Lear Fan) celebrated a Gr1 success when the Aga Khan's 4YO mare Dolniya (Azamour-Daltama, by Indian Ridge) scored by 2.25-lengths for trainer Alain de Royer Dupre in the US$6 million Gr1 Dubai Sheema Classic (2400m) for 3YO+, over 5YO UK-bred entire Flintshire (Dansili-Dance Routine, by Sadler's Wells) & 4YO Japanese entire One And Only (Heart's Cry-Virtue, by Taiki Shuttle). This was the first Gr1 victory for Dolniya who took her record to 5 wins and 2 placings (including the Gr1 Prix Vermeille) from 8 starts.
