Winx Entered for Dubai

Thursday, 8th February 2018

Champion mare Winx features among the nominations for next month's US$6 million Gr1 Dubai Turf (1800m) in Dubai. The Dubai Turf will be run on the world's richest day of racing, Dubai World Cup night, to be held at Meydan racecourse on Saturday, 31 March 2018. If Winx does compete in the UAE it would be a huge coup for the Dubai racing carnival, however it seems highly unlikely with Chris Waller previously stating that no decision regarding an international campaign will be made until after she runs in the Gr1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) in Sydney on 24 March. Other Australian horses that hold entries on World Cup night include Gr1 winning sprinters Hey Doc, Music Magnate and Viddora (US$1 million Gr1 Al Quoz Sprint), and Abbey Marie, Coldstone and Wyndspelle (US$10 million Gr1 Dubai World Cup).
