Red Ransom Adds Dubai Gr2

Friday, 3rd March 2006

In Dubai overnight, Vinery Stud stallion Red Ransom (Roberto-Arabia, by Damascus) added a group success when 5YO entire Electrocutionist (Red Ransom-Elbaaha, by Arazi) marked his debut for Godolphin with a stunning 7-lengths slaughter of his rivals in the US$300,000 Gr2 Sheikh Maktoum bid Rashid al Maktoum Challenge Round III (2000m) at Nad al Sheba. Having his 1st start on dirt, last year's Gr1 Juddmonte International winner Electrocutionist (ridden by Franki Dettori for trainer Saeed Bin Suroor) defeated Argentine-bred Saudi-Arabian-trained fellow 5YO entire Chiquitin (Fitzcarraldo-Murias, by Big Play) & UK-bred 5YO entire Elmustanser (Machiavellian-Elfaslah, by Green Desert). Godolphin has won this race in the past with Dubai Millennium & Street Cry, both of whom went on to win the Gr1 Dubai World Cup (3 weeks away on March 25).
