Cracksman In Line for Dubai

Thursday, 25th January 2018

John Gosden is seemingly contemplating kicking off star UK galloper Cracksman's 4YO campaign early after entering him in the Gr1 Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan in March, reports Racing Post. The prodigiously talented Cracksman, who became the first European Group 1 winner for his sire Frankel when posting a stunning win in the Champion Stakes (10 furlongs) on British Champions Day at Ascot in October, has been cantering at Newmarket in recent weeks ahead of a possible start in the US$6 million feature. Cracksman (Frankel-Rhadegunda, by Pivotal), who races in the same colours as owner Anthony Oppenheimer's champion galloper Golden Horn, is currently rated a 13-8 chance for the Sheema Classic.
