The Entisar sponsored by Hamdan bin Mohammed Cruise Terminal has attracted a field of nine!
Racing at Meydan on Thursday evening is undoubtedly the best fixture of the new season thus far, featuring a pair of Listed contests with proven Dubai World Cup Carnival runners set to be joined by those with aspirations for the 2021 international extravaganza.
Over the same 2,000m on dirt as the Dubai World Cup itself, The Entisar sponsored by Hamdan bin Mohammed Cruise Terminal has attracted a field of nine with all eyes likely to be focused on the enigmatic Pakistan Star, making both his local and dirt debut having joined Doug Watson after a varied career in Hong Kong.
The seven-year-old Shamardal gelding was foaled in Germany, but has raced, to date solely in Hong Kong, twice winning at Group One level, but just as famous, initially, for missing the break and producing a flying finish.
However, his final appearance in Hong Kong, just over a year ago in the middle of November, ended abruptly when the horse basically pulled himself up after less than 200m.
Stable jockey Pat Dobbs rides with Sam Hitchcott aboard stable companion Just A Penny, considered by many as a Jebel Ali specialist having registered all nine career wins ‘up the hill’.
