Ibn KhaldunIbn Khaldun (dailymail)The last Group One for juveniles during England’s 2007 racing season, the Racing Post Trophy, produced a significant boost for two first crop sires in Dubai Destination and Hawk Wing. Now four wins from five starts, Godolphin’s Ibn Khaldun (by Dubai Destination) ran away with the major share of the R3 million prize, with Hawk Wing’s Feared in Flight filling 3rd spot for veteran trainer Barry Hills.

While there will no doubt be celebration in both the Darley and Coolmore camps at this result, South African buyers will be cheered by the knowledge that the Summerhill Ready To Run draft includes a son of each of these exceptional race horses, both of whom were more than impressive in their gallops Friday a week ago.
