AL FAHIDI FORT (GROUP 2)

MEYDAN 19 FEBRUARY 2010

Trainers Herman Brown and Mike de Kock maintained South Africa’s dominance in the Group 2 Al Fahidi Fort at Meydan Friday night with just a nose separating Bankable and Imbongi in a thrilling finish to the 1600m feature.

A photo verdict gave victory to Bankable, trained by Herman Brown, who just prevailed under Ryan Moore over Summerhill-bred Imbongi, with the locally-trained Ibn Battuta a close third.

Herman Brown was among those less than convinced that Bankable had prevailed before the release of the official verdict and said: “That was a good performance and I was not confident awaiting the photo to be called – we thought we had been beaten. We will probably wait for the Dubai Duty Free now as he (Bankable) is a horse who is best kept fresh.”
