Al Rashidiya Trial Presented By Longines

Meydan, Turf, 1800m

5 January 2012

The Mike de Kock-trained Mahbooba (AUS) (Galileo (IRE) - Sogha (AUS) by Red Ransom (USA)) was the impressive winner of the 1800m Al Rashidiya Trial Presented By Longines, the featured turf race on the first night of the 2012 Dubai World Cup Carnival at a meeting sponsored by Longines.

First one past the post in last year’s UAE 1000 Guineas, Mahbooba was a winner in England during the summer and won well to the delight of winning jockey Christophe Soumillon who said: “She was good on all-weather last year but seems just as good on the turf. This trip of 1800m was probably as short as she would want as she won over 2400m in England and stays well. I am not sure what future plans will be but we should have plenty of options with her and she is an ideal sort for the Carnival.”
