Forries Waltz (Greys Inn - Rose of Tralee) / Gold Circle (p)

He’s a promising horse and with racing back on dirt in Dubai we’ll be hoping he acts on the surface. He is from a Rich Man’s Gold mare which gives us confidence as his offspring generally perform well on sand.

Now three-years-old and unbeaten in South Africa, Forries Waltz has settled down at Mike de Kock’s stables in Dubai. He arrived in the UAE a few weeks ago with several other former South African-based runners and Mike reports that they’re all well and being prepared for the 2015 Dubai International Racing Carnival.

He said about Forries Waltz: “He’s a promising horse and with racing back on dirt in Dubai we’ll be hoping he acts on the surface. He is from a Rich Man’s Gold mare which gives us confidence as his offspring generally perform well on sand.”

Mike jets off to Dubai Wednesday as preparation for the Carnival starts in earnest.
