UK G3 Winner for Pride of Dubai

Tara Madgwick - Saturday August 8

The reigning Champion Australian First Season Sire, Pride of Dubai posted his first Northern Hemisphere stakes-winner overnight in the UK with a strong finishing victory in the Group III Sweet Solera Stakes (7f)  at Newmarket for Star of Emaraaty.

The Kevin Ryan trained filly broke her maiden at Ayr in July and then was fourth in a Listed race at Sandown before coming to this tougher assignment.

She settled midfield for Kevin Stott and surged to the line to win going away by more than a length.

“Star of Emaraaty got very unbalanced at Sandown and it was a bit of a risk coming to Newmarket of it happening again,” said Kevin Ryan.

“We knew when she hit the rising ground she would come home well. She is quite a laid back filly and she will improve with racing.”

A dual Group I winning son of Street Cry from the female family of invincible Spirit and Kodiac, Pride of Dubai shuttled to Coolmore Ireland for two seasons and has over 100 two year-olds to run for him up there this year.

Star of Emaraaty is the second winner from La Grande Elisa, a half-sister by Ad Valorem to Group I winning sire Rip Van Winkle.

Pride of Dubai has had a strong year in the sale-ring with four yearlings selling for $500,000 or more and his overall average price up markedly from 2019 indicating the high regard in which his progeny are held.

Pride of Dubai stands at Coolmore Australia this spring at a fee of $38,500.
