Weekend European Stakes Double for Pride of Dubai

Tara Madgwick - Sunday October 25

Pride of Dubai is the reigning Champion Australian First Crop Sire and the dual Group I winning son of Street Cry is also making his presence felt in the Northern Hemisphere where he has sired more stakes-winners than any other first season sire this year in Europe.

Pride of Dubai added a new stakes-winner to his tally on Saturday when Flying Visit won the Group III Eyrefield Stakes (9f) at Leopardstown and then on Sunday his undefeated filly Telepatic Glances won the Group II Premio Dormello (1m) at San Siro in Italy.

The Endo Botti trained Telepatic Glances made it three wins in as many starts when bolting clear to win by two and three-quarter lengths.


Purchased for 16,00 euros from the Goffs Sportsman Yearling Sale , Telepatic Glances is a half-sister to stakes-placed Glimmies and is from winning Hurrican Run mare Caveran, who comes from the family of Group I winners Earthlight, Mandaean and Wavering.

Pride of Dubai has some impressive stats from his first European crop posting 11 winners from 33 starters and five of those winners are stakes-winners, three of them successful in Group races – Telepatic Glances, Flying Visit, Star of Emaraaty, Fancy Man and Zaffy’s Pride.

Pride of Dubai

The sire of seven stakes-winners worldwide – four of them Group winners - Pride of Dubai is powering ahead this season in Australia, leading the second crop sires list by winners (13) and stands at Coolmore this spring at a fee of $38,500.
