First Win for Record Priced Pride of Dubai Filly

Tara Madgwick - Thursday July 22

The most expensive yearling filly by Pride of Dubai broke the ice for her first win at Kembla on Thursday with Queen of Dubai scoring a narrow victory in a thrilling finish.

Trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, Queen of Dubai failed to flatter in two unplaced starts earlier this year, but a recent trial win indicated she had more to offer this time around.

A full sister to stakes-placed Dubai Star, she finished with great determination for Tim Clark to win the 1000m maiden by half a head in a blanket finish.


A $500,

000 Magic Millions purchase from the Segenhoe draft for her trainers, Queen of Dubai runs for a syndicate that includes her breeder Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, in whose colours she runs.

Queen of Dubai is the second winner from Jezzabba, a winning half-sister by Fastnet Rock to Group II winner Von Costa de Hero from Group I winner Piavonic.

The yearling filly by Snitzel from Jezzabba was sold at Magic Millions this year to Snowden Racing for $280,000 and she has a filly to follow by Pride of Dubai and is back in foal to him again.
