Dubai Future third in G2 York Stakes
Royal Ascot winner Dubai Future gained another placing at G2 level when coming home third in the York Stakes at York, UK, on Saturday, 23 July.
The Saeed bin Suroor-trained six-year-old, runner-up in the 2021 G2 Dubai City Of Gold, raced in third behind Dark Moon Rising and Claymore throughout the first half of the 10-furlong feature.
Dubai Honour relegated Dubai Future to a close fourth entering the home straight, with the Godolphin runner staying on down the stands’ rail to deliver a strong challenge entering the final quarter-mile.
Dubai Future was briefly denied a clear run by the wayward Dubai Honour over a furlong out before keeping on at the same pace under Adam Kirby to go down by four lengths in total.
Saeed bin Suroor said: “Dubai Future ran well but the ground didn’t really suit as it was a bit loose on top. We will try and find another Group race for him.”
