ASPETAR, Bonneval, Make Believe, Marky Mark, Poet’s Word, Sofia Rosa, Trap For Fools, and potential classic candidate Mkfancy, are all Group 1 winners by sons of Dubawi (by Dubai Millennium).

Two of those have won the Australian Oaks, one landed the Poule d’Essai des Poulains (French 2000 Guineas) and another was a Timeform 129-rated middle-distance star, and the list of major races won by descendants of Dalham Hall Stud’s outstanding stallion looks set to increase over the next few years. It is just a matter of time before Night Of Thunder, Europe’s top freshman of 2019, gets his first Group 1 star. He already has nine stakes winners.
