Tuesday, 02 July 2019 00:54

There’s no stopping the Dubawi juggernaut. On Sunday night NZ time the grey mare Coronet (Dubawi- Approach by Darshaan) was successful in the Group 1 Grand Prix de Saint Cloud at Saint Cloud; the Darley stallion’s 40th individual Group 1 winner.

Placed seven times at Group 1 level before breaking through at the elite level, Coronet is one of 112 individual group winners by Dubawi, and his 15th individual stakeswinner in 2019, a world leading standard, three ahead of Deep Impact and six ahead of Galileo.

Little Avondale stand the only son of Dubawi at stud in N.Z; the exquisitely bred dual Group 2 and 3 winner Time Test (Dubawi-Passage of Time by Dansili). Time Test’s first S.H foals arrive this spring.

The domestic weekend highlight was undoubtedly Skarloey’s (Per Incanto-Cachette by Kashini) win in the feature sprint at Hastings on Saturday. A 13 length winner at his previous start, the promising four-year-old has now won three of seven starts.
