Multiple classic winner Blue Bunting and her 2014 Dubawi filly - https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bkn3QxqCMAAkBeH.jpg
Multiple G1 and Classic winning filly Blue Bunting will be bred to Dubawi in 2013, she was bred to Street Cry in 2012
From RacingPost.com, 2-8-2012: I'm so disappointed to be reporting that Godolphin have retired their English 1000 Guineas, Irish Oaks, and Yorkshire Oaks winning filly, Blue Bunting as of today. The story says she will be bred in the near future to Street Cry. The story didn't touch much on the question, but I wonder why the sudden decision to retire her now? Especially when all I've been reading about Blue Bunting over the past couple of months was how excited trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni was to have Blue Bunting as his #1 horse for this year's Sheema Classic. She was a terrific filly that certainly went on to scale much bigger heights than I initially ever gave her credit for.

  • ILuvTurfRacing · @footlick, I was also looking forward to seeing her race again in 2012. I was actually pretty excited about the prospect of seeing her go against older males in this year's Sheema Classic. I had initially thought that Snow Fairy was probably the only filly or mare capable of beating the boys in the Sheema? But at her best, I think Blue Bunting could've also posed a big threat to them in that race as well. · 954 days ago

It was disappointing news when I had read that Snow Fairy wasn't going to be making the trip to Dubai for this year's G1 Sheema Classic because of the injury sustained at Sha Tin just prior to the running of the Hong Kong Vase. I love a competitive filly that's able to compete with the boys. That said, with Snow Fairy out, if there's another filly being pointed for the Sheema Classic that may still fit that bill, I think it's definitely Blue Bunting!! She's beaten the best of the best 3yr.old fillies in Europe in both the G1 English 1000 Guineas and the G1 Irish Oaks, and beat some of the top older fillies and mares in the G1 Yorkshire Oaks. Her only start to date against the boys was in the G1 St. Leger at Doncaster, where she ended up a disappointing 6th that day. But I don't really think it was that she was facing basically an all male field in the St. Leger as much as I don't think she stayed the extra 1/4 mile from 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 in the St. Leger. Dropping back down in trip to 1-1/2 again in the Sheema Classic, this filly could certainly have a big say in the race this year, IMO. Blue Bunting's biggest obstacle to overcome in the Sheema Classic in my view would be if the Japanese Triple Crown and Arima Kinen winner, Orferve's, connection's decide to race him in the Sheema Classic instead of the Dubai World Cup? I'm sure there's a horse anywhere in the world right now, male or female, that could beat Orfevre at 1-1/2 on turf? I'll know about how I feel about Blue Bunting's chances in the Sheema Classic after I see her run on "Super Tuesday" at the Dubai Carnival in the G2 Dubai City Gold!!
