What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Leahurst...

Luca Cumani and Jeremy Noseda have both lost candidates for Dubai World Cup meeting, the Racing Post reported today.   Purple Moon, third in the 2009 Dubai Sheema Classic (G1), will pass a second attempt at the race after not making it for the Dubai City of Gold (G2) on Super Thursday...Read More
  • Medlocke · Leahurst adapted to the Tapeta surface at Meydan as well as any horse that raced during the whole 2010 Dubai Racing Carnival, IMO. He ran two huge efforts, winning both of them on Meydan's main track. Leahurst suffered a fracture in winning his second start in Dubai. That's why he was scratched from the Golden Shaheen. But Leahurst, had he not been injured, really should have taken a shot at the Dubai World Cup as well as he performed on the Tapeta surface. Leahurst and Gitano Hernando are quite similar in the fact that until Gitano Hernando lost the race for the World Cup, both came in never having been beaten on any synthetic surface track that they had ever raced over. I really think Leahurst could have been a big player in the Dubai World Cup. Gitano Hernando could have, and should have finished much better than he ultimately did in the Dubai World Cup. He broke from gate #2, right outside of Allybar. But Fallon waited far too late into the race to make any kind of move with Gitano Hernando. Two or three times during the race, Fallon had the opportunity to split Mastery and Allybar, to get Gitano Hernando into the clear. By the time Fallon did get Gitano Hernando into the clear, he accelerated well. But Gloria De Campeao, Lizard's Desire, and Allybar were all ready off and gone. Leaving Gitano Hernando with far too much to do. TJMO. · 1457 days ago ·

Two absolutely explosive performances on the Tapeta at Meydan during the Dubai Racing Carnival for this Irish colt. He completely dominated both fields that he ran against in Dubai. If ever there was a colt that should have taken a shot at the Dubai World Cup, the way that Leahurst explodes on the Tapeta, it's him. He's certainly shown over the course of his career that 10 furlongs is well withing his ability. I really think had Jeremy Noseda decided to race Leahurst in the World Cup, he would've been quite pleased with the result's that this colt would have accomplished. IMO.
Leahurst came to Dubai having won his first two lifetime starts "impressively" on the synthetic surface at Wolverhampton. Then, on opening day, January 28th, of the 2010 Dubai Racing Carnival at Meydan, he won the Daaher Handicap easily drawing away from the field on the Tapeta surface. A field that included Sirocco Breeze, Green Coast, and Mutheeb. All three having excellent carnival run's themselves. Then, Leahurst comes back on February 18th, again on the Tapeta, to win the Aqlaam Handicap at Meydan. Making him 4 for 4 lifetime over synthetic surfaces, two of the wins on the Tapeta at Meydan. All four wins, at Wolverhampton and Meydan, drawing away from all four fields impressively. If ever there was a horse that should have taken a shot at the Dubai World Cup, this was the horse. Gitano Hernando came into Dubai 4 for 4 lifetime on synthetics, and went off as the favorite. Having never raced on the Tapeta. His win's were at Wolverhampton, Lingfield, and Santa Anita. Leahurst adapted immediately to the Tapeta, and blow both fields away on the surface that he raced. He had raced over the surface more impressively than Lizard's Desire, and look where he ended up finishing in the Dubai World Cup field.
