Variety Club dominates top local milers in Able Fried, Gold-Fun, Glorious Days, Dan Excel, Blazing Speed, and from Europe Gordon Lord Byron & Mshawish, roming home with an easy win at Sha Tin in the G1 Champion Mile. Variety Club was much the best in the race.

  • Sullivan · Lopresti is counting on Dan regaining lost form in September/October/November. Variety Club usually isn't even around then. At least shipping to America is easier than Dubai. · 69 days ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @paul.nathan.946, kudos to you because earlier today I was thinking back to when Variety Club was still in Dubai and you were saying then he wasn't as good on tapeta and they needed to get him back on turf. Variety Club was the 1st horse to ever win the G1 Champions Mile that wasn't locally based and trained in Hong Kong since the inception of the race in 2001. He really trounced some of the best milers in Hong Kong in Able Friend, Gold-Fun, Glorious Days, & Dan Excel. · 68 days ago
Great performance i writ him off after hes last run can't wait to see him back on turf where i believe hes at least 3 lengths better fair play to connections also to bringing him out to dubai and what looks like HK,Europe,America if all goes well

  • ILuvTurfRacing · Variety Club got a break by Capital Attraction blowing the start, but that said full props to Anton Marcus for taking full advantage of that slotting Variety Club right over to the rail. Next confirmed start for Variety Club is actually the G1 Champions Mile at Sha Tin, not the Hong Kong Mile. Runs on the same card with the G1 Audemars Piguet QE II Cup. · 105 days ago
  • Euro Trash · Yes, ILuvTurfRacing, that is horse racing. Taking advantage of the breaks that happen. I always like to see a true challenge, that is all. · 105 days ago
Always thought taking a crack at the G1 Dubai World Cup was supposed to be the end game for Variety Club at Meydan? With that in mind, I don't know why he wasn't running in the G1 Al Maktoum Challenge Rd. 3 at 2000 meters instead of in the G3 Burj Nahaar at 1600 meters. At least in the AMC Rd. 3, Joey Ramsden would've gotten a sense of how Variety Club would fare over the same course & distance of the Dubai World Cup and against some of the same horses who will likely be in the DWC field. The route Variety Club has taken at Meydan through the Firebreak Stakes at 1600 meters and the Burj Nahaar at 1600 meters seems more akin to a horse being pointed at the G2 Godolphin Mile than the G1 Dubai World Cup anyway, IMO.

  • travel_vic · I have NO IDEA where a contender is bred but rather look at what it has done exclusive of anything else. · 125 days ago
First time this horse has been beaten in quite awhile, but he had a no excuse trip and just got run down by a filly in Shuruq who loves the tapeta surface herself.

  • paul.nathan.946 · Still think hes a player on the turf hopefully they go godolphin mile or duty free if they go the world cup there finishing close to the back · 126 days ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @paul.nathan.946, I think you're spot there. I could see Variety Club coming back and winning the G2 Godolphin Mile, but I wouldn't etch it in stone he'd win the G1 Dubai Duty Free. I think his South African counterpart may prove tough to beat in the Duty Free in Vercingetorix, and there's always a few top European horses that ship in just for the world cup night races that will be tough to beat also. · 126 days ago
Should be winning the burj nahaar by at least 3+ lengths if want's to compete in the world cup on tapeta if not i think a switch back to turf is a must.
Great win sweated up badly pre race, would prefer to see him back on turf can't see him winning a world cup on that performance
  • Euro Trash · I certainly need another look. The field was not close to as strong as a WC field will be. · 149 days ago
  • jmac500 · He ran nicely. · 148 days ago
Interesting too see how this horse does in dubai over the mile. Hes a two time HOTY in SA and has won hes last 8 races
