Aspectoflove heads a field of 11 fillies and mares that will go to the post in the Cape Verdi Stakes-Sponsored by Bab Al Shams
(UAE-IIT) at Meydan Race Course on Jan. 20. The Cape Verdi highlights the second day of racing of the 2011 Dubai Carnival.
Trained by Saeed bin Suroor for Godolphin, Aspectoflove finished second
in this race last year, coming up just a quarter-length short to Soneva
. The 5-year-old daughter of Danetime
made seven additional starts in 2010, capturing two listed events over the same eight furlong distance of the Cape Verdi.
Aspectoflove has been training very well of late, and Suroor is looking
for big things from her. “She ran well in both her Meydan races last
year and we are very happy with her. She is better racing prominently
and we expect her to go close," he said.
Frankie Dettori has the mount.
