Aspectoflove Wins Cape Verdi

Aspectoflove outlasted a stubborn Thai Haku to capture the $200,000 Cape Verdi Stakes-Sponsored by Bab Al Shams (UAE-IIT) at Meydan Racecourse Jan. 20.  The turf event for older fillies and mares was the featured race on the second night of the 2011 Dubai Carnival.

Sent off as the 3-1 second choice under Frankie Dettori, the Irish-bred daughter of Danetime was trying to capture her first stakes in Dubai, having finished a close second on two occasions last year. 

Dettori was content to settle Aspectoflove into third, as longshot Anam Chara led the field of 11 through very slow early fractions. Christophe Lemaire had Thai Haku in the second spot, with Aspectoflove just off her heels in third. Favored River Jetez hugged the rail in fourth, as 2009 Cape Verdi victress Deem raced toward the back of the field in seventh.

Anam Chara continued to set the pace, opening up a two-length lead as the field entered the home straight. Lemaire went to work aboard Thai Haku, and the daughter of Oasis Dream powered past Anam Chara, taking the lead with just over two furlongs left to run.
