MIKE DE KOCK completed a spectacular four-timer at Meydan on Thursday when Bold Silvano recorded a comfortable victory over Spring Of Fame in the second round of the Maktoum Challenge.
The winner was ridden by Christophe Soumillon, himself completing a
treble on the night at the Dubai Carnival, where he leads the rankings
with five winners.
After a rare blank seven days previously, De Kock took his carnival
tally to eight this yearand 86 overall, second only to Godolphin trainer
Saeed Bin Suroor.
De Kock and Soumillon had struck earlier with Mahbooba and Star
Empire, while Kevin Shea partnered carnival stalwart Warsaw to score for
the South African maestro.
