Dubai Dancer Prepares for Gazelle

Dubai Dancer breezed four furlongs in 49.06 yesterday as she prepares for Saturday’s Grade 1 Gazelle, which will be her first start in graded stakes company.

 

Owned by Darley Stable, Dubai Dancer has made four starts, finishing seventh on debut over the inner tack in January, breaking her maiden by seven lengths at Saratoga in August, earning an allowance victory at Belmont in September, and picking up a stakes victory when trying two turns for the first time in the Witches Brew at Monmouth Park on October 31.

 

Dubai Dancer will stretch out from one mile, 70 yards in the Witches Brew to 1 1/8 miles in the Gazelle, and trainer Kiaran McLaughlin expects the daughter of A.P. Indy to relish the additional ground.

 

“We’re happy the race is a mile and an eighth because she wants to run all day,” said McLaughlin. “Ramon Dominguez will ride her, and she’s doing very well.”

 

On Saturday, Darley Stable’s Fort Hughes, a 5 ½-length debut winner at Belmont on October 10, had his first workout since bypassing the November 6 Grade 2 Nashua at Aqueduct, breezing four furlongs in 49.07 on the Belmont training track.

 

“He had spiked a little temperature before the Nashua, but he’s doing very well now,” said McLaughlin. “We hope to get him back to the races in December. Hopefully we can run him in an allowance or an overnight stakes.”
