GENTILDONNA overcame a troubled passage to post another impressive win for Japan at Meydan under Ryan Moore.

Trained by Sei Ishizaka, Gentildonna was trapped on the inner rail as Christophe Soumillon and Cirrus Des Aigles prevented Moore from switching out inside the final couple of furlongs.

However, Moore managed to extricate himself from his difficult position and he was able to unleash the mare's potent turn of foot that took her past Cirrus Des Aigles with ease.

Magician just couldn't get racing room for the better part of the race. Would've been interesting to see if he could've made it close if he could've just found a hole at the top of the lane.
Unbelievable run by her. Against the best field that will be assembled until November, this class mare not only re rallied, but won going away over a strong field. Best performance of the day.
This mare is such a fighter. She was in traffci during the whole race but overcame it. She and Ryan Moore make a great team.
