Mahbooba Faces Six in UAE Oaks

Mahbooba will try to add another stakes victory to her already glittering resume when she faces six other fillies in the $250,000 UAE Oaks Sponsored by Al Tayer Motors (UAE-III) at Meydan Racecourse Feb. 24. The 9 1/2 furlong contest is one of two stakes races that highlight the Thursday evening program at Meydan.

The 4-year-old daughter of Galileo enters the Oaks off of a scintillating victory over Reem in the listed UAE 1000 Guineas Sponsored by Etisalat Feb. 3. Her stablemate Reem most recently finished a strong second to River Jetez in last week’s Balanchine Stakes Sponsored by Emirates NBD (UAE-IIT).

Mahbooba races as a homebred for Sheikh Mohammed and is trained by Mike de Kock. She has won four of her six lifetime starts, and has never finished out of the money. As a juvenile racing in South Africa, Mahbooba captured the Golden Slipper (SAf-I) and was third in the Allan Robertson Championship (SAf-I).

Mahbooba took a shocking defeat here, she was rank early and was bottled up at the top of the stretch. To anyone following the carnival I'd recomend playing her back inthe UAE Derby on World Cup Night. I along with Pat Cummings see her as the best 3 year old on the grounds out there, and will have the experience going the distance that the boys will lack.
