Rewilding Pulls Clear in Sheema Classic

REWILDING (Mahmood Al Zarooni/Frankie Dettori) made it six from six for favourites on World Cup night and brought up a Godolphin treble with a clear victory in the Dubai Sheema Classic.

The four-year-old was sent wide on the turn by jockey Frankie Dettori - who also brought up his double on the night with the win - and burst into the leadwith an irresistable turn of foot, effectively ending the race as a contest with over 100 metres to run.


Al Zarooni said: "He's a really big horse and that will take a lot out of him. We have to treat him very carefully like a filly.


"Simon Crisford [Godolphin racing manager] and the boss will decide, but there are plenty of options including the Coronation Cup."

Totally agree. That BC Turf was dismal.
I thought Godolphin would likely go with Mastery as their #1 horse in the Sheema Classic off of his very impressive G1 Hong Kong Vase win at Sha Tin back in December. That said, Rewilding turned out to be an equally great choice for the race. Definitely the best 3yr.old prospect in their stable during 2010 season. Rewilding ran 3rd behind Workforce in the G1 Epsom Derby back in June, and won the G2 Great Voltigeur Stakes quite impressively back in August at York. Rewilding then went to Doncaster for the G1 St Leger in September as race favorite. But faded to 6th in that race after having difficulty staying the 1-3/4 trip of the St. Leger. But this colt has always been at this best fresh off of a lay-off. I thought this year's Sheema Classic pointed out something I've said more than once since November. That this year's Breeders Cup Turf was the weakest renewal of that race in the history of the event. 2nd place finisher, Champs Pegasus finished 12th of 14 in the Sheema, and the winner, Dangerous Midge, finished stone motherless last.
