Older Comments about the 2012 Dubai Sheema Classic (G1)...

A lot you may not agree with the comment I'm about to make? But I personally believe that the jockey bookings played just as big a part in the outcome of this year's G1 Sheema Classic as the horses themselves did. No disrespect intended whatsoever in any shape, form, or fashion to young Joseph O'Brien. Because I think he's a real up and comer with a lot of potential. But you could just tell the way the Sheema Classic field crawled early on that jockey tactics were what was going to decide the outcome of this race. And in that department, Olivier Peslier is just far superior to Joseph O'Brien. Especially at such an early stage in O'Brien's jockey career. And I think that showed in the stretch of the Sheema Classic. But I do also give a big measure of credit to Cirrus Des Aigles himself for this win. 2011 was without question the best and most successful season of Cirrus Des Aigles career to date. After so many near misses, finally getting that G1 monkey off of his back in the G1 Champion Stakes at Ascot. Now, he seems to have clearly carried over that 2011 form into the start of the 2012 season. Because St Nicholas Abbey is certainly not an easy horse to beat at 12f or even 12+f. And I don't just say that simply because he came stateside back in November and won the G1 BC Turf, either.
