Snow Rules The World

The victor of last year's UAE Derby burst into the lead from his wide draw in stall ten, before bounding clear in the straight ahead of the Baffert-trained pair of West Coast and Mubtaahij to win by five lengths. When I was a kid in jockey school I was looking and screaming when Cigar won."I was hoping one day I would have that chance."West Coast's rider, Javier Castellano, made no excuses for the vanquished favourite.He said: "I was in a ideal spot and I didn't have any complaints at all."Turning for home I thought I might be able to get to the winner, but he just moved away and was very impressive."Victor Espinoza rode Mubtaahij and felt some late interference may have cost him second.Espinoza said: "They went very slowly and he was pulling my arms out".

Moore said: "He's a very fast horse".

Victorious jockey Oisin Murphy said, "in previous races I struggled to find my rhythm, but today found my rhythm".

Under French jockey Christophe Soumillon, Thunder Snow recorded a seventh victory in the race for the Godolphin stable and a sixth for trainer Saeed Bin Suroor.

Although a Group One victor as a two-year-old and three-year-old, he looked to have his work cut out in the feature event of the night, but appeared much improved under more positive tactics and secured an impressive success.

" I never thought I would be able to make the running with that draw, but he jumped quite well and on the inside I saw nobody was trying to challenge me", Soumillon said. He's very talented, but when he doesn't want to do something he doesn't, but when he does he's wonderful.

The stunning 7-year-old grey Tallaab Al Khalediah extended his unbeaten record to five with an impressive performance in the United States $1 million Dubai Kahayla Classic sponsored by Mubadala, which allowed him to become the first Saudi Arabian trained horse to add his name to this very important race in the Purebred Arabian racing calendar.

Appleby had never enjoyed a victor on the world's richest raceday but he addressed that in some style partly thanks to Hawkbill's success under a front-running masterclass by William Buick.

There was a sensation just moments before race five, the Al Quoz Sprint, as the favourite - Godolphin's Blue Point - was scratched at the gate with blood in his nostrils. That pre-race drama did not distract the victor and jockey James Doyle who edged out Stormy Liberal by a half a length and Conquest Tsunami in third. Doug Watson's Rayya was a distant second with Reride a further three lengths back.

There was a double too for fellow Godolphin trainer Charlie Appleby.

But Moore kept to task with Heavy Metal as the field turned for home and put away a stubborn Kimbear with plenty in the tank to hold off a late rush from yet another Watson runner, Muntazah, to notch the two-length win as Adirato stayed on for third.

On Saturday, the Irish thoroughbred was the toast of the horse racing world after a thrilling victory in the $10 million Dubai World Cup.

The six-year-old, ridden by Soumillon for trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre, will now be aimed at the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot in June.

Thunder Snow's victory also brought up Suroor's 38 win after Benbatl had triumphed in the Dubai Turf earlier on the night.

"We won two years in a row and now we have come back and won it again".

"I lost my momentum and but for that could have finished second". "It was always on my mind to run him in the Dubai World Cup and he will have a break now, before running in Europe or America". The horse also bettered the 2,000m record time for Purebred Arabians.
