Victory Moon, winner of both the UAE 2,000 Guineas and Derby in 2003, returned to the scene of his greatest triumphs when winning the second round of the Maktoum Challenge (UAE-III) at Nad Al Sheba on Thursday night.
Five days after American-based 3-year-olds went seven furlongs in the Hutcheson and San Vicente Stakes, those based in Dubai will attempt the same distance in a prep for the UAE Two Thousand Guineas at Nad Al Sheeba Thursday. As Godolphin sends out three horses, the race may have some impact on the American Triple Crown scene.
