They always say that the best place to be when there is a slow pace is at the front. Elvstroem's win in the Dubai Duty Free (UAE-I) over nine furlongs on grass Saturday at Nad Al Sheba was the perfect illustration.
Last time Starcraft and Elvestroem met was in the Australian Derby (Aust-I) in the fall. Starcraft won, albeit narrowly, but Elvestroem's quest for victory in the AUS$2.5-million race resulted in a disappointing fifth.
