Linngari, ridden by Yutaka Take, rolled alongside Caradak and pressed him to the wire. Caradak held on to win by a short neck, with Linngari and Welsh Emperor finishing in a dead heat for second.Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford told reporters after the race, "He is a horse who deserves a Group 1. He's been around the top table for the last two years. We will look at the Breeders' Cup, but we also have a race in Hong Kong in December in mind."
Godolphin added to its Group 1 success in France this season when Caradak prevailed in a tight finish to win the Prix de la Foret (Fr-I) at Longchamp on Saturday.In winning the Foret, Caradak made amends for just missing victory in the 2005 running. He finished second by a head to Court Masterpiece in last year's renewal. The 5-year-old son of Desert Style was coming off an impressive victory over George Washington in the Celebration Mile (Eng-II) at Goodwood in his most recent start.Jockey Frankie Dettori had Caradak just off the pace set by Welsh Emperor, and the pair powered to the lead one furlong out.
