Dubawi's Emaraaty Wins Maiden

Monday, 25th September 2017

Valuable Shadwell colt Emaraaty broke his maiden when scoring a powerful win in the Wedgewood Estates EBF Novice Stakes (7 furlongs) at Newbury in the UK on Saturday. The equal highest selling lot of the 2016 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale when fetching 2.6 million guineas, Emaraaty is by Darley's world-class sire Dubawi out of Gr1 Prix de l'Opera winner Zee Zee Top (Zafonic-Colorspin, by High Top). This makes Emaraaty a direct descendant of outstanding producer Reprocolor, one of the foundation mares of the Weinfeld family's Meon Valley Stud in England. This is the family of European Classic winners Cezanne, Colorspin, Kayf Tara, Opera House, Zee Zee Top, and Gr1 Prix de l'Opera runner-up Jazzi Top. Trainer John Gosden nominated the Gr3 Greenham Stakes at Newbury in April as suitable target, which necessarily implies he thinks the blue blood is a 2,000 Guineas prospect. "He is a very promising horse costing all that money and he has a bit of class about him. We will see if he runs again this year or whether we wait for the spring. He certainly has a lot of natural speed," Gosden said.
