Godolphin's Wild Illusion Wins UK Gr1 Nassau Stakes

Friday, 3rd August 2018

Overnight at Goodwood in England, Darley's three-time Gr1-winning world-class shuttler Dubawi (Dubai Millennium) franked his recent achievement of 100 individual Group winners when his 3YO daughter Wild Illusion (Dubawi-Rumh, by Monsun) scored an authoritative 2-lengths win in the £600,000 Gr1 Nassau Stakes (9 furlongs) for trainer Charlie Appleby. Given every chance by William Buick, Wild Illusion defeated 4YO mare Urban Fox (Foxwedge-Lomapamar, by Nashwan) and fellow 3YO filly Veracious (Frankel-Infallible, by Pivotal). Now a dual Gr1 winner after landing Chantilly’s Gr1 Prix Marcel Boussac (1600m) at just her third race start 10 months ago, Wild Illusion also boasts a runner-up in Epsom’s Gr1 Oaks (12 furlongs). Her earnings improved to £685,939 from seven starts.
