Benbatl obliges

Benbatl has raced in 3 continents and on 11 different tracks in his 20 starts and has won 10 of them.

His latest is a 2 lengths win over Military Law in the second round of the Al Maktoum challenge at Meydan with Gronkowski quite a way back in third.  You have to love Benbatl – he not only obliged with the win but is one of the most obliging of horses just turning up and running wherever they ask and this time on the dirt, a fist for him but as usual no problems.  But we have to point out here to all those who were asking for Winx to travel that she beat him by two lengths in the Cox Plate!

Earlier the UAE 200 Guineas went to the American Fore Left with English jockey William Buick on board.  They were 1 ¾ lengths ahead of Zaberdast with another length back to Emblem Sun.
