Double For Godolphin, As Naval Power Takes Listed Jumeirah Classic

Naval Power | DRC

Naval Power (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}) added another tick in the win column with a stalk-and-pounce triumph in Meydan's Listed Jumeirah Classic Presented By Longines on Friday.

Punching the breeze from his wide draw, he was content to let One Nation (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) take the lead for the opening quarter mile. Eventually steered back through the field to get some cover, the hooded bay revved back up by the 500-metre mark and arrived with his run at the 300-metre pole. It took him until the 50-metre mark to collar One Nation, but once he was in the clear, he motored home a facile winner. One Nation was 3 1/4 lengths ahead of Highbank (Ire) (Kingman {GB}) in third to give Charlie Appleby and Godolphin the trifecta.

“That was lovely in a competitive race, as the second and third set a good standard,” said William Buick. “He'll be a better horse on better ground.”

A winner of his first four starts, including to at listed level in England, Naval Power's flawless record ended with a sixth in the G1 Dewhurst S. in October. The Jumeirah was his 3-year-old bow.

Emirates Rewards did her best running at three where she accrued three victories. At stud, she has three winners from four runners, a Harry Angel (Ire) juvenile filly and a yearling filly by Raven's Pass. Her dam is GI Spinster S. heroine Asi Siempre (El Prado {Ire}), who also foaled GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf hero and sire Outstrip (GB). Click for the VIDEO.
