Very interesting Group 2 race over 1900 meters on the dirt at Meydan racecourse. The field is a quality group of only 8 runners officially rated between 106 to 116. One standout is newcomer to UAE racing Argentinian super horse Eragon owned by Farooq Racing and trained in Al Ain by Daniel J Murphy. Eragon has won some stellar races in his career including three top-level successes in the Gran Premio Joaquin S de Anchorena on turf, the Gran Premio Estrellas Mile and, most recently, the Premio Hipodromo de Palermo, both on
the dirt. John Egan gets the ride on Eragon…

Quality race at Meydan with over $250,000 dollars in prize money!
