Dubawi notches 30th individual winner

DUBAWI, the leading first-season sire by individual winners, took his tally for the season to 30 yesterday, when the Tim Easterby-trained Confessional won a 6f maiden at Catterick.

The son of Dubai Millennium needs to register six more winners this year to surpass the previous best first-season tally of 35 set by Invincible Spirit in 2006.

Among the Darley stallion's leading progeny are the Godolphin pairPoet's Voice, winner of the Champagne Stakes and sent off favourite for the Middle Park, and Sand Vixen, winner of the Flying Childers before disappointing in the Cheveley Park Stakes.

Winner number 31 may come courtesy of Comradeship, who has a choice of two engagements for John Gosden at Southwell on Friday.

Dubawi hails from the illustrious Sunbittern damline which also yielded High-Rise, and is out of the Italian Oaks winner Zomoradah.
