Dawn in good shape after Dewhurst
Sunday 14 October 2012
Dawn Approach was reported none the worse the morning after his superb performance in the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket.
The Godolphin-owned colt gave trainer Jim Bolger a remarkable fifth win in the last seven renewals of one of the season's most prestigious juvenile events, asserting in the final furlong to lead home stable companion Leitir Mor.
He is already a hot favourite for next year's 2000 Guineas and is also prominent in ante-post lists for the Epsom Derby.
Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford said: "He's fine. It was a fantastic day and a great performance. He couldn't have done any more."
Godolphin supremo Sheikh Mohammed confirmed immediately after the race Dawn Approach would remain with Bolger for his Classic campaign, rather than joining either of his principal trainers Mahmood Al Zarooni and Saeed bin Suroor.
