Al Shaqab Racing’s 5-year-old gelding Duhail (IRE) has proven admirably consistent at various levels for his connections, rising in the ranks over the past year, in particular, under the tutelage of five-time Breeders’ Cup-winning trainer Andre Fabre.
A son of French Derby (G1) winner Lope de Vega — sire of two Breeders’ Cup winners over the past three years — the chestnut stepped up to the Group 1 level this season and finished an excellent fourth in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood. That effort came against some of the best milers in Europe, including Alcohol Free.
Earlier this year, the maternal grandson of 1996 Longines Turf runner-up Singspiel (IRE) landed his most notable triumph in the Group 2 Prix du Muguet, defeating multiple G1 winners Victor Ludorum (GB) and The Revenant (GB) in the process.
Versatile from 6 to 8 furlongs and on any ground, he was a game second in August’s Group 3 Prix de Meautry at Deauville, his fifth Group placing in 2021, and has finished top three on everything from good to heavy footing. Two of those runner-up finishes came against Marianafoot, who would subsequently go on to land the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest, flattering the form.
He will seek to give Qatari operation Al Shaqab its first Breeders’ Cup victory, after its first seven attempts either as solo ownership or in partnership.
