Dubawi’s The Revenant Triumphs in Haydock Debut

By Sean Cronin

3rd-HAY, £7,000, Cond, 9-7, 2yo, c/g, 7f 212yT, 1:43.99, g/s.

THE REVENANT (GB) (c, 2, Dubawi {Ire}–Hazel Lavery {Ire} {GSW-Eng, $246,630}, by Excellent Art {GB}) was last from the gates, but recovered to track the leaders under restraint in sixth for most of this first go. Inching ever closer on the bridle in the straight, the 11-2 chance quickened smartly to challenge with 1 1/2 furlongs remaining and was ridden out in the closing stages to assert by 3/4-of-a-length from Global Conqueror (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), with the Dubawi trifecta completed by Godolphin’s 1.2-million guineas TATOCT yearling Ghostwatch (Ire) 2 1/4 lengths further adrift in third. The homebred bay is the first winner for G3 St Simon S. victress Hazel Lavery (Ire) (Excellent Art {GB}), herself a half-sister to G3 St Leger Italiano and G3 Give Thanks S. runner-up Leo Gali (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), and he is kin to a yearling filly by Kingman (GB). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $5,905. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
