Shadwell’s Danyah Shocks The Al Quoz Sprint

Eighth to Godolphin’s race favourite Al Suhail (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) in a conditions event on Super Saturday earlier this month, Shadwell’s DANYAH (IRE) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}-Cuis Ghaire {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire}) turned the tables with a game showing close home to take the $1.5-million G1 Al Quoz Sprint over six furlongs of Meydan sod on Saturday. Australian raider The Astrologist (Aus) (Zoustar {Aus}) was a head back in second, just to the good of Al Suhail in third. The gelding, who is a homebred, is the 75th group winner, and 22nd Group 1 winner for his sire, who stands at the Irish National Stud. Trained by Musabbeh Al Mheiri and ridden by Oisin Murphy, the 6-year-old had gained his first stakes win in the Listed Business Bay Challenge over seven furlongs on Feb. 10.
