DUBAI — Soneva, ridden by Christophe Soumillon, unleashed a strong stretch run to win the Fillies & Mares Group-3 Cape Verdi, the highlight of the eight-race card on the third day of the Dubai International Racing Carnival at Meydan Racecourse on Friday.
What a great opening night we witnessed from Meydan. Everything you could have wanted was there. His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, was present to see his vision come to life, and with a host of international winners on the card, the seventh Dubai International Racing Carnival looks sure to exceed the success of its predecessors.
