Racing: Librettist success puts Godolphin team back on song
Thursday 08 June 2006
Librettist, running for the first time since he finished fifth in the Dewhurst Stakes two years ago, brought cheer to the Godolphin team with a two-length victory at Nottingham yesterday. He was a first winner for Saeed Bin Suroor for 27 days and the stable's first runner since closing its doors two weeks ago after a poor start to the British season.
The Danzig four-year-old made all under Frankie Dettori to beat Alfie Flits by two lengths. "I heard the commentator say the boys in blue are back," said Bin Suroor. "I hope he's right."
Godolphin's prime contender at Royal Ascot the week after next will be Dubai World Cup winner Electrocutionist in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes. Yesterday Pam Sly nominated another of the Group One features, the Coronation stakes, for her 1,000 Guineas heroine Speciosa, fourth in last week's Oaks. "Better to keep her with three-year-olds than the hardened older mares in the Falmouth next month," said the Peterborough handler.
