Champions Day glory for Dubawi

Creative Force strikes in the G1 British Champions Sprint Stakes

Dubawi’s tough three-year-old son Creative Force landed his biggest career triumph on Saturday, 16 October when winning the G1 British Champions Sprint Stakes. Always well positioned tracking the early speed under jockey William Buick, he cruised to the lead two furlongs out before holding on for a one-length victory.

A winner earlier in the season in the G3 Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot, Creative Force has now won six of his ten career starts.

Bred by Owenstown Bloodstock and a €400,000 yearling, Creative Force is a half-brother to five winners including the Champion mare Persuasive, winner of the G1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot. Their dam, Choose Me, was a Stakes winner in the Listed Fairy Bridge Stakes.

Dubawi has sired 36 Stakes winners and 23 Group winners in 2021, both world leading numbers. seven have now come in October including thrilling G1 Prix de la Foret hero Space Blues, G2 Challenge Stakes winner Al Suhail and a brace of Group-winning juveniles on Future Champions Day at Newmarket in Coroebus and Goldspur.
