Dubawi has been enjoying a spectacular season and on Saturday, 13 October he sired a G1 double in the UK and Australia.
Already the sire of an unbeaten G1-wining two-year-old colt in Quorto, Dubawi doubled his tally when Too Darn Hot was the very impressive winner of the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket. In a race that will likely decide this season’s European Champion juvenile, the Lord Lloyd Webber homebred looked in trouble heading into the dip before picking up in great style in the final furlong to win going away by two and three quarter lengths.
He was given a Timeform race rating of 127, the best performance in the race in recent history, 1lb more than Frankel eight years earlier.
Earlier in the day, Benbatl landed his third G1 of the season when victorious in the G1 Caulfield Stakes in Australia. Setting up a mouth-watering clash with Champion mare Winx, the Godolphin homebred colt out of G1 winner Nahrain got the better of Blair House to win narrowly. He was the second Group winner on the card for Dubawi after Ball Of Muscle had won his 12th career race in the G2 Schillaci Stakes.
