Thursday September 20 saw the annual Racehorse Owners Association of NSW Night of Champions held in Royal Randwick's ballroom.
Pride Of Dubai, who was victorious in The Blue Diamond in Melbourne and The Sires Produce in Sydney held a nomination for Champion Two Year Old, along with Gai Waterhouse's Vancouver and Rodney Northam's Odyssey Moon.
Being the only dual Group 1 winner of their generation, Pride Of Dubai was the obvious choice to be crowned Champion Two Year Old. It is interesting to note that he is the first and only horse to have ever won both The Blue Diamond and Sires Produce.
A homebred for His Excellency Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa al Maktoum, Pride Of Dubai is a strapping son of now deceased Street Cry, from the same family as European leading sire Invincible Spirit. He will make an excellent addition to Coolmore's stallion roster upon his eventual retirement.
Snowden Racing congratulates Pride Of Dubai's owners, Sheikh Khalifa, along with Coolmore, China Horse Club and Emmaroo bloodstock.
We also would like to thank all the team at Snowden Racing, it is a big team effort and could not be achieved without the input of everyone.
Pride Of Dubai is the third Champion Two Year Old to be trained by Peter and Paul Snowden, following Sepoy's victory in the 2010/2011 season and Earthquake in 2013/2014.
