    Shea Shea Smashes His Meydan Course Record
    By Myra Lewyn, The Blood-Horse Updated: Saturday, March 30, 2013 11:52 AM
    Shea Shea showed there was plenty of speed left in his 9-year-old legs as he sizzled to a course record-setting victory in the $1 million Al Quoz Sprint Sponsored by Emirates NBD (UAE-I) on the Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) undercard March 30 at Meydan.
    In a stunning display of brilliant acceleration, the National Emblem gelding flew past 10-year-old Joy And Fun in the closing stages to win by three-quarters of length under Christophe Soumillon. Eagle Regiment finished third.
    Trained by Mike de Kock, Shea Shea came into the race having won the Meydan Sprint by 2 1/2 lengths from Sole Power while lowering the course standard for 1,000 meters to :57.02 on the March 9 Super Saturday card. He smashed his own record for the distance in the Al Quoz Sprint when bursting clear late to win in :56.41

    Gentildonna travelled 3W in the Sheema Classic, finished 2nd.
    Very Nice Name 3rd and Dunaden 4th

    Sid Fernando tweet announcers speculated bandaged Gentildonna seemed to be "feeling the ground," and it looked that way.

    Impressive run by St Nicholas Abbey, looking the Japanese super filly, Gentildonna, in the eye, and saying, "Not today young lady."

    DUBAI RACE NIGHT
    Gary Stevens ‏tweets Good to be home. Appreciate Dullahan and Little Mike. Wasn’t our night. Congrats to The Animal
    I hit the gate. Came out sideways. What an Athlete!
    Little Mike, thanks for saving my a @ @ @!

    QUESTION TO GARY Pat Cummings ‏@DubaiRaceNight tweet
    Gary, did he hit the gate on jumping? Thought I saw that.
    Good job hanging in when Spencer cut across, he got 5 days for that, fyi

    ANSWER FROM Gary Stevens ‏tweet
    @DubaiRaceNight left shoulder, mine still feeling the bad jump.
    No comment on the suspension. A lot of $$ on the line for placings.

    Gary Stevens ‏tweet response to comment
    Good observation.
    Rt“@mac90x: Gary Little Mike looked like he was cruising early, but those were some talented horses behind him.”
