Qatar Man 2nd in the Al Bastakiya Stakes

Qatar Man ran a cracking race to finish 2nd in the listed Al Bastakiya on the dirt at Meydan on Saturday over the 1m1½f trip on dirt going that was described as fast. The tough colt Qatar Man has done well on the dirt surface whilst over in Dubai and seems to appreciate the fast going, he is by American sire Archarcharch and this is coming through in his preference for the american style racing surface.

“He has come out of the race well and is pleased with himself, he is a nice type that keep’s getting better with his races, We are hoping that he may get an invite for the UAE Derby a Group 2 over 9.5 furlongs on the dirt.” Added trainer Marco Botti on his colts consistent run.

Qatar Man runs in the colours of Mubarak Al Naemi.
