Dubai Horse Racing Festival 2014 - African Story Storms to Dubai World Cup Glory For Godolphin
Saeed Bin Suroor's African Story was an impressive winner of the Dubai World Cup as the Godolphin raider reeled in the gutsy Mukhadram to land the world's richest race as a plethora of top class runners failed to get involved in what was an exciting showpiece at Meydan.
Paul Hanagan was always prominent on the British raider Mukhadram and he duly kicked for home and went a couple of lengths clear, but whilst many struggled to reel in William Haggas' star, it was Silvestre De Sousa on board African Story, who ate up the ground and propelled clear to land the spoils by two-and-three-quarter lengths.
Mukhadram stayed on for second place, whilst the placings were filled up by Cat O'mountain, who ran a cracker at a big price as all the leading contenders failed to get involved in the finish that saw the boys in blue reign again on the Tapeta.
