The Etisalat eLife run on the Turf surface over 1200M (approximately 6 furlongs) was the third race at Meydan on January 12th 2012.
The race was won by David “Dandy” Nicholls’ Addictive Dream which was ridden by David’s son Adrian Nicholls. Addictive Dream collected USD $72,000 in winners prize monily with a little in hand, winning by one and a half lengths from the next best, Internationaldebut, which was ridden by Frederik Tylicki.
In third place, another one and a quarter lengths down, was The Reaper under Ryan Moore.
The winner stole a march on the field by bursting clear with a furlong and a half to go, and, despite seeming to tire, or at least dwindle, in front, held on for a comfortable victory under Adrian Nicholls.
