Horse Racing Results: Meydan, January 12 2012, Race 4, 20:25, UAE 2000 Guineas Trial Sponsored By Etisalat

A highlight of the evening at Meydan on January 12th 2012, was Race 4, run at 20:25 local time, the UAE 2000 Guineas Trial Sponsored By Etisalat which was run over 1400M (approximately 7 furlongs) on the All Weather Tapeta surface.

The race saw another fine crop of three tear olds battle it out, with the Steven Burridge trained Dark Matter proving to be the best of the 14 runners, under a solid ride from Ted Durcan. In second was Kinglet while Frankie Dettori rode the Said Bin Suroor trained Rassam into third place.

Of the three, perhaps Rassam, who was running only his second race, looks to have the potential to develop the most in future, and, given a small amount of improvement, could easily lift a similar race next time out.
