Maxilead Metals superstar racehorse has now been aimed for the UAE Derby, staged at the fabulous Meydan Racecourse, Dubai on the 31st March.
It will be the first time a Maxilead racehorse has been to Dubai and is hopefully a sign of things to come!
Red Duke will be running on a tapeta surface for the first time and is up against the rest of the world with representatives from Ireland, USA, Japan and Dubai.
Playing in our favour will be the booking of multiple group 1 winning and Maxilead sponsored jockey, Tom Queally.
Peter Clay , Director of Maxilead commented, “ It is an honour to have a horse good enough to be running in Dubai, if we were to win it would be a dream come true! Its great that all our customers who support our string of racehorses will be able to watch them on an international level, lets just hope he can do it!”
Our thanks go out to trainer John Quinn and all the staff at Highfield Stables in Malton, who have done a fantastic job to get Red Duke to Dubai.
We are counting down the days until March 31st, when Red Duke can hopefully cross the line infront and score one for Great Britain! Come on The Duke!
