AL-SALAAM A WORTHY FAVOURITE

Al-Salaam, by Mullins Bay (GB), proved a worthy favourite in the first race on OK Day, a 1000m Maiden Juvenile Plate. The colt, bred by Shadwell Stud, had shown improvement in each of his three previous races.

The two-year-old colt is trained by Bridget Stidolph, was ridden by Randall Simons and is owned by the Sunmark Syndicate.

The tussle between Al-Salaam and first-timer Betula Uber resulted in the closest of finishes with only 0.05 lengths separating the two juveniles at the line. Al-Salaam triumphed and both horses will be worth watching in future.
