In the colours of Al Shaqab Racing, AL DAWODIYA (Gutaifan) netted the first win of her career in the visitbath.co.uk Maiden Fillies’ Stakes, a Class 5 race for 3-year-olds and older females at Bath on Thursday, 6 August. She was highly regarded among the competitors and considered the favourite by some racing media, thanks to a promising third place in a handicap race in her last start.
In the hands of Sean Levey, AL DAWODIYA, wearing blinkers, settled a selective pace. The Richard Hannon-trained filly found an easy task in the straight and she secured a comfortable first victory with a 5-length margin.
AL DAWODIYA is a daughter of GUTAIFAN a young sire, who stands for Al Shaqab Racing at Yeomanstown Stud in Ireland. She was bought at the Arqana yearling Sale of August 2018. Her second dam has produced the MONT ORMEL (Air Chief Marshal), winner of the Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris (Gr1).
