Nations Pride stars on quality card


Grade 1 winner Nations Pride stars on quality Carnival card

Nations Pride is the star turn on the seventh night of Dubai World Cup Carnival action at Meydan Racecourse, which features runners from 10 different countries.

Nations Pride (pictured) defends his perfect Meydan record in the G3 Dubai Millennium Stakes, race six, over 2000metres on turf. The winner of the inaugural Jumeirah Derby here in 2022, he went on to Grade I success in the Saratoga Derby in New York and followed that with success in the G3 Jockey Club Derby at Aqueduct.

“Nations Pride has been pleasing us at home and coming back to a mile and a quarter should suit, said trainer Charlie Appleby, who has won this race six times, including with Royal Fleet 12 months ago. “There will be some improvement to come for whatever he does on his seasonal return, as we hope that he has another international campaign ahead of him this year. Depending on how he goes here, we will consider potentially looking at the Jebel Hatta or the Dubai Turf.”
