E Dubai Adds US Gr2
In the US, Gr1-winning former Darley shuttler E Dubai (Mr Prospector-Words Of War, by Lord At War) added a graded-stakes success when favoured 6YO gelding Aggie Engineer (E Dubai-Papalma, by Dixieland Band) scored a 3.25-lengths victory in the US$150,000 Gr2 San Pasqual Stakes (8.5 furlongs) for 4YOs & up at Santa Anita Park in California. Aggie Engineer (ridden by Joseph Talamo for trainer Patrick Gallagher) defeated 6YO entire Spurrier (Dixieland Band-Humble, by Valiant Nature) & 5YO entire Quindici Man (Came Home-Humble, by Valiant Nature). Aggie Engineer now has 7 wins (also including 2010's Gr3 Native Diver Handicap over 9 furlongs at Hollywood Park) & 6 placings (including 2010's Listed Wicker Handicap over 8 furlongs at Del Mar) from 17 starts for US$358,279 earnings.
