Dee Ex Bee

One of the leading stayers of the 2019 British flat season Dee Ex Bee, along with two other stablemates from Mark Johnston's yard have been switched over to Dubai and will now be trained by Salem bin Ghadayer.

Dee Ex Bee alongside Charles Kingsley and Matterhorn will be aimed at a winter season at tracks like Meydan and others in the middle east but for Mark Johnston he has lost some of his most frequently ran horses last season that the majority of the time ran to a great standard.

The three horses are owned by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum and Johnston understands that the owners main man over in Dubai is Salem bin Ghadayer and he will do well with them.

(Credit Racing Post) He said: "We're used to having horses join Godolphin from here over the years but Salem bin Ghadayer is Sheikh Hamdan's main trainer out there so I understand Dee Ex Bee and the others have joined him.

"We've been told we'll be getting them back next year and hopefully they'll do well out there. There looks as if there's only one main race that Dee Ex Bee can go for which is the Group 2 Dubai Gold Cup on World Cup night."
