Throwback Race For Thursday - 07/01/21

Thunder Snow

Meydan Thursday's are back and in honour of the racing overseas which features the likes of Charlie Appleby and Saeed bin Suroor, we have thrown it back to one of the great races at the track in recent years.

Every year in Dubai, apart from 2020 with the ongoing crisis in the world, the Dubai World Cup has been the feature race in the calendar.

We have taken a look back at the latest renewal of the great race in 2019, which saw Saeed bin Suroor and Christophe Soumillon team up for the second year on the bounce to land back to back renewals with Thunder Snow.

The Dubai World Cup has been at the top of racings purse tree for some time with the event offering potential runners a chance to share out $12 million in winnings.

Thunder Snow in 2019 became the first horse in the history of the race to land the race twice and cemented himself as one of the top money earning horses in the sport.

His win in 2019 came in one of the great resumptions of the contest, with a nail biting photo finish having to split him and the reliable American Gronkowski.
