Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid at Newmarket to see Godolphin’s Pinatubo make it six out of six - in pictures
Charlie Appleby lauds 'special horse' after winning Darley Dewhurst Stakes
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid was in attendance to watch Godolphin’s Pinatubo round off a perfect juvenile campaign with victory in the Darley Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket.
The Vice-President and Ruler of Dubai watched on as Charlie Appleby's star made it six wins from six starts on the Rowley Mile.
And while Pinatubo did have to work hard, he was well on top at the line.
Ridden by William Buick, Pinatubo travelled well in the middle of pack before throwing down his challenge down the centre of the track.
Appleby said: "He has been a very special horse this year for all to see. I'm sure you saw him walking around the paddock – he is a horse that has this demeanour about him."
"In the mornings he goes about his business and I said to Will [Buick] before I legged him up, 'you would think he is an older horse walking around in a handicap here'."
