The OBS Polar Express rolls in Meydan’s UAE 1000 Guineas

Valentin Bukhtoyarov & Evgeny Kappushev’s unbeaten Polar River made short work of the $250 UAE 1000 Guineas at Meydan on Thursday,  (VIDEO), once again demolishing graded stakes winner Promising Run, this time by 13 lengths.  Trained by Doug Watson, the 3-year-old daughter of Congrats is three for three by a combined 31-1/4 lengths, and has earned $215,423 to date. She was purchased for $40,000 out of the Eisaman Equine consignment on behalf of her owners by Ireland’s Tony Watkins, after breezing an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show prior to the 2015 OBS April Sale. Mr. Watkins and his son David were on their first visit to OBS. watch her under tack video
