Dothraki Wins 2014 Gold Coast Guineas – Results

May 5th, 2014

Gerald Ryan’s progressive young Mossman colt Dothraki went one step closer to a Group 1 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival assignment when they won the Gold Coast Guineas 2014 in Queensland over the weekend.

The three-year-old, paying $5 in the markets, proved the best in the bumper field for this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Attwood Marshall Lawyers Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) with their long neck win over the Peter Snowden-trained Safeguard ($10).

Safeguard was the final Queensland runner for Snowden whilst training for Darley, the master horseman going out on his own from Sunday, and they were a full length ahead of the Roslyn Pratt-trained Gold Coast Guineas third placed Palmera Lad ($21).

The hot $2.70 favourite Enquare meanwhile could only manage to finish two and a quarter lengths away from the winner in seventh.

Ryan has always had a high opinion of Dothraki who has now won three of their dozen career starts for over $345,000 in prize money.

He’ll look to continue their rise through the ranks this winter in the sunshine start, earmarking them for a possible shot at the $1.36 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm Racecourse on June 7.

Their next race leading up to that elite level assignment will be in the $125,000 Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) at Doomben May 17.

From there they’ll go to the $350,000 Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m) on Oaks Day, May 31, which offers a Stradbroke Handicap ballot exemption to the winner.
