Sprint Sensation: HH Sheikh Hamdan’s Horse Wins Big In The UK’s Glorious Goodwood Race

Saddle up for the unstoppable Battaash, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s favoured racehorse, who on Friday became the first to win the Group 2 contest thrice in a row at the Glorious Goodwood festival in the United Kingdom.

Saddled by Charlie Hills, Battaash aced the five-furlong sprint by ¾ lengths at the Goodwood Racecourse. HH Sheikh Hamdan was thrilled to witness his horse’s historic win. “It’s such a pleasure to be involved in a horse like this. To win three King George Stakes, I think it’s the first time it has ever been done,” Charlie Hills, who has trained Battaash, told Racing TV in an interview. “I’m quite emotional, he’s a special horse…” We look forward to many more sprint-acular wins for Battaash.
