Ip Man nabs Meydan feature
Dubai, UAE, 21 January 2012 - Singapore-based trainer Steven Burridge has made a flying start to the 2012 Dubai World Cup Carnival and saddled his third winner from only four runners when Ip Man broke the track record in the concluding featured 1400m Saeed & Mohammed Al Naboodah Group handicap at Meydan on Saturday evening on a card, like Friday's, sponsored by the Al Naboodah Group.
Ip Man was produced with a withering late run by Oscar Chavez who now has the enviable record of two winners from two rides in the UAE. Burridge said: "That is only the horse's fifth start and we did not what to expect from him here in Dubai. We could well look at the UAE 2000 Guineas with him now as he is only three and hopefully has a lot more to offer."
