Mailbag: Oasis Dream in Qatar

Thought you may be interested to see CLASSIC OASIS (SAF) who ran in the Qatar International Invitation Cup worth QR500 000 (approx US$140 000) last Thursday – he ran 4th, beaten about 3 lengths.

Classic Oasis (Classic Flag – Oasis by Centenary; MR 104 in SA) has had 7 runs in Qatar for 3 wins, 2 places including a win in the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani Trophy, 4th in the Heir Apparent Trophy and now 4th in the Qatar International Trophy.

The winner of this race, JOSHUA TREE (IRE) was rated 112 internationally, and is a previous winner of the Canadian International Trophy (Gr 1), 3rd place BEETHOVEN (IRE) was rated 117 internationally, and previously won the Dewhurst Stakes (Gr 1) and the Desmond Stakes (Gr 3) – both are looking at getting a run on Dubai World Cup night?

CLASSIC OASIS (SAF) is the one sitting in around 5th or 6th for most of the way in blue, with white stars.
