Dubai World Cup 2014 - Dubai Sheema Classic

The Japan Cup winner Gentildonna showed her class and heart fighting through a crowd to win the $5M Sheema Classic. Cirrus Des Aigles was second and another mare Ambivalent was third. Of course all three are descendants of Northern Dancer.

1) Gentildonna (JPN) - great great granddaughter x3 through Danzig and Bertolini
2) Cirrus Des Aigles (FR) - great great great grandson through Nijinsky
3) Ambivalent (IRE) - great great great grandson x3 through Montjeu/Sadlers Wells and Dance Spell

The race was marred by tragedy as the Irish bred great grandson Mars died of a heart attack during the race. It is so hard to witness this aspect of the sport but it always looms.
