Racing over for E Dubai


LEXINGTON, Ky. - Grade 2 winner E Dubai has retired from racing and is expected to arrive on Nov. 1 at Sheikh Mohammed al Maktoum's Jonabell Farm in Kentucky.

E Dubai, a 4-year-old Mr. Prospector colt, will stand for a fee of $15,000. The winner of the Grade 2 Suburban Handicap at Belmont this year last ran in the Breeders' Cup Classic on Oct. 26, finishing 11th of 12. His last win was in the Suburban at Belmont Park on July 6.

A $1,350,000 Keeneland September yearling in 1999, E Dubai won half his 10 career starts, including the Suburban - in which he defeated 2000 juvenile champion Macho Uno, among others - and the 2001 Dwyer, also a Grade 2. He also finished second in three graded stakes last year: the Grade 1 Travers and Super Derby, and the Grade 2 Peter Pan. He retires with career earnings of $920,800.

E Dubai is the second foal and second stakes winner out of the multiple stakes-winning mare Words of War. Sired by Lord at War, Words of War earned more than $600,000 at the races before beginning her breeding career. Her other stakes-winner is Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks winner No Matter What, by Nureyev.

Arthur Hancock III and Stonerside Stable bred E Dubai in Kentucky.
