Wolf Whistle back for Group 3


Wolf Whistle will attempt to improve upon his record-setting victory four weeks ago in Thursday night's Group 3 Al Rashidiya at Nad Al Sheba.

A South African 6-year-old trained by Mike de Kock, Wolf Whistle broke Ipi Tombe's 1 1/8-mile turf track mark when he won a handicap in 1:46.48 at Nad Al Sheba on Jan. 27. The $200,000 Al Rashidiya will be run over the same course and distance as that over which Wolf Whistle set his record.

Shakis, second in his Nad Al Sheba debut on Feb. 3, has an upset chance, as does the Clive Brittain-trained Membership.
