Martin Harley had to settle for 2nd place in the prestigious Dubai Gold Cup in Meydan earlier today. Harley’s mount, the David Simcock trained Sheikhzayedroad, came from a long way back but just failed to prevent the French trained favorite Vazirabab from making it three wins in a row on Workd Cup night. None the less another excellent performance by Harley in what’s been an outstanding season so far.
