Gorgeous Grey Wins for Godolphin
Tara Madgwick - Saturday August 10
Talented grey Godolphin blue-blood Subedar is a descendant of the mighty mare Emancipation and kept his unbeaten record intact at his first metropolitan outing when saluting at Rosehill on Saturday.

Subedar returns a winner - images Steve HartHe relished the tougher assignment, hitting the line hard for Kerrin McEvoy to win by a long head and has now won two from two earning a tick over $100,000.

"He's a beautiful horse and another promising Sepoy emerging from the stable," said James Cummings.

"He has a really good winning attitude and keeps sticking his neck out. He's a horse we like a lot and he's definitely going places."

Subedar is the fourth winner from four foals to race from Anabaa's dual Group I winning daughter Virage de Fortune, who was bought by Darley for $3.4 million at the 2007 Inglis Easter Broodmare Sale.
