Warren Points Home Just in Time

It was another Charlie Appleby masterclass on the Meydan turf when Warren Point provided the highlight of a sparkling four-timer.

Fresh from winning four turf races on Fashion Friday, Appleby repeated the feat a week later, but it wasn’t all plain sailing. It took a last-minute dive for the line from Warren Point (pictured) and Mickael Barzalona to give the trainer an eighth win in the featured G3 Dubai Millennium Stakes [Presented by Al Tayer Motors].

Something of a globetrotter last season when a Listed win in Bahrain was followed by a second in Qatar and creditable runs in New York, the five-year-old was anchored at the back of the field early in the 2000metre contest. He was still there when the Jamie Osborne-trained pair of Solid Stone and Sean made their bids for glory. Charging along the rail, Sean and Adrie De Vries could smell the line, only to be accosted on it by Warren Point, successful by a short head.

“The horse did very well because he was a bit strong at the beginning,” said Barzalona. “I had the chance to go wide but I thought it was a bit early to go around horses, and then I was stuck. He’s been able to pick up again and win, he’s a talented horse.”
