THE MADJANI STAKES: RB FRYNCHH DUDE RULES THE ROOST ON DIRT

MEYDAN (UAE), DECEMBER 17th, 2020

Gr2  PA - 4-year-olds and up - 1,900m - €23,673

After two below par efforts on turf, RB Frynchh Dude (Baseq Al Khalediah) rediscovered the dirt and a left-handed track in the Madjani Stakes (Gr2 PA). Furthermore, there’s no escaping that the Byerley Racing-owned runner didn’t stand on ceremony by recording an easy win, his first in the UAE. After a good start which entailed briefly taking the lead, the Helal Al Alawi trainee let Sauternes Al Maury (Mahabb) assume the initiative, as the future winner cannily waited to pounce after racing in the latter’s slipstream. Going to the final 800 metres, when the pacesetter started to send out distress signals, jockey Pat Cosgrave decided to kick-on aboard RB Frynchh Dude. Leaving his rivals rooted to the spot, the winner drew two lengths clear at the line. Hailing from the stable of Frenchman Éric Lemartinel, the mare Amwaj (Abu Alemarat) was second. Aoun (Mahabb), a familiar name in France and currently trained by Jean-Claude Pecout, finished like the proverbial train and was a head shy

of capturing second. After seven prior runs in the US, which included a win in the Texas Arabian Derby (Gr3 PA), RB Frynchh Dude was sent to race in the UAE this season. Undoubtedly a little out of his comfort zone after two runs at Abu Dhabi in conditions which were radically different to what he is used to, he proved that he is the genuine article on dirt.

THE OBAIYA CUP AND THE KAHAYLA CLASSIC IN HIS SIGHTS

Jockey Pat Cosgrave told the local press: "He wasn’t disgraced last time at Abu Dhabi on a surface he didn’t like, and despite a bad draw and having to race on a right-handed track which he isn’t used to. He’s an intelligent horse as you can place him anywhere you like during a race, and tactically he’s very versatile. I would think that he will head to Saudi Arabia for the big race there. Clearly, were he to run well, he could return for the big PA race on the Dubai World Cup evening. He’s a horse worth following."

Trainer Helal Al Alawi added: "I’ve always liked him and he’s the best PA horse in my stable. I knew that he was going to run well today; even if you can never be sure with PA horses. It was a very impressive display. We’re clearly going to aim him at some top races."

RELATED TO FRYNCH

RB Frynchh Dude was bred in Florida by Dianne Waldron at Rosebrook Farm. He’s out of RB Frynch Broad (Madjani), the best US 4-year-old distaffer of her generation when successful in the Cre Run Oaks Arabian Distaff Stakes (Gr2 PA) and the Texas Arabian Oaks Stakes (Gr3 PA). Four of the progeny of the grandam Frynch (Dormane), second in the Arabian Cup Juvenile Filly Stakes (Gr1), went on to gain black type, including Rich Frynchman (TH Richie), the winner of the Arabian Classic Handicap (Gr1) in which he accounted for TM Fred Texas (Burning Sand).

The great grandam Fryga (Wiekli Raz) won 20 races in the US and she foaled Fryvolous (Dormane), the Dubai Kahayla Classic (Gr1 PA) victor.
