Returning from an extended break, BURIDAN was back in the winners’ circle for the Al Shaqab Racing silks, winning a Claiming Handicap at Newcastle, UK, on Tuesday 22 October 2019. The 4-year-old gelding, who is trained by Richard Hannon, sat mid-division in this 1200-meter sprint. He came quickly to take the lead from WARSAW ROAD at the final furlong marker. The two battled to the line, with BURIDAN proving the better on this occasion to win by a neck with Sean Levey in the saddle.
This was BURIDAN’s fourth career win. He currently posts an international rating of 91. He was bought at the Arqana Breeze Up as a 2-year-old.
