Majestic Thunder was the final purchase for the 2018/19 UAE Season, and like most of them has joined Satish Seemar at Zabeel.
An unraced Dubawi gelding, he was a purchased at the latest Racing In Dubai Sale and we were delighted to get him for just 80,000 AED.
This well-bred sort is out of the Group 2-placed Flame Of Gibraltar and is a full-brother to Dubawi Flame, a winner from just 5 starts in Qatar, while his 2yo half-sister by Shamardal has also shown plenty in maidens for Godolphin this year. We were impressed by him physically at the sale, looking a typical sort by his all-conquering stallion.
He’s come a long way since being purchased and made a hugely encouraging debut at Meydan in February to finish third over 7f. Despite getting very worked up beforehand, he finished very strongly in the straight to show there’s a lot of ability to go with a quirk or two. He’ll be back out in a maiden before the season ends, while his future lies over further and despite already being a 4yo, remains a longer term prospect.
