GODOLPHIN’S Farhh, trained by Saeed bin Suroor, will be supplemented to the QIPCO Sussex Stakes and take on the unbeaten Frankel in the Group One Goodwood mile race next Wednesday, August 1, provided the ground is not too fast.
Simon Crisford, the Godolphin racing manager, announced the decision by Sheikh Mohammed, Godolphin’s founder and driving force, at a Goodwood press conference.
He explained: “We are really excited to be running Farhh in the QIPCO Sussex Stakes. The timing of the race is perfect, three weeks and a few days after his excellent second in the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown.
“I asked Sheikh Mohammed what his preferred option was, the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, in which he could come second to Frankel if not win, or the Jacques Le Marois at Deauville. He said ‘I want to go to Goodwood’.
“We are delighted that Farhh is going to be there, provided the ground is not too firm.
