The Wilgerbosdrift bred Noah From Goa has been entered for the 2017 Dubai World Cup, set to be run this year at Meydan racecourse on March 25th.
Third when making his Dubai debut recently in the G2 Al Fahdi Fort, Noah From Goa has also been entered in the G1 Dubai Turf, and G2 Godolphin Mile.
Trained by Mike De Kock, and a R325 000 buy from the 2014 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, Noah From Goa ranked among the best of his generation in South Africa, where he won five of seven outings including the G1 Grand Parade Cape Guineas and G2 Investec Dingaans.
The chestnut also ran third to champions Legal Eagle and Legislate in the 2016 G1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, where “Noah” had such top class performers as Act Of War, Captain America, Master Sabina, and former Horse Of The Year Futura behind him.
By Wilgerbosdrift’s former leading first crop sire Tiger Ridge, Noah From Goa is one of six winners produced by the Fort Wood mare Limerick, whose five wins included the Listed Allez France Handicap.
