John Ferguson, bloodstock agent to Sheikh Mohammed said, "It's been a fantastic
weekend. (Travers winner) Bernardini is a great horse and we couldn't be more pleased. I'm so
pleased that Sheikh Rashid, Sheikh Mohammed's son is here because he's a
huge enthusiast. Having Henny Hughes win the King's Bishop, it's really made it a magical day for the Maktoum family.
Sheikh Mohammed's so sorry he can't be here. As the ruler of Dubai, he's busy at the moment, he's
got so much going on, he felt he couldn't get away. With Discreet Cat,
Ashkal Way, Incriminate, Henny Hughes and Bernardini it's been a magical
two days." Henny Hughes will go in the Vosburgh next, in his first start against older competition.
