Gr1 Middle Park Stakes winner Crusade’s half-sister by Galileo, Seventh Heaven, will be contesting the Gr1 Longines Dubai Sheema Classic tomorrow evening on Dubai World Cup night where she will take on stable mate, Highland Reel (IRE) and looks to capture her third Gr1 victory.

Rated 119, the dual Gr1 winning four year old filly will be ridden by Seamie Heffernan over the 2410m stretch for traine Aiden O’Brien. Seventh Heaven has a 6th draw and defeated Arc winner Found in the Gr1 Yorkshire Oaks. Seventh Heaven also won the Gr1 Irish Oaks at the Curragh and placed fourth in the Gr1 Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Turf.

Crusade has produced his first winner with filly Miss Millionaire on debut and over 12 have placed closely – look out for them in the weeks to come as many are due to enter the winners enclosure after placing close seconds.

Our National Yearling Sales draft includes a Crusade half-brother to Gr1 Gold Cup winner, Wild One and Save The Rhino, as well as a half-sister to Stakes winner, Matador Man.
