Back-to-Back Handicap Winners for DAAHER

Sons of Grade 1 winner DAAHER won consecutive races, each high-level handicaps, at Meydan. EJRAAM has now won or placed in six of his last eight starts after taking a six-furlong sprint on the main dirt track by 1/2 length. Tracking the leaders early, he took command a furlong out and ran on to be first to the wire. ETIJAAH was winning for the third time in his last five starts taking a 1 1/4-mile main track event by 1 1/2 lengths. Settling at the back early on, he began to advance on the frontrunners with three furlongs to go, took the lead about the 1/16th pole and pulled away from there. EJRAAM is out of the Danehill mare, Abby Road, and ETIJAAH is out of the Darshaan mare, Hasheema. Both are Shadwell Farm homebreds.
