ETIJAAH notched the seventh win and pushed his earnings over $283,000 with a strong closing kick to take the Curlin H. by 2 1/2 lengths. The homebred son of DAAHER raced in midpack for about the first mile of this 1 1/4-mile race on the main track at Meydan. With a little over two furlongs to run, ETIJAAH began to close in on the leaders. He took advantage of an opening along the rail and seized the lead with 1 1/2 furlongs to run and pulled away with a strong stretch run to get the win. ETIJAAH is out of Hasheema (IRE), by Darshaan (GB).
