Peter Mooney’s dramatic photo captures the moment BURATINO winning the Coventry Stakes, Royal Ascot June 16th 2015. BURATINO was recently acquired by the Godolphin but demonstrated absolutely why new owner Sheikh Mohammed was interested
The 6-1 winner was making his debut in the Godolphin blue having transferred from the ownership of the sheikh’s son, Sheikh Hamdan, in whose colours he won at Epsom on Derby Day.
William Buick, riding his first season as Godolphin retained rider along with James Doyle, was delighted with the winner who carried the second colours behind Round Two, the 9-4 favourite trained for Godolphin in Ireland by Jim Bolger.
“He’s come on for every run and travelled so well,” Buick said of the Mark Johnston-trained colt.
“It’s huge to get a winner here so early on and I’m very pleased to get it for my boss and the team. He’s the most exciting two-year-old who’s around at the moment.”
