Michael Owen and Manor House Stables romped to victory today when their prize horse, Brown Panther won the 2015 Dubai Gold Cup.
The race held at Maydan Racecourse in Dubai was the 11th win of Brown Panther’s illustrious career so far and has now added some more silverware to the growing trophy cabinet at Manor House Stables. The win was not only a special one for his owner’s, but for jockey Richard Kingscote who has only recently returned to racing following a serious fall at Wolverhampton in November 2014.
Owen who was joined in Dubai by his family spoke of the latest victory:
‘Brown Panther had been “a superstar from day one and this man [Dascombe] has trained him to perfection. He always jumps really well out of the traps and he found himself right up there. The rest is history, as they say. He’s a special horse. I’ll probably never replace a horse like this,”
