This would be the first time Bombay Bazaar will race on a track in the Middle East. This horse has had a mixed career, including two consecutive victories at the prestigious Beverly Racecourse. However, with rider Tadhg O’Shea on the saddle, Bombay Bazaar would be looking forward to a great 2024 season debut. This is also the first time the horse will be running under the guidance of trainer Bhupat Seemar, as it was announced by Dubai Racing Club on X.

The footage of the horse’s Beverly stint was shared with the announcement by Dubai Racing Club. Even though the horse was running second-last until the penultimate turn of the race, the gelding maintained its speed the whole way. Bombay Bazaar came charging in from the outside to upset Fusterlandia in a nail-biter as the leader’s pace weakened. Watching his horse win for the second consecutive time was a monumental occasion for its former trainer, Richard Fahey. Having switched trainers, however, the 2024 campaign would be a whole different scenario for the equine.
