Sheikh doesn’t tolerate excuses

Sheikh Mohammed Ibaid had plenty to say at York last week following Postponed’s Juddmonte Internmtional victory, that he expected his trainers to obey his wishes.

Last Autumn the Sheikh famously removed 30 horses, in the care of Luca Cumani at Newmarket, and sent them to Roger Varian.

According to the Sheikh, it wasn’t linked to Postponed having failed to win any of his first three starts for Cumani, who saddled High Rise to win the Derby in 1998.

Postponed landed the money at his start of 2015 in the King George, and then the Prix Foy before a change of yards.

“When I tell a trainer something he has to listen,” said the Sheikh, who also has horses with Simon Crisford and Richard Hughes, when questioned he said,” I asked one thing, to get Postponed ready before the race and he said he can’t.”

“He told me after running Postponed three times, he is not ready that’s a problem.”

“He has to get him ready, I am military if I give someone an order, he has to take my order, I say the same to Simon.”

“If I tell you, you have to run in this race, you have to run, I won’t take excuses,” said the Sheikh.
