Despite not winning either of the Group One races at Rosehill, the Godolphin team has had a big day ahead of World Cup night in Dubai.
Havana Cooler brought up the fourth winner for Sheikh Mohammed’s Australian operation on Saturday with his win in the Doncaster Prelude (1400m).
Havana Cooler will not line up in next week’s $3 million Doncaster but could have some winter targets in Queensland.
“I thought they might be a bit sharp for him at the 1500 metres,” trainer John O’Shea said.
“He’s probably a horse we really had pegged for after The Championships with the capacity to get to a mile and a half when we get to Brisbane.”
Havana Cooler ($7.50) came late to beat Cosmic Cube ($6.50) by half neck with a half length to Rudy ($10).
Godolphin’s other wins came from Federal in a benchmark race, Old North in the Group Two Tulloch Stakes and It’s Somewhat in the Group Three Neville Sellwood Stakes with all four ridden James McDonald.
