Do It All garners G2 Zabeel Mile
Thursday, March 01, 2012
Do It All became Distorted Humor's 109th career stakes winner on March 1, with a front-running victory in the $250,000 Zabeel Mile (G2) at Meydan Racecourse in Dubai. The 5-year-old is spending his first winter in the Middle East after racing primarily in southern California, where he was third in the Grade 2 San Fernando S. last year.

Breaking from post nine in the field of 12, Do It All made the lead soon after the start. Pursued nearly the entire way by Derbaas, Do It All had plenty left in the stretch to finish in front by 1 3/4-length in a 1:38.80 for the “about mile” distance on the good turf.

"He is a big horse who had needed his two starts badly (previously this year in Dubai) and has improved fitness-wise throughout the year," winning rider Silvestre de Sousa said. "I was allowed to dictate my own terms and then he quickened well."

Do It All, a $900,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga August yearling in 2008, improved his record to 12-4-1-1, earning $271,267 for Godolphin. Bred in Kentucky by Winsong Farm, Do It All is out of Stupendous Miss, winner of the All Along Breeders' Cup S. (G3).

Champion Sire of 2011, Distorted Humor has sired 44 Group/Graded stakes winners, 12 G1 winners among his 110 stakes winners.
