Declarationofpeace sat in last position in running for the Qatar Juvenile Turf Sprint Stakes (L), this Saturday at Del Mar, on the opening of the second day of the Breeders’ Cup. The colt, trained by Aidan O’Brien, put up a superb performance to come and snatch the victory from the British-trained runner, Sound and Silence. This race is named in honour of the partnership between QREC and the Breeders’ Cup. On 25 February this year in Doha, during the HH The Emir’s Sword Festival, the Breeders’ Cup Dukhan Sprint inaugurated this deal.
