Balius, Godolphin’s designated world traveller on the extreme international circuit, won the Anatolia Trophy over 2000 meters on the synthetic course at Veliefendi Racecourse in Istanbul, Turkey, today — the first day of the Istanbul International Racing Festival. Ridden by Frankie Dettori, the 6-year-old son of Mujahid covered the distance in 2:03.02 and earned $250,000 for Godolphin. The only other foreign raider, Philatelist, finished 8th.
Balius has competed in Europe, as well as at Nad Al Sheba, Kranji in Singapore, Sha Tin In Hong Kong, etc. He was bred in Ireland by Stilvi Compania Financiera Sa, the breeding entity of Leonidas and Marina Marinopoulos of Greece.
