Bio: Dubai-born Saeed bin Suroor has been training horses for Godolphin – the operation founded by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum – since 1995. He splits his time between Goldolphin Stables in Newmarket, Suffolk and Al Quoz Stables in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Nevertheless, Saeed bin Suroor has been Champion Trainer in Britain four times, in 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2004 and has saddled twelve British Classic winners. The first of them was Moonshell in the Vodafone Oaks in June, 1995 and the second came just 24 hours later when Lammtarra produced a strong burst in the final furlong to win the Vodafone Oaks. In a ‘heady’ debut season, Saeed bin Suroor also saddled Halling to win the Coral-Eclipse Stakes and the Juddmonte International Stakes, Lammtarra to win the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and Classic Cliché to win the fifth, and final, Classic of the season, the St. Leger.
In 23 seasons, he has won the 2,000 Guineas twice, 1,000 Guineas twice, the Derby, the Oaks twice and the St. Leger fives times. All in all, he has saddled over 2,000 winners, including hundreds at the highest level.
