Persistence brought reward for Godolphin when Kementari became the first galloper to carry its royal blue colours to victory in Western Australia, and no-one was happier than husband and wife team Nacim and Lauren Dilmi.

The have-saddle-will-travel Godolphin staff members spent two weeks in Western Australian hotel quarantine preparing for the arrival of not only Kementari but also Trekking in late October. The Dilmis have led a nomadic existence in 2020, representing Godolphin in Adelaide and Brisbane before heading to Perth in search of Group One glory. And while neither Kementari nor Trekking won at the highest level at Ascot, Special K rid himself of his serial loser tag, letting down strongly to take out the AJ Scahill Stakes.

Godolphin’s Sydney-based Australian operation is committed to chasing black type victories all across this vast land. Any time, any place, anywhere. And, such is the Godolphin team’s professionalism, it is only a matter of time before a jockey wearing royal blue wins a Group One race in Perth.
