OUR MACHINE'S DAUGHTER - LOVE TO DANCE
30 January 2016 Al Ain, UAE ~ The most valuable race on the card was the finale, the Al Hili Handicap (1000m) and the Musabah Al Muhairi-trained LOVE TO DANCE (Our Machine (US) x Shall We Dance BW (US) by LINE DANCER (US)), was soon out in front having her first dirt outing locally. The five-year-old LOVE TO DANCE was not to be caught and had more than three lengths to spare at the winning post. Formerly a Grade Three winner in her native USA and Darley Champion 3 Year Old Filly of 2014, she was recording a fifth career win, all on dirt and relishing being on what some felt was clearly her favorite surface.
LOVE TO DANCE proved two weeks later on Valentines Day that the Turf surface was also to her liking - she won the Muroor Purebred Arabian Handicap on the turf in Abu Dhabi, turning in a speedy winning time of 1:18.19 for 1200m(a6F) and earning 90,000 AED for the effort. She won by a length margin over Ain Jaloot, by Amer. Running third by a short head was a mare by Bibi De Carerre and fourth was a horse by Munjiz.
