Fabulous World wins G3 for Mastercraftsman

Master The World (7g Mastercraftsman-Zadalla, by Zaha) took his career earnings to almost £400,000 with a win in the G3 Winter Derby at Lingfield on Saturday.

The David Elsworth-trained Mastercraftsman gelding also prevailed in Listed company at Lingfield in November.

Kevin Quinn, who part owns Master The World along with Chris Benham, commented: “He will come back for the Betway Easter Classic on Finals Day and would have a live chance based on that performance.

“He is a great horse and Sean Levey is a genius in the saddle. He’s a top jockey and David Elsworth will continue to pick Sean where he can. The team have done a great job with him and credit where credit is due.

“Master The World did brilliantly for us last year, winning the Betfred Mile at Goodwood, and it was the same sort of race as today – he was mid-division and flew home. This is his biggest victory and we are delighted to be a part of it.”

Master The World’s other part-owner Chris Benham added: “We adore the sport as owners and Master The World has been such a stalwart for us so we will continue investing in the sport and we would love another horse like this.

“Once he finds his stride, he lengthens so well and he’s just a great horse – we are just so pleased. This is why we want to be involved in the sport. It’s nice to take part, but it’s even better when you win.”

Master The World was bred by A Hanahoe.
