YORKER is unlikely to be seen in action at the 2015 Dubai International Racing Carnival, Mike de Kock said on Wednesday, 4 March, 2015.
Yorker’s many South African followers were expecting to see his name among Mike’s runners carded for the much-anticipated Super Saturday meeting at Meydan this weekend, but the five-year-old son of Jet Master has not made enough progress during his short time in the UAE.

Mike commented: “Yorker has taken more time to adapt to conditions here than we anticipated. so we’ve backed off him. He hasn’t been working as well as he should be and given the time constraints we’ve had to rethink our plans. We’ll ship him on to the UK and play things by ear from our Newmarket stables. The horse will show us when he is ready.”
Yorker has won six of 14 career starts, including three Grade 1s.
