Pinatubo retains perfect record in the Dewhurst
Godophlin’s new superstar Pinatubo extended his unbeaten run to six races in the Dewhurst Stakes on Saturday.
Immensely well-regarded, Pinatubo will end his debut season with a higher rating than Frankel at the same age.
Even though his most recent victory was won by a narrower margin, Pinatubo has without doubt further enhanced his reputation; showing the ability to win on testing ground as well as not shirking a battle in the finish.
Here’s some of the reaction to his victory on Saturday.
He showed staying power and ability to handle the ground – the perfect PINATUBO gets another Group 1 victory!
He looked as though he will stay the extra furlong – was this impressive enough to make him the 2020 QIPCO 2000 Guineas winner?pic.twitter.com/D8P63vMHMl

BOOM BOOM BOOM!! That is what all the hype is about!
It wasn't as easy as his other runs and fair play to Arizona who ran a great race!
But he is an absolute monster! The Godolphin flying machine wins again in the Dewhurst! 🐎👍

What a charming horse Pinatubo is. Possessed of a most equable temperaments, as per usual, he sauntered around the paddock before getting his job done soundly. Though no superlatives needed today, he nonetheless demonstrated that he can cope with soft ground.
