Alamshar's owner the Aga Khan said: 'I am very pleased indeed. 'Alamshar and Dalakhani both had logical reasons to run in the Irish Derby and before that race I did say that I was aiming Alamshar at this race. Dalakhani is having an autumn campaign.
'The two horses had a programme that was going to clash in the Irish Derby but probably not after that but who knows.
'I think Alamshar has improved since his Irish Derby victory. I really don't know if Alamshar and Dalakhani will meet again.
'Good horse's programmes need to be developed race by race and that is what I am trying to do.

Norman Foster, Frank Gehry oder Renzo Piano werden ihn wahrscheinlich nie bekommen, den kaum bekannten und doch höchstdotierten Architekturpreis der Welt, den der Aga Khan alle drei Jahre vergibt.

His Highness the Aga Khan, Imam (spiritual leader) of the Ismaili Muslims and Zanzibar's Chief Minister Shamsi Vuai Nahodha today signed an Agreement of Co-operation to initiate a comprehensive urban rehabilitation proposal for the Seafront Area of Zanzibar's Stone Town, after a private meeting with President Amani Abeid Karume.
The Seafront Area, characterised by many historic buildings and public open spaces, is one of the most culturally and economically significant parts of the Stone Town, itself recently recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Honoured Guests,Ladies and Gentlemen:
I believe profoundly that architecture is not just about building. It is a means of improving people's quality of life. At its best, it should mirror the plurality of cultural traditions and the diverse needs of communities, both urban and rural. At the same time it must employ modern technologies to help fulfill desirable aspirations for the future.

Comments: Did you know that at a race meeting yesterday at Longchamp, France, Hazar Imam's horse Dalakhani won.. Hazar Imam was there, it seemed on His own and He gave a very short interview talking about the Arc race in 3 weeks time, he said he hadn't made His mind up as to which horse would be running etc.. the jockey riding the horse yesterday was Soumillion. Hazar Imam looked happy, wearing a navy suit and was pleased to accept the trophy. Don't have a recording of the race as it caught me on the hop.
