On May 1, Makfi achieved classic success in the 2,000 Guineas Stakes, only his third career start as he inhaled game runner-up Dick Turpin in the closing strides. Leading up to the classic he won the Prix Djebel as prep. Makfi pulling away late in the piece almost mirrored his Djebel success and in the same race included undefeated last years European Champion Two year old colt.[1]
