Noor Sahara, a daughter of top European sire Lope de Vega, makes her US debut today in Race 6 at Belmont Park for owners Madaket Stables, Siena Farm, Michael Dubb and Bethlehem Stables. Privately purchased in conjunction with Mandore Agency, Noor Shara won the Listed Prix de Pontarme at ParisLongchamp last May and arrives here on the back of a steady work tab that concluded with a bullet 4f drill at Palm Meadows on May 31st. Noor Sahara has been installed as the morning line 3-1 favorite and will be breaking from the far outside in the stakes quality allowance field.
