Electrocutionist, by Red Ransom out of Elbaaha (by Arazi), was successful three times in 2005, including in the Gran Premio di Milano and in the Juddmonte International at York, winning by a neck from Zenno Rob Roy.

Godolphin`s Electrocutionist then won his first run on dirt when landing the Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum Challenge (Group 2) over 2,000m, sponsored by Derrinstown Stud, by seven lengths at Nad Al Sheba on thursday evening 2 March 2006.

Electrocutionist then became the eleventh winner of the World`s richest race, the Dubai World Cup.

It seemed a very difficult task at the post position draw when the Frankie Dettori partnered five year old was handed stall one, as no runner from stall one had finished in the first three in the previous ten runnings of the Dubai World Cup.

In the 2006 Dubai World Cup, Electrocutionist was in mid division as the field headed down the straight with Brass Hat leading. Electrocutionist made strong progress at the 400 metre post and three horses, Brass Hat, Wilko and Electrocutionist battled to the line, with Electrocutionist winning by a length and a half from the subsequently disqualified Brass Hat and Jeremy Noseda’s Wilko in third.

His next race was the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot, where he finished half a length second to Ouija Board.

Electrocultionist is trained by Saeed bin Suroor.
