Doha, 11 March 2021 - Meshaal bin Ali Al Attiyah’s Aaley Al Magam (Amer x Abigaille) made a scintillating run on the inside on the home straight to win for the second straight time this season following his Al Zubara Trophy victory over the The Amir Sword Festival weekend with the Rodat Al Maida Cup (Local Purebred Arabian Conditions) at Al Uqda Complex yesterday.
In the dirt feature over 2,000m, JP Guillambert tracked leaders early on before finding traffic on the home straight, and instead choosing to go down the rails and edging out Umm Qarn’s Sealine, ridden by Soufiane Saadi for trainer Alban Elie De Mieulle, by a neck at the post.
Injaaz Stud’s Lekhraib, trained by Mohammed Ghazali, settled for a close third under Marco Casamento.
Earlier, Mohammed bin Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Attiya’s Ateej completed a hattrick following up his turf sprint victory over the Amir Sword Festival weekend with another one yesterday. In the Purebred Arabian Conditions event, the Gassim Ghazali schooled 8yo had Anas Al Seyabi for company, and the two did enough on the home straight to beat Faleh Bughanaim ridden Daloob by a length and three quarters.
Wadi Al Sail Racing’s Warsaan, Mansoor Mesfer Al Hajri’s Al Addaaj, Saad Rabiah Saad Al Kaabi’s Rafeeat Al Shan, Abdullah Mohammed Al Kuwari & Sons’ Shellbrook, Rashid bin Mubarak Aljafali Al Naimi’s Al Moataz, Noor Khalid Al Ahmed’s Madarek and Ibrahim Saeed Ibrahim Al Malki’s Al Gamamah also won their respective races.
