Aaley Al Magam wins Rodat Al Maida Cup
Aaley Al Magam ridden by JP Guillambert
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 HH The Amir Sword Festival weekend with the Rodat Al Maida Cup (Local Purebred Arabian Conditions) at Al Uqda Complex on Wednesday, March 10. In the dirt feature over 2000m, 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 (Amer x Jaljalah), ridden by Soufiane Saadi for trainer Alban Elie De Mieulle, by a neck at the post. Injaaz Stud’s LEKHRAIB (AF AlBahar x Grace T), trained by Mohammed Ghazali, settled for a close third under Marco Casamento.
Ateej ridden by Anas Al-Seyabi
Mohammed Bin Ahmed Bin Mohammed Al Attiya’s ATEEJ (AF AlBahar x Sahara Croixnoire) completed a hattrick following up his turf sprint victory over the HH The Amir Sword Festival weekend with another one on dirt at Al Uqda Complex on Wednesday. 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.
Mansoor Mesfer Al Hajri’s AL ADDAAJ (Zaeem Al Shajaa x Sho’alat Al Wajba) had only won sprints coming into the 2000m Local Purebred Arabian Handicap (75 & below) on Wednesday. But eventually the longer trip did not prove to be much of a trouble as Meteb Ali Al Marri guided the 5yo to a thrilling victory in the race, edging out Alberto Sanna ridde Fanann by a head at the post.
Saad Rabiah Saad Al Kaabi’s RAFEEAT AL SHAN (AF AlBahar x Foze) completed a C&D double at Al Uqda Complex when she landed the Purebred Arabian Handicap (80 & below). The Ibrahim Saeed Al Malki trained mare had Anas Al Seyabi in the saddle for the 1100m sprint and the Qatar bred 5yo combined well with the jockey for the second straight time to register a fine win, finishing ahead of the competition with a length and a quarter to spare.
