The Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC) organised the 10th race meeting in the 2021-22 season calendar of the Al Uqda Racecourse on Thursday, 22 January.

The six-race card day was run on turf and was wrapped up with the feature event, Al Judhay Cup, a 2100m Maiden for 4-6YOs Purebred Arabian. The Cup was landed by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani’s Hameed (FR, Amer x Arc De Ciel) who gave a perfect debut by winning a cup race on his first ever attempt on racecourses. Alberto Sanna recorded a double on the day as he steered the Rudy Nerbonne-trained 4YO colt to a half-length victory.

The Mohammed Khalifa T R Al-Sowaidi-owned and Hamad Al-Jehani-trained Posuelo Py (FR, AF AlBahar x La Ranna PY) finished second under Marco Casamento a length in front of the Umm Qarn-owned and Alban de Mieulle-trained MATRAZ (FR) (Tabarak), who was ridden by Ronan Thomas.
