Dalil De Carrrere comfortably won the fifth Wathba Stallions Cup race
In the Wathba Stallions Cup For Private Owner Only, restricted to horses in private ownership, the opening 2000m handicap was won comfortably by Dalil De Carrrere, continuing the good weekend for Brazilian jockey Bernardo Pinheiro who also landed the first race at Meydan the previous evening, the Group 2 Bani Yas aboard Jayide Al Boraq.
Riding on this occasion in the silks of Saif Bakheet Saif Murshed Al Marar for trainer Mohamed Daggash, Pinheiro settled his mount just behind the leaders before navigating an inside route on the home turn, saving valuable ground and hitting the front halfway up the straight.
The 7-year-old entire shot clear, breaking the track record and doubling his career haul in the process having won a 2000m Al Ain maiden three weeks ago.
Pinheiro said: “The horse obviously likes it here at Al Ain and we know he stays further, so I was happy to commit about a fair way out fully aware he would keep going all the way to the line.”
