Maiuf, Joudy, Muthhil and Abahat winners of the Third Meeting in Doha
Ronan Thomas and Maiuf
Al Shaqab Racing’s MAIUF (TM Fred Texas x Mayada) picked up from where he left off last season racing to his third victory since his arrival in Qatar late last year. Stepping up in distance from a mile and switching surfaces to dirt seemed no problem for Alban Elie Marie De Mieulle’s charge in the 1900m PUREBRED ARABIAN HANDICAP (105 & below) as Ronan Thomas and his partner held off a thrilling pursuit from Alberto Sanna ridden Baker De Saularie and Carlos Henrique helmed Winne Taouy to win by half a length on October 21.
Alberto Sanna and Joudy
Al Wasmiyah Farm’s JOUDY (Seraphin Du Paon x Tarabulus Al Wasmiya) rode the momentum she gathered in a C&D maiden last week to register her first career win on Wednesday. After Alberto Sanna guided the Georges Mikhalides ward to third place on the opening day of the season, the 4yo lined up with the Italian in the saddle again for the six-furlong PUREBRED ARABIAN HANDICAP (75 & below). The grey filly raced to a memorable four and a quarter length victory at the post in the sprint.
Saleh Salem Al Marri and Muthhil
Qatar bred MUTHHIL (Amer x New Princess) made a fantastic debut on dirt on Wednesday winning the PUREBRED ARABIAN MAIDEN PLATE in a comfortable fashion. Ridden by Qatari rider Saleh Salem Al Marri in the colours of Khalifa Bin Sheail Al Kuwari, the 5yo, who had been largely unexposed in Qatar since arrival from France, started wider than most in Gate 6 and did well to finish a length and a half in front of rivals in the 1700m run. It was Muthhil’s sixth career outing and Al Marri’s second win of the day.
Ronan Thomas and Abahat
Umm Qarn has a new winning debutant in ABAHAT (Al Mamun Monlau x Al Anqa). The 4yo led a one-two for the colours and trainer Alban Elie Marie De Mieulle in the PUREBRED ARABIAN MAIDEN PLATE (4-YEAR-OLDS ONLY) in the first race of the day on Wednesday. In the 1700m run, Ronan Thomas was in the saddle on the grey colt as he beat stablemate and fellow debutant Bakir, helmed by Soufiane Saadi, by half a length for a fine victory.
