The fixture kicked off with the fifth and final Purebred Arabian race of the Jebel Ali campaign on March 5, a 1400m handicap for horses foaled in the UAE and turned into a procession by Maqam (Abu Alemarat x Wycked by Burning Sand), ridden by Antonio Fresu for Eric Lemartinel and Sheikha Alyazia bint Sultan Al Nahyan. It was a third career win for the 5-year-old homebred entire, a close fourth over 1700m at Sharjah just six days ago, when ridden by Fresu for the first time.
Fresu said: “This is a nice horse who was a bit unlucky last time at Sharjah after a slow break when we were in traffic which he did not enjoy.
Lemartinel added: “This straight course has really suited him as we thought it would. He has run plenty of good races, but we thought these conditions would be ideal and that has proved to be the case.”
