uae riders continued their splendid performance with ghanim al marri easing his horse ro al lisain to a convincing win in the 100-km shaikh mansour bin zayed al nahyan endurance festival cup on the final day of the shaikh mansour bin zayed al nahyan global arabian horse flat racing festival’s five day extravaganza came at the king’s forest in tetford uk on sunday.

while al marri topped the pack of riders competing in the purebred arabian endurance horses’ category the spanish duo of alejandro dachs izquierdo and nuria serrabassa fabre made it a 1-2 in the category for purebred arabian horses that have earlier in their careers races in flat races.

alejandro on zen al maury and nuria on tidjari two flat-race horses now in endurance did very well to win the 100-km one star which was run in four stages of 32kms 32kms 20kms and 16kms.

“all three of us in fact did an extra 12kms as we got lost in the forest” said the 26 year old alejandro. the winner of the 120-km catalunya championship in barcelona last year alejandro is keen to fight and get a place in the strong spanish national team.

for al marri it was his second win in two weeks after winning the 120-km ride in compiegne on may 25.

“it was a tough ride we lost our way and rode extra kilometers but it is good to win in the end” said the 18-year-old star rider from the uae.

abdul rahman ghanim al mutaiwee uae ambassador to the united kingdom; asim mirza al rahma the uae ambassador to the republic of poland; shaikha najla al qassimi; saqr nasser ahmed al raisi uae’s ambassador to portugal; abdul aziz nasser al shamsi; uae ambassador to italy dr hessa abdullah ahmed al otaiba uae’s ambassador to spain; sulaiman almazroui ambassador of the uae to belgium; and al asri saeed al dhaheri ambassador of the uae to morocco; abdul rahim al awadi from the ministry of foreign affairs; adnan sultan al nuaimi adec director general; abdul mohsin al dossary vice-president at the general authority of youth and sports welfare and lara sawaya executive director of the shaikh mansour bin zayed al nahyan global arabian horse flat racing festival and chairman of ladies racing at the international federation of arabian horse racing authorities (ifahr) gave away the trophies to the two sets of winners.

“it has been a great end to one of the most important week in the calendar of the shaikh mansour bin zayed al nahyan global arabian horse flat racing festival. while the three-day world arabian horse racing conference in london discussed some crucial issues related to purebred arabian horses the two races at newbury reflected the growth with more nations being represented. and today this endurance ride open only to purebred arabian horses in king’s forest was also a huge hit” said lara sawaya.

genny haynes of the aro said “hosting the conference here in the uk will certainly boost arabian racing here and it was a historic event.”
