The 5 yr old grey Raihan, owned by Sheik Abdullah Bin Khalifa Al Thani, the former Prime Minister of Qatar, was by far the favorite for The President of the United Arab Emirates Cup Group II and lived up to the expectations. For a short moment it seemed that Raihan would get into trouble, but cool-headed jockey Gerald Avranche, who rode him before, was never in doubt: “It is always the same, he is a bit lazy and I really have to wake him up”. At the end of the 2000 meter Raihan easily won in front of Poulain Kossack and Bachi Bouzouk.

The President of the United Arab Emirates Cup Group II, with a total purse of €40,000 is part of an international series of races that started in February in Abu Dhabi and which will after Baden-Baden visit Churchill Downs, home to the Kentucky Derby, followed by Saint-Cloud, Paris, Ascot and Moscow.
