TM Fred Texas Takes First in Kahayala Classic

Dubai World Cup, March 31~  Hot off the wire from GulfNews.com Sport:

FIRST WINNER OF THE NIGHT THEN GOES TO TM FRED TEXAS (USA) Adrie De Vries jockey of TM Fred Texas, said: “I thought I had a good chance going in. I saw him in Qatar he didn’t beat a strong field but the way he did it was impressive and he travelled well here. I rode him two days ago in the morning he handled the Tapeta very well he was very confident, he was in good shape. He’s very straightforward – this is the first time I’ve ridden him in a race but had a few rides on him to get used to him. This is my second win in this race and I like it a lot.
