Dariya claims the opening Mazrat Al Ruwayah Prep race under Ahmed Ajtebi for trainer, Majed Al Jahouri

December 6, 2012, Dubai ~ On an evening sponsored by Al Basti Equiworld, the pre-race talk was all about the rivalry between AF Alghabra and Kandar Du Falgas, yet on the night it was Dariya (Dormane (FR) x CR Samborsta (US) by Sambor) who ran out the impressive winner over a field of 14 at the Mazrat Al Ruwayah prep over 1,600m.

Dariya beat Thakif to lead home a 1-2 for his owner HE Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan and trainer Majed Al Jahouri in the time of 01:47:11.

Emirati jockey, Ahmed Ajtebi was in the saddle on the winner and said, “He is a very nice horse who has plenty of Group 1 form to his name so this was a big drop in class for him and it should do his confidence a lot of good.”

“We have Areem in the National Day Cup on Sunday and hopefully he can go close as well,” he added.
