Kao Kat wins the Royal Cavalry of Oman Clarendon Stakes (Group 2 PA)
13 August 2016, UK ~ Kao Kat MHF recorded his first Pattern race success as he drew clear of Radames by nearly four lengths in the Royal Cavalry of Oman Clarendon Stakes (Group 2 PA) at Newbury today, 13 August, with his stablemate Lou Raynal coming in third. Both Kao Kat MHF and Lou Raynal are trained for Mohammed Nasser Al Hashar by Beverley Deutrom. The five furlong sprint, held on Betfred Ladies Day, is one of 20 races sponsored by the Royal Cavalry as part of their increased sponsorship package with ARO this season.
A delighted Deutrom said. “I’m very happy with his win today. We will nominate him for the Jewel Crown in Abu Dhabi now. He jumped well, kept close up to Radames. I think the weight probably beat that horse today. The blinkers may have helped Kao Kat too. I did think in his last race when Radames beat him here that perhaps they might help, though it could just be the way he runs. Lou Raynal got a bit outpaced, but finished off well. He’ll go to Doncaster now for the President of the UAE Cup (UK Arabian Derby); the trip will suit him well.”
ARO Racing Manager Amanda Smith commented. “I am very pleased for Omani owner, Mohammed Nasser Al Hashar, whose family has been a long term supporter of Arabian racing here in the UK. Trainer Beverley Deutrom has been having a great season and it is good to see her rewarded with this Group level success.”
Smith continued. “We are hugely grateful to The Royal Cavalry of Oman for their sponsorship of this Group Race. The Royal Cavalry is one of ARO’s most loyal supporters and the grass roots of Arabian racing as well as Group level horses benefit from their sponsorship. I am delighted that they are sponsoring our season finale this year, to be run at Chelmsford City on 25 September, as that is always a very popular race day and is sure to provide a memorable end to the UK Arabian racing season.”
