RB Kindle Lands Losail Cup in Doha
30 October, 2020, Doha, Qatar ~ H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani’s EBRAZ (Amer x Massamarie) expectedly made short work of the extra weight as the Julian Colin Smart trained colt bagged the PUREBRED ARABIAN HANDICAP (90 & above) with ease on Thursday, 29 October. Tomas Lukasek had the three-time Amir Sword winner, carrying at least 6 ½ kgs more than the rest, stay at the back of the pack early on in the 2000m run. As the pace quickened in the seven strong field coming off the bend, Lukasek found a gap and went up front. Umm Qarn’s Bin General gave a brief chase by Ebraz pulled away to win by two lengths and three quarters.
Al Shahania Stud’s RB KINDLE (Burning Sand x Rich Kinkga) sprinted to her third consecutive victory when she landed the LOSAIL CUP (PUREBRED ARABIANS) with ease. The Gassim Mohammad Ghazali-trained mare stayed on the rails and up front under Alberto Sanna in the six furlong sprint. She held on to her advantage even as the pace upped and another Ghazali ward, ATEEJ (AF AlBahar x Sahara Croixnoire), came threateningly close under Marco Casamento. RB Kindle gamely held her own and finished the matter, winning by two lengths and a quarter. Osama Omer Al Dafea’s EVOLUTION DU CROATE (Dahess x Salsa Du Croate) completed the top three with Mickael Berto in the saddle.
