Ebraz is the victor of Qatar Arabian World Cup
H.H Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani presented to H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Thani the Qatar Arabian World Cup (Gr1 PA) following Ebraz’s victory in the Qatar Arabian World Cup (Gr1 PA) at ParisLongchamp on October 6.
Ebraz (Amer) provided His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Thani with his fifth win in the Qatar Arabian World Cup (Gr1-PA). He is now the winning-most owner in this race. Ebraz started as favourite in this race, ridden by Maxime Guyon. He is trained by Julian Smart.
He sat patiently down the field, with plenty of running. In the straight he stormed down the track to take the lead from Al Shaqab Racing’s Khataab (Amer), trained by Thomas Fourcy and ridden by Jerome Cabre, who battled bravely and finished second three quarters of a length behind his half-brother.
The P. Collington-trained and Jean-Bernard Eyquem-ridden Mashhur Al Khalediah (Jalnar Al Khalediah) held on to third place almost a further length behind.
“It’s for day’s like this that we race”, commented the winning trainer Julian Smart, “I am very lucky to train horses such as Ebraz for His Highness Sheikh Mohammed. That’s five wins now in this race, not bad at all! Ebraz won the H.H The Amir Sword (Gr1-PA). I don’t normally train horses that shine at that age. They tend to be at their best later. He has won the best race in the world at the age of 6 and we are dreaming of next year. We do expect Ebraz to follow the example of Gazwan and continue his excellence for one or two years. My boss has had an amazing weekend after his wins on Friday and Saturday, so there was no pressure today and we’ve added a new victory, which is the most prestigious!”
