MIN’HA opens her scoresheet with Prix Dahman
Representing His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani, MIN’HA posted her first win in the Prix Dahman – Wathba Stallions Cup, a 2100m maiden for 3-year-old Purebred Arabians at Dax racecourse, France on Tuesday 6 August 2019. The filly, who is trained by François Rohaut, had an easy race sitting in at the rail just behind the leaders. Jockey François-Xavier Bertras pulled her out in the final turn, and MIN’HA, despite wandering in the straight, quickly pulled clear.
She finished in front of the Litt Robert-owned and Philippe Sogorb-trained EMPORIO, who was ridden byJ.Martin, by three-quarters of a length. AJAWEED, in the colours of Al Shaqab Racing, only a nose behind, took the third place after a tricky passage in the closing stages. She was saddled by Thomas Fourcy and ridden by Laurie Foulard.
MIN’HA had previously run twice for two places. She is a sister to Champion Assy, the first ever Qatar-bred winner of the HH the Amir Sword.
