He is just a horse with a big heart who always wants to please.” THOROUGHBRED THRILLER The concluding race of the season in the capital and only Thoroughbred contest on the card, a 1600m handicap, was a thriller with a handful of the 16 runners in serious contention entering the closing stages. Ultimately victory went to Ali Haddad’s Chosen Mark, partnered by Bernardo Pinheiro for Ahmed Al Shemaili. AF Marmuq and apprentice Marcelino Rodrigues produced a gallant attempt to make every post a winning one in a 1600m handicap, only to be denied in the dying strides by Fernando Jara aboard ES Sudani, in the colours of Salem Ali Murshed Al Murar for Hamad Al Marar. For horses in private ownership, the opening 1200m maiden was won comfortably by Beau Do Soleil, never going to be denied once sent for home by Oscar Chavez in the colours of Byerley Racing for Abubakar Daud. Runner-up on debut, the 4yo colt’s sole start in his native France, he was making it third time lucky since transferring to the UAE.
