Issue 792

REVIEW/AL AIN adiyat racing 30 ADIYAT RACING PLUS ISSUE 792 Thursday 6th April 2023 Basically a two day fixture highlighted by the final of seven races, at midnight, the Al Ain Sprint, a 1000m dash with Prestige status which went the way of Heros De Lagarde under Richard Mullen for Ibrahim Al Hadhrami and HE Al Sh Nasser Mohammed Nasser Al-Hashar. The 6yo entire was actually doubling his career tally having not scored since his debut, over 1200m on the Abu Dhabi turf in February 2021, but he has been a model of consistency this season, placed in all four previous starts and in better company. The admirable Goshawke bounced back to winning ways in the 2000m handicap, produced to lead right on the line by Al Moatasem Al Balushi for Abdallah Al Hammadi and Al Ajban Stables. The 9yo entire enjoyed his career highlight on the dirt at Meydan Racecourse when landing the 2200m Group 1 Al Maktoum Challenge R2 on the last day of January in 2019 but has been a great servant to connections; this was his sixth career victory, third on dirt and second at Al Ain. Connections were soon celebrating a double, combining to land the following 1600m maiden for fillies and mares foaled in the UAE with Unbridled who was pretty much last for the first half of the race before finishing with real purpose to lead entering the final 200m and win going away from her rivals. A 4yo, she was registering her first success at the sixth attempt, her best effort before this when a close fourth in an Al Ain maiden over 1800m on her previous appearance. Heros De Lagarde DE LAGARDE & MULLEN BECOME AL AIN HEROS HEROS DE LAGARDE WAS ACTUALLY DOUBLING HIS CAREER TALLY HAVING NOT SCORED SINCE HIS DEBUT, OVER 1200M ON THE ABU DHABI TURF IN FEBRUARY 2021.
