Al Hamla Endurance Cup, Qatar

Ehab Hussein and Barzan Stud stables got first place

Endurance Village, Sealine, Mesieed, Qatar. Friday 14 April 2017.

Usually races in Qatar are on Saturdays but for this occasion because the Al Hamla Endurance Cup was a night race, the event was on Friday.

In total four races were scheduled with two national, 40 and 80km, a CEI1* 80km considered as a qualifier and then a CEI1* 100km.

Pre-ride inspection for the Al Hamla Endurance Cup was between 14:00 and 15:30 with the start of the main race at 17:00 whilst the remaining races took off at 17:15.

The CEN 40km started with 15 entrants and first place went to Faris Al Qahtani (Granted Wish) with Ayub Ali (Samourai HDT) in second and Zahar Al Bahnasi (Haboob Alreeh) in third.

A group of 21 starters commenced the CEN 80km over three loops 40, 20 and 20km.
Fastest starter was Isa Al Najjar (Jafar) but he couldn’t hold the pace and would finish in third position.
Leader after the second loop was Durad Singh (Al Jeemi Waheedah) but lost out to Aamri Al Houssaine (Al Manzoum) at the finish line.

Only four starters for the CEI1* 80km and two of them reached the finish. Gold went to Saad Al Dosri (Zitoon Al Shaqab) and second was for his stable colleague at Al Shaqab Endurance Team, Sikandar Ali (Perlado HLM).

An impressive field of 53 combinations tackled the CEI1* 100km over three loops of 40, 35 and 25km.
Jassim Al Kaabi (Aigoual Utopia) was leading after the first loop but got eliminated after the second one.
The honours were taken over by Ehab Hussein (Pushkin) who took a more careful approach at the start.
His two-minute lead at the start of the third and final loop gave him enough margin on Mohammed Juma (Sur Mabrouk). But Mohammed struggled to get through the final kilometres and was vetted out at the final check.

Pressure for the leader came from Khaled Ali Morad (In Situ) who left in fourth position, recorded the highest speed for this last loop but ended just under half minute behind Mohammed Juma.
Third place was for Saleh Al Marri (Phoebus Du Colombier) for who the top runners were too strong but always seemed to be on course to occupy a podium place.
