Dubai Stables shine in Euston Park

Euston Park, Suffolk, Great Britain. Sunday 21 May 2017.
After a successful first season in 2016, this Sunday was the return of international endurance riding to Suffolk’s Euston Park.


Further four rides have been confirmed for this season: 18 June, 22 July, 19 August, and 2 September.

Endurance World Euston Park. The finish.The first Euston Park Endurance Rides, sponsored by Emirates Airline, took place in stunning weather conditions. CEI3* 160km, CEI2* 120km, CEIYJ2* 120km, CEI1* 80km rides were held on the Euston Park Estate and surrounding land.
Riders from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) were victorious in each class. Trainer Ismail Mohammed said of the day: “We started our European season last week at Royal Windsor Endurance but this was our first three-star ride and it’s just amazing. The horses finished in great condition and it looks very positive for the season ahead.”
Endurance World Euston Park. Rider of Great BritainIn the CEI1* 80km Ali Bin Allooba (Al Hedjaz Bhagwan) took command from the start and won with a 10-minute lead on Mohammed Al Kaabi (Ankur Da) with Bank Singh (Rakid Nikita 10) in third.
In the CEIYJ2* 120km we saw early leader Hamdan Al Marri (Hissana Al Awal) being eliminated after the third loop for irregular gait.
Victory was for Saeed Al Muhairi (Zo Go Dayr) who had a big lead over Chiara Careddu (Da Fuica Da Marinela).

Endurance World Euston Park. Crossing the water.One notable British finisher was Nikki Brown (Tinkerbell’s Image) from North Yorkshire, who finished third with a rescue pony who she and her mother have trained. It was their first 120Km ride, and Nikki was overwhelmed with her result: “I can’t believe I did 120Km. It’s a long way! But it’s been an amazing day, and worth the journey to get here. I am so surprised I can’t quite believe we did it.”

In the CEI2* 120km it was again complete UAE dominance with winner Saeed Al Harbi (JQ Safi Safra) crossing the line together with Ghanim Al Owaisi (Salam Banquetol) and third placed Mohammed Al Marri (Zulo).

Endurance World Euston Park. Victory.And it was more or less the same scenario in the CEI3* 160km with the podium completely occupied but UAE riders. Saif Al Mozroui (Preume de Paute) took top honours before Hamad Al Kaabi (Siam du Barthas) and Ahmed Al Subose (Cadigaam).

The top Prize Winners of the Best Condition Award in each class were:
CEI1* 80km – Ankor DA ridden by Mohammed Al Kaabi (UAE)
CEI2* 120km – Zulo ridden by Mohammed Al Marri (UAE)
CEIJYR2* 120km – Zo Go Dayr ridden by Saeed Al Muhairi (UAE)
CEI3* 160km – Siam du Barthas ridden by Hamad Al Kaabi (UAE)
Endurance World Euston Park. The podium.Nick Brooks-Ward, Endurance Director at HPower Group Endurance, said: “It was a fabulous start to our ride season today and I am so grateful to our ground staff for the incredible work they’ve put in over the last few months. We had extremely heavy rain in the days prior to the ride but given the long period of dry weather we’d had in the lead-up we ended up with really good going.”

In a move to promote endurance riding at a national level, organisers are staging two days of national rides at Euston Park over the summer.
Endurance World Euston Park. The leading group.The first was the day before the international rides in May (20th) and the second will be the day after August’s international rides (20th). Riders can select 80km, 64km, 40km and 32km Open/Advanced rides, 40km and 32km novice rides and a 16km pleasure ride. Competitors will be able to share the world-class facilities and courses that international riders enjoy.
Changes have been made to the course this year and extensive work on the tracks has opened up one entirely new loop and more options for adapting routes as weather and conditions dictate. The unusually dry spring has been very favourable for the course designers and will enable each ride to remain fresh.

Endurance World Euston Park. Food for the horse.Nick Brooks-Ward, Endurance Director at The HPower Group, the organisers of the rides, said: “We are delighted to be back at Euston Park for another season of first class competition in this fabulous setting. Huge thanks must go to Henry Fitzroy, 12th Duke of Grafton for kindly agreeing to host us on this marvellous estate once again. Thanks also to Emirates Airline – our generous sponsors, and to the local landowners who allow us to ride through their estates. I’m really pleased that we are adding two national rides to the series this year this underlines our commitment to helping to support and develop the discipline within the UK.”
