Family affair in the final Euston Park ride

Euston Park, Thetford, Suffolk, Great Britain. Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 August 2017.


Yesterday we saw the final Euston Park Endurance Ride sponsored by Longines. This was the fifth in what the organizer describes as a highly successful season. CEI2* 120km, CEIYJ2* 120km and CEI1* 80km rides were held on the Euston Park Estate and surrounding estates in perfect weather conditions.

Even though this was the last ride of the season, British riders were very well represented making up close to 50% of all competitors.

Ride veterinarians confirmed that all horses came home safely, with a 65% completion rate, Jennie Henderson, Treating Veterinary President said “We had a safe and successful day with nothing to do whatsoever in the treatment hospital. Everyone looked after themselves very well – a really nice end to the season.”

Endurance World Euston Park. Foggy.In the CEI1* 80km the top three finishers were separated by ten second and it was Ahmed Azealdein – UAE (Morro) who could hold off the pressure from Lauren Mills – GBR (HS Jamal) and Elizabeth Ashmead – GBR (Warrens Hill Zhaheen).

There were only four starters, and one finisher in the CEIYJ2* 120km with Saeed Al Muhairi – UAE (Bullio Solute) taking the podium. One rider was vetted out after the third loop and the other two at the final vet check.

The CEI2* 120km turned out to be more competitive showing the dominance of the UAE riders with the podium finishers crossing the line hand in hand something we saw more this season. First place was for Rashed Al Mazrooei – UAE (Athos du Nouvion) with Mohammed Al Mazrooei – UAE (AS Rosa Linda) second and Humad Al Mazrooei – UAE (Temporada) third.

Mohammed Ahmad Ali Al Subose, trainer of M7 Endurance Stables who won the CEI 2* ride with Athos du Nouvion said “The horses all ran very happily at Euston Park. What is special about this venue is that the ground is amazing, the weather has been good all summer to run the horses; this is one of the best tracks in Europe.”

In order to maximize horse welfare and responsible riding, the prize fund was, as always, awarded based on FEI’s Best Condition Awards and up to a maximum of five riders.

The top Prize Winners of the Best Condition Award in each class were:
CEI1* 80km: HS Jamal ridden by Lauren Mills.
CEI2* 120km. Temporada ridden by Humaid Al Mazrooei.
CEIJYR2* 120km: Bullio Solute Saeed Al Muhairi.

Endurance World Euston Park. Cooling down.Lauren Mills, second in the CEI 1* 80km and winner of the Best Condition Prize for that class said: “Best Condition is the ultimate prize to win as you know that you are being recognised for taking your horse around the course and looking after it so well during such a competitive ride. He’s a novice horse and it absolutely tops it off to win this award. The organisation here is immense, this is the cherry on the cake.”

This was the fifth and final ride in the 2017 Euston Park season, the second season since the rides were reinstated in this stunning venue. The highlight of the season was the August ride, the HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup Festival UK Endurance Masters in which there were 356 entries in the FEI rides and 110 entries in the National rides. Over all of the five events there were more than 550 starters in the FEI rides, representing more than 35 nations.

Nick Brooks-Ward, Endurance Director at HPower Group Endurance, said “This has been a great end to what has proved to be a really successful summer of rides at Euston Park. We have been delighted with the quality of competition and are very grateful for the support of our sponsors. I’d like to take the opportunity also to thank our ground staff, officials and stewards who have all pulled together to work as a fantastic team over the summer – they’ve made this a great venue to compete in and we are all looking forward to working together again next year.”
