Mohamed bin Mubarak tops podium

Bahrain International Endurance Village, Zallaq. Saturday 17 December 2016.

To celebrate Bahrain’s National Day, the BREEF organised a CEI1* 80km and a CEI2* 120km race.

The National Day Endurance Ride saw entries from Bahrain Royal Endurance Team and local stables. Riders joined from Bahrain, GCC states, France and the United States.

Topping the podium at the end of the CEI2* 120km race was Shaikh Mohamed bin Mubarak Al Khalifa aboard Kelallie De La Cure.

His performance was very authoritative and, with an average speed of 25 km/h, he had little trouble in holding off Al Hareth Khalid Al Mutawa (Molva), who in turn laid down the challenge to the third placed rider atop Normandie.

The winners were crowned by Shaikh Duaij bin Salman Al Khalifa, President of the Endurance Committee and a member of the BREEF board, with winner Mohamed bin Mubarak stating: “Our team’s unity is the key for success.”

Shaikh Nasser, who attended the race, commented: “The level of competition showcased in the race reflects the development of the endurance sport in the Kingdom of Bahrain, which has allowed our riders to win top honours at international events. I’m very optimistic for the future of endurance riding in Bahrain.

“I’m also very pleased about the participation of our female riders and would like to praise their performances, as they represent an integral part of the Kingdom’s sporting system.”

The event featured several members of the Bahrain Royal Endurance Team (affiliated with the Bahrain Defence Force), who were requested to participate by HH Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad on the occasion of Martyrs’ Day.

“The participation of the Royal Endurance Team members who are serving in the Bahrain Defence Force came as an initiative to pay homage to our brave Bahraini martyrs who sacrificed themselves for their country, setting an example for everyone to follow.”

In the CEI1* 80km the winner was Rashid Al Rowaie (Al Jarih) with a 20-minute lead on Allan Leon (Vipper de Luriecq).

A group of five horses came in close together in pursuit of third position, and it was Abdulla Al Janahi (Orette de Tanues) who claimed the final podium place.
